Tyutin and Girardi have pretty much secured their spots... Staal we know will be a lock.... What's nice is that with Sanguinetti & Sauer we hare an almost sure fire shot that at least one of them will develop into an NHL Caliber defenseman, and a good one at that...

Outside of Staal, I'd be much more nervious if there was just one additional good defensive prospect that we were banking on to make it... But we got 2!
Very true. no team ever completely home grows their defense. Those of you who cant wait to see someone like sauer, dont get your hopes up. Some of these guys maybe traded in the near future.
