Ribeiro might be one too, we don't know.
Bulis is a goner, which is cool. Zednik might be another one on the Bob-radar.
Zednik has some value around the league, I think. So does Ribeiro.
I don't think Bonk has much at all though.
I agree that those three & Souray could be moved. But: while Souray's flawed defensively, he does provide a real physical presence on the backend and has that excellent shot on the PP. Really, Souray getting his game back drastically improved the powerplay.
For lockerroom dynamics, physicality on the blueline and presence on the PP, I think the team needs to keep Souray.
