That presumes Kimmo still has what it takes and Coburn puts in a good solid season this year but a top 5 D of Kimmo, L. Schenn, Streit, Coburn and Gustafsson is pretty good. It also means that one of the other prospects should be able to slot in 2 seasons from now.
Actually, that's not a terrible idea; moving Grossmann to re-sign Timonen short-term.
The idea of keeping Timonen is that Hagg and Gostisbehere are projected to be 2-3 years out from impact.
I'm still not sure if I want Read over 4.00m though. The 3.00m figure projected by Meltzer is a steal for him compared to what the market would throw at him.
