what will an emergence of Rielly and Gardiner mean for Dion?

I don't think it means anything to Phaneuf, other than he'll likely see his minutes slip a little. IMO, Gardiner's ceiling is a #3 guy on this team. Phaneuf is a top pairing guy and Rielly has the potential to be a good #1 in the league. I think our defense will shape up very well in the future, but I'd like to see another big, defensive guy added to the third pairing (maybe MacWilliam?). In 2-3 years I see the team looking like:
I'm assuming that Liles, Franson and Ranger no longer playing with the team. That'd be a nice team and we'd still have Percy and Finn in the minors! Pretty crazy if you ask me. Our defensive depth is out of this world.
