As for top 4?

The only two in the AHL/Minors that are considered top 4 are; Brodin and Dumba.

Lorenz might not even make the dance. Cuma is often injured. Gunnarsson is a complete unknown. Seeler and Draeger are more than 4-6 years out at best.

If Scandella doesn't develop, that's a major problem.

If a guy like Bulmer doesn't make it or doesn't develop right, we still have Larsson and Zucker.

If a guy like Scandella doesn't develop right, who do we have that we can put in place right away?

With Scandella, its a matter of how much more upside can he tap. Even if he stops developing, he is still a serviceable NHL defenseman. So its not like he has to be immediately removed from the roster if that happens.
