Smid and Belov are your second pairing guys. Ference and Young Schultz are third pairing guys. Old Schultz is done. So yeah, one more top four guy.



Semantics. A Weber or Subban would be great, but they are nearly impossible to come by.
So Ference is a number 3 on a Stanley cup winning team but a bottom pairing guy in Edmonton? I don't think so. Schultz defensively
needs a lot of work but offensively he is easily a top 4 defenceman and the closest thing we have to top pairing offense.

Everyone who is complaining that we didn't go after Downie need to ask themselves if you would move Gordon for Downie? Third line center > Third line winger.
