Remainder of this year:
Phaneuf - Holzer (Holzer is a perfect fit for Dion as long as he can consistently play 20+ minutes)
Liles - Kostka (No need to bring up Gards yet)
Fraser - Franson (Solid bottom pairing, Franson asked for a bigger role and is being used properly)
Carlyle likes his LD/RD pairings, and I can't see him resorting back to Gunner - Phaneuf
Komisarek and Liles wont be here for next year, and I'm having a hard time fitting both Rielly and Gardiner into this roster moving forward, especially if Phaneuf stays longterm.
With the way the D is gelling right now, I could see Gardiner being moved. He could definitely help bring in a potential 1C candidate (Though I'm not fond of moving him just yet). If Rielly is able to make the jump next year, do you play him on the right side of Gunnerson, or will Kostka/Franson be able to solidify a top 4 spot moving forward? Do we bring in another defensively solid RHD?
We have a clear abundance of mobile PMD, who all play on the left side. It's a fairly good problem to have, but something has to change
