With it looking more and more likely that Regehr may be creeping in on Rivet territory, Regier may want to start considering some different defensive defensemen for next season. The UFA crop of defensemen is pretty poor, too.

Tallinder is has one more season on his contract after this one, and a cap hit of $3.375m.
So, let me get this straight. Tallinder, a HEALTHY SCRATCH, is our teams defensive savior?

We got the last good season out of him in Myers rookie year. Sorry. We did. This idea that we can magically promote a player who is a healthy scratch on a team that isn't exactly swimming in amazing defensive talent to our top pairing.

I should also point out we are currently carrying EIGHT d-men.

Adding Tallinder fixes nothing. If you really want a better defensive team, put brennan on waivers, trade Leopold, call up Pardy, scratch Sulzer.
