Thoughts from the farm on the D situation. Barber is probably still looking at a fill in role next year, or maybe what Gudas saw this year, a late season call up. He put up points this year, but it was the quietest 40 point season I can ever recall. Taormina started of slow but really picked up at the end of the year. Wouldn't mind seeing the two of them as the 8/9 role.

For anyone counting on Sustr being ready next year...don't. He's shown a lot of potential, but needs a lot of time to even get used to AHL speed, let alone NHL speed (that's not saying he hasn't been better than Lee...but that's not saying much).

If the thought is to trade for a top-4, I think the best parts to offer up would be Connolly and Wyman. Both are close to being ready and have have some value, but I think there are others in the system that could fill their roles. Toss in Salary going back or a mid round pick and that might get a good return.
