That leaves us with;

Timonen - Schenn
Streit - Coburn
Grossmann - Gustafsson/Franson

Now again were stuck with too many defensemen that need to play.

In 2015, assuming we lose Timonen, we have

Franson - Schenn
Streit - Coburn
Grossmann - Gustasson

Which is solid but are we content with that defense or do we try and improve through trade or UFA?
Well you could move Gus & a pick for Franson. I know that wouldn't be popular but Franson's only 26 an already a proven top four defender & a right-handed shot. We're basically hoping Gus can turn into a top four defender so I honestly wouldn't have a problem with it. Then ship Mez out for whatever.

Timonen - Schenn
Coburn - Streit
Grossmann - Franson

I'm not entirely sure if the numbers would work or if it would even happen but I would like that lineup going into next year if it went down.
