Marincin is comparable if not better than a Whitney with a bad foot.
Fillers like Deck,Henry etc have been better than what we got from Sutton\Peckham and Barker..

I dont expect our NHL D to be any better than what we are seeing at AHL level.
Plante is dog food right now, basically Jason Strudwick at the NHL level minus the physical play.

Teubert > Peckham in their respective leagues.

Sutton >>> Henry although Sutton probably won't be back with us.

Petry >>> Fedun respective to their leagues, Petry hits more, skates the puck out more, is more involved in the offensive zine, if a better passer, etc. Had Fedun not gotten hurt and lost a step you might have a case.

I'll give you Marincin > Whitney with a bad wheel based on Marincin's play prior to his last 4-5 games which hasn't been too great.
