I think that's pretty solid, but I don't see anyway for Manning to be a top 4 defenseman here down the road unless Morin busts completely.
That said, he could fit in very nicely as a long-term #6 next to Gostisbehere should he continue to progress.
I think he offers big physicality, a little offense, and a more well-rounded game than Lauridsen.
Well any of those defensemen could bust to honest. The jury is way out on Morin, Hagg, & Gostisbehere.
Manning's approaching the "**** or get off the pot" phase pretty soon. If Bourdon stays healthy & rebounds, I don't see Manning or Lauridsen having much of a future here.
