Take two of these:
Lie down and think happy thoughts about Shea Weber.
The upside I see about the current defensive roster is that there isn't a fall-off-the-cliff drop from one pairing to the next, so Laviolette doesn't have to run a top 2 into the ground. Schenn - Timonen could be considered the top pair, but Timonen's TOI should be a constant consideration for an 82-game season. With the (hopeful) emergence of Gustafsson arguably playing on the "third" pair, there is flexibility to distribute minutes judiciously so nobody is gassed by February.
Add another offensive-type Dman to play with Coburn, and we're all set for September.
Of course, with the inevitable injury epidemic, all logic is out the window.
