And when they do get here dont start throwing out the B word after 25 games if things dont go well right away when they do get to the big club.
I wouldnt mind them looking at Gardiner or Kulikov in the offseason if thats the direction they decided to go in. With Mez on his way out and with Timonens status beyond this season being up in the air it would be fine to look at a player like Kulikov. If the price is right of course.
Exactly this. There are so few #1 defensemen in this league, and every team wants one. Realistically, the only way to get one of these guys anymore is to draft and develop one. Which is certainly not an exact science.
