We need a top 4 defenseman so Corey Potter doesn't get on the ice. Unless Schultz and Klefbom develop beyond reasonable expectations, we're never going to have a stud d-man (while keeping 4 high scoring forwards).

In my opinion:

Whitney-Bouwmeester
Smid-Petry
Schultz-Schultz
Peckham

Would be a good bridge to 2 of Klefbom/Marincin/Musil joining the team over the next couple of years.
