We're playing Weber, Klein, and 4 kids with less than 2 years experience each when Gill is out - and I believe none actually has a whole consecutive season under their belts. We grow pretty good Dmen and still have a couple in Milw that will be looking for a spot.

If there is a D need it's the problem that Blum seems "more ready" right now than Ellis, and unless Blum is gonna' play with Klein next year - or he's gonna' put on 20lbs of muscle - I just don't see how we can put them both on the ice. So, that would seem an offseason deal Poile has to be looking to make.

As for "telling Weber" anything - you tell him to get his head in the game consistently and mentor these kids so we get another Klein or Josi outta' the bunch.
