Of course you can. Generally teams don't, and I don't expect Bergevin to do any differently. Especially since we don't have any easy targets for opening up a spot. Kaberle may be useful depth if an injury hits, Weber may have trade value, White still has value to us, Armstrong was just signed this off-season and is Therrien's pet, etc. None are worth losing for nothing just to add an enforcer, I would say.
