Belov/Larsen/Grebs could literally be playing at a "decent AHL player" level (and I expect at least one of these guys will be able to play at an NHL level) and still be an upgrade on Whitney in the bottom pairing. Potter significantly outperformed him last year!

Signing Ference also allows us to play Nick Schultz (if he starts the season on the team...) on the bottom pairing, where he's still an effective if overpaid player. The difference between a bottom pairing of Whitney-Potter and N. Schultz-Belov/Grebeshkov/Larsen/Klefbom/Potter is substantial.
