I think whatever the scenario, Weber is the spare RHD, whereas Corrado is either in the top-6 or in the minors.

Basically:

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Garrison-Tanev
Edler-Corrado

or

Hamhuis-Bieksa
Edler-Garrison
Alberts-Tanev


Either way, Weber is the #7D. Weber simply is not one of our 6 best defenceman, basically any way you slice it. And i don't see any reason to force him into the lineup just because.

Corrado on the other hand, if he really impresses, has the potential to really add something to team, more than Weber can. But he'll have to earn a regular top-4/6 spot (with 3 evenly rolled pairings) to make it worthwhile. If he's not going to be in the lineup basically every night...send him to the minors and go with an Edler-Garrison pairing, and Tanev anchoring the bottom-pairing instead.
Pretty good assessment.
