This would be my pick, and unfortunately for M-A-B he's the one I'd send down. Fergie is an excellent #7 d-man and should stay here.

I don't see the demotion as a really big detriment to M-A-B's development though, he's still pretty young for an undrafted d-man and I think that offense is the key to his success at the nhl level. He should be back here when he's firmly on the path to being a 50 pt/season guy.

As for Ulanov, he was a stud here 4 years ago and he's still only 34, it's not unfathomable that he plays some very solid d for us from here on out. I just hope he doesn't bolt on us again, he's already used this franchise as a stepping stone once.

Ulanov: 2gp, 0-1-1pt, +3, 21 mins/game

I really like the look of this d-corps right now. Lots of size and strength, and Brewer and maybe Semenov are the only ones who don't play like they have a bee in their bonnet. A group like this will make our goalies look good.
