I wouldn't compare fistric to Douglas Murray. Fistric is physical but is gets caught running around in his own end, is injury prone and cannot anchor the third pairing like a Murray could, nor is he good on the penalty kill. Although not ideal Murray can move up to the second pairing for periods of time without looking out of place as he did in Pittsburgh. Although his foot speed is a concern if paired with a mobile defenseman he can play to his strengths.

what we need is a youngish top pairing dman, i just don't see the purpose of overpaying for a number 3-4 defenceman like coburn who will cost prv or an overpaid injury prone mesjaros who will cost assets. This would allow us to keep some of the young guys in okc or play in sheltered minutes and not get exposed or burned out. Call me crazy but I'd like to see j Schultz on the third pairing and on the number 1 pp unit.

Smid-petry/upgrade
Ference-n. Schultz
Murray- j. Schultz
Belov/Larsen

With klefbom playing #1 minutes in okc and the first call up
