And why would anyone tarde for a guy they could have picked up for free when he was on waivers (and who will likely be on waivers again)?
Belov(Should be 2nd-3rd pairing) - J Schultz (Our only top pairing defenceman)
Ference(Decent 2nd pairing) - N Schultz (3rd Pairing defenceman)
Smid(Should be 3rd pairing, decent 2nd pairing) - Petry (2-3 pairing)
What it should be
_________ - J Schultz
Ference - _________
Move Smid + for top pairing guy. Coburn, Martin? Moving Petry wouldn't be bad either. Maybe Petry + for (I know I'll get ripped for this) Wideman 25 retained???
Petry is the only thing resembling a top pairing D we currently have. Smid and Belov are acceptable second pair guys. Ference and Young Schultz are 5-6 guys, Old Schultz is just done as an NHLer.
Guys like Coburn aren't the answer either; he's not a real top pairing guy. I just don't think the guy we need is available right now.
