Kieth, Letang, Pietro, Weber, Seabrook, Doughty are how I see it shaping up.
If Letang makes the roster I don't see him as being in the TOP 6, replace him with a left shooting Marc Staal to play with either Weber or AP, the 7th. d-man will be a mobile fast-skating puck moving d-man, but will be relegated to PP time or injury replacement. You're going overkill on the right-handed d-man that are all of a similar sort of skill set. But a bottom pairing of Staal and Letang wouldn't be such a bad experiment to try as well, as both played in the 07 World Juniors and if memory serves did get paired up a bit... I'm sure you remember the thrilling shoot-out in the semis orchestrated by Captain Serious Towes.
