worse case scenario we can have gorges play with subban instead of tinordi (or a good UFA signing). and were eventually gonna have to call beaulieu up, cant have him play in hamilton for the next 10 years.

next year is going to be the most opportune time for us to revamp our D-core, alot of contracts are gonna be up and theres gonna be alot of good UFA's. our top 9 core is very soft and it'll stay that way for some time, we need to compensate by having a tougher d-core. all we need is 2 PMD anchors for our PP (beaulieu and subban), anything more than that is overkill imo. and emelin is a good 2nd line PP anchor.

we can always keep diaz but then we'd still get bullied by tougher teams, and diaz is a pure PMD (which historically are much more expensive on the UFA market) and hes still relatively young.. he wont be cheap. im not ready to pay diaz 3.5M a year
