Defensively is where I see more of an issue. If Streit re-signs we'll have Streit, Hamonic, MacDonald, Carkner as the definites, and potentially a couple of Reinhart, deHaan, Donovan, Pokka, Mayfield, Ness(doubtful) or guys we brought in this year in Strait/Hickey/Finley(hopefully not). If Streit is let go/leaves, that leaves us with 3 open spots. I still think we'll need another PMD even if he stays. It just will come down to who is available and at what price.

Good points.

Sounds like Poulin/Nilson haven't been as consistent as last season.I'll cut them slack because the Sound Tigers opened with a very young roster. Let's say they finish up the season strong.

Do the isles re-sign Nabby for 1 more season and let Poulin/Nilson battle it out for the #2 spot in camp? Or do the isles let Poulin/Nilson battle it out for the Isles #1 goalie spot?
