I think we will have to wait until Tinordi, Dietz, Thrower, Beaulieu, Ellis or Pateryn are ready.
Komisarek is useless ever since Lucic sucked any virility away from him.

O'Byrne is not nearly as established as a player as the ones I listed above.
Mara hasn't played in the NHL ever since we let him go for the 2nd time.
Hamrlik was a good, big role d-man to have, but was a little old.
As for Gill, unlike guys like McQuaid, Boychuk, Ference, Mitchell, Greene and Scuderi, he had absolutely, absolutely NO foot speed.

These d-men have to be developed, but can also be acquired through trade. Boychuk was acquired by Boston before he broke out. McQuaid was developed. Ference was aquired. Greene was acquired by trade by LA. Scuderi and Mitchell were UFA signings.
