What depth exactly? Erat is much more reliable defensively than DB/DD and is bigger too. Erat is also more proven than Desharnais and arguably Bourque. I'd keep Bourque since he brings elements that we don't have in abundance but one of DD/DB has to go. Erat has been mismanaged ever since McPhee traded for him, he's had back problems in the last years but he hasn't declined that much. He used to be a bonafide 50-55 pts in a not so offensively gifted environment in Nashville. Erat is in the doghouse just like Grabovski was last year. You buy low and you sell high on DD while he's picking up points.
