Budaj > Desjardins > Irving IMHO. But not important.

I think we've kind of got our grinder guys sorted out now, so those like Kostopoulos or Winchester, if they can't stick with other teams, well, maybe we aren't so desperate anymore!

If we are going to start the season with PK on the sidelines, I'd think about claiming Brian Strait, however. Keep going with 8D. He's more along the lines of Gorges in terms of having an understated approach to D, but he's a free asset we might actually have a roster spot for if Subban is out. I'd rather keep 8D. I'd rather not have one of them be Tinordi (needs to play bigger mins in Hamilton) or Commodore. Strait might be a stay-at-home type to complement a Diaz, Kaberle, or Weber in some fashion. Bouillon is gone next year, and likely one of the PMD too (Kaberle or Weber). Having an NHL-ready keep-it-simple, ultra-cheap young D like Strait might be a fit.
