Or bring up Fedun for bottom pairing. Hell offer similar things Klefbom does, good first pass, good in own zone. Just doesnt have the physicality.

Fedun is a great fix. He has probaly hit his peak as a prospect in the AHL, and his upside is a 5-6 guy. Let Marincin and Klefa (who have higher upsides) develop together

All Im saying is defenseman take time.
What we do is go out and get someone so that if Fedun/Klefbom/Marincin are farther away then we think we don't have to worry. Fedun is not a great fix. A great fix is a guy who has proven he can play in a NHL lineup. Given our defensive issues this year one would think that if Fedun was this close he would've been given a few games as a look and see.

What we need to do is go out and get someone so that if Fedun/Klefbom/Marincin are farther away then we think we don't have to worry. Not like this year where we figured we can rely on Schultz and Whitney. Two guys that were big question marks before the season started.
