I mean look at the defence depth chart in Ottawa, it's win-now.

Borowiecki and Rutkowski.

Win now, lol. Because of Gochar and Phillips?
I think the future D in Ottawa is one of the strongest in the league.
Gonchar played well this year with Karlsson and Cowen out. With them back he is not as important. I believe Weircioch (next year) or Ceci (future) will fill that role. If not we may need a #4. Not a big deal. Phillips is a third pairing D man at this point.

Karlsson (22, need I explain?)
Cowen (22 already top 4)
Methot (27, top 4)

Weircioch (22, proven 5-6 at least, can play #4 role)
Gryba (25, proven 5-6 at least, can play #4 role)

Benoit (proven can play 5-6 role)
Borowiecki (23, next in line to make the jump)
Ceci (19, 1st round pick, top 4 potential?)
