Kaberle was an all star most of his career, last yaer he had a bad start mostly because he showed up out of shape on a cup hangover. Even if he bounces back to 75% of the year before he is NHL average and two notches above terrible.

Bouillon was #5 in Nashville on a team that finished 5th overall in the whole NHL!!! I'm pretty sure he can contribute as a #5-6 here.

Weber is borderline but he is #8 so nothing wrong with that. Diaz looked like an average #5-6 last year, with normal progression he sjhould be ok as a #4.

Most NHL teams don't have a "true #1". I think Subban and Markov could be that #1 depending on progression and health. Worst case we have a lot of #2-4 guys(Gorges Subban Markov Kaberle Emelin Diaz).
