Smid - #2 or #3
Whitney - #3 (if he is fully recovered then might revert back to #2)
Petry - #4
J. Schultz - #5 (as he gains experience he will become better and be better than #5 but right now he is probably a #5. Will have his moments where he is great but will struggle at other times)
N. Schultz - #4 or #5
Fistric - #6
Peckham - #6 or #7
Potter - #7

If we could somehow add Subban () our D would look pretty good
Nice Opinion!

Opinion: a view or judgement formed about something, not based on fact or knowledge:

Now the Facts:
With Smid-Petry as top pair
Dubnyk was minimum 2.15Ga .930SV% depending on bottom 4.

When we rolled
Smid-Petry
Whitney-XXX
Peckham-Potter
.750 win% goalie with less than 2.00GA and .940Save%

A D pair is equal to the sum of its parts.
last half of the season smid-petry were the 7th best tough comp D pair.
three of those 7 are no longer together.

Whitney and N. Schultz were former top pairing D men.
both are now healthy.
