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.
I really doubt very much that Despres will be up there if this season gets going. That would mean waiving Strait, Bortuzzo and Reese which is highly ulikely that all three would get waived. At this point I would think that Lovejoy would be waived before those three.
