Nothing wrong with protecting Hunwick, he had an excellent season in '11-12 when actually called upon to lace up the skates. People cannot eliminate '10-11 from their memories, which makes them extremely biased. O'Brien had good stretches but he was a complete and utter mess, and re-signing him for 3 seasons makes me unhappy to say the least (though I guess we can always trade him away).

Varlamov

EJ, Hejda, Zanon, O'Byrne, Hunwick

Landeskog, O'Reilly, Downie
Olver, Stastny, McGinn
Parenteau, Duchene, ??

Logically the last forward spot would be Jones, but given his one-dimensional play, question marks about him returning back to his original skating speed, and mediocre contract, maybe Kobasew instead. Mitchell and Hejduk would be other uninspiring candidates, though Hejduk would probably win based on history.
