I don't think that's the perfect answer..What we need is at least one top 2 defenceman in the mix. Waiting around 3-4 years for Klefbom/Schultz to emerge into that position keeps us near the bottom again. We already have Petry and Smid in the top 4 roles and about 50 bottom pairings....Get a top 2 and let's see if Schultz can handle it with some help. Klefbom should be either 3rd pairing or OKC to start..

That's one of MacT's jobs and if he fails, he's no better than ST. We can't continue to wait for all the young players to grow without the support they/we need. Mac talked of bold moves and getting depth we need so I hope that includes that top 2 D.
