Hamilton's value lies in his defensive game and PK abilities...he's above average in both of those areas. However, I think his vision (playmaking) is underrated and he still has more offensive upside then he's been showing, though he's been steadily improving in that area in Worcester this year. He should turn out to be an ideal 3rd liner.

If the Sharks are going to bring up a "kid" as a 7th d-man it'll likely be Petrecki (who's been good recently) if they re-sign him. Acolatse could use a bit more time in the AHL, though he's getting close. Doherty - no.
