I do agree that penciling in Elliott/Siemens/Jones in three spots out of six is too risky.

The youth movement up front went rather well in my opinion. I can't see playing all three being any worse of a decision than playing SOB/Hunwick/Zanon regularly.

Siemens > Zanon, Elliott > Hunwick, Jones > SOB, even if all three were to be put on our blue line tomorrow night that would remain accurate.

I think it makes sense to move one of those three bottom pairing guys, let Siemens and Elliott start out 20 games in the AHL and then make a decision around the quarter mark. It also depends on what, if any moves we make this offseason. Signing Streit, change of coaches, moving Staz, etc.

We could have 4 new defenders on the blueline next season for all we know.
