Gorges is top 4 and here for years. Markov is UFA after next year but will keep resigning after that if we want him, hes still top talent. PK will be resigned long term after next year and will take over from Markov as our top guy, still can improve defensively. Emelin is UFA after next year and must be resigned long term and he is top 4 material. Diaz is UFA after next year and is the big question. Diaz will command top 4 money as a UFA, ie $4M or so. Do we have essentially 5 guys playing top 4ish minutes and should we pay 5 guys as top 4 ? Thing is, it has worked nicely this year and Diaz is great insurance because you know why. Downside is we have less money for the forwards. Rounding things out you could resign Cubes for another year if needed but otherwise a couple of all those D prospects should be able to play at least bottom pairing minutes in the next season or two. We look good here, no need to get another D-man by trade or UFA, just make sure we resign our own guys.
