Kieth, Letang, Pietro, Weber, Seabrook, Doughty are how I see it shaping up.
Not really concerned. Doughty has always been extremely impressive in international hockey. Letang is average defensively, but so are tons of defencemen from every other national team, and the mobile ones tend to be quite successful internationally. I wouldn't want Letang paired with another offensive defenceman, but I think he would be great with M. Staal, Hamhuis or even Pietrangelo.
