I wouldn't be surprised to see Tangradi or Jeffery there, because I don't think the Pens will be signing anyone else (even though they should). Our D right now is:

Letang-Despres
Martin-Orpik
Niskanen-Engelland
Lovejoy

It isn't bad, but it leaves a lot to be desired. I still think that DB will put Despres along Letang, since he said he would do that at the rookie camp this year.
If Martin can step up and be the d-man he was supposed to, a Letang-Martin pairing becomes your number 1 pairing. I think thats a lot to ask of Despres to jump in and play top pairing minutes.

Letang - Martin
Orpik - Nisky
Engelland - Despres/Bortuzzo/Strait

Lovejoy should never be in a pens uniform again
