Yes imo.

Weber / Josi
Klein / Blum
Ellis / Gill

Ellis and Gill have highly complementary play styles and that pairing may actually be fairly solid. I have a feeling Klein / Blum would float between decent and infuriating most of the season, but we'll see. Ekholm can fill in for injuries or if Ellis / Blum is just totally messing the bed. Multiple injuries at the blueline next year would be a disaster; as-is I feel like only 4 of our starting 6 are real NHL defenseman, and that might actually be a bit generous but I think Josi deserves it.
