No excuses. I'm owning up and apologizing. I should have caught it when I re-read my post this morning, but didn't and feel like an idiot because of that. I hope anyone reading my post this morning either figured out I was being an idiot at the time or will now know that I completely debunk my earlier statement.

If Hamhuis were to leave, Eaton would be a decent candidate to look for as a replacement, but I question then who would step into our No. 3 role or would people just be satisfied to do it by committee?

Re-signing Hamhuis to keep our depth on defense is a luxury at this point. I would love to do it, but you've gotta wonder if we splurge there, where are we giving up in return?
the other question should be... Is Klein a legitimate top 4 Defenseman ?

Agreed, Klein has yet to prove himself as a legit No. 4 in terms of his inconsistent play, which leads me to ask if we're just going to fill the bottom four roles by committee or whether we either re-sign Hamhuis or likely overspend or gamble to bring someone in in the meantime to fill that hole?

I think right now we have 3 guys that could play in the top 2 of most teams. After that we have 3 guys that are bottom pairings on most teams.

Yeah, sorry If I wasn't clear on that.

I think our problem is, we need another guy to play in that 2nd pairing, we don't have one right now, and it's looking like we might need 2 (if hamhuis leaves)

Weber was dressed up as Tigger, Hornqvist as Zoro, Belak as a fireman, and Dan Ellis as Shrek

This thread just turned epic.

BUT

Here is the problem, as long as Hamhuis and Klein are around, they will be on a pairing together

That is reason enough not to keep hamhuis. We resigned the wrong guy.

Got that right.

But maybe if Trotz keeps pounding the square peg into the round hole the corners will round off and it'll fit.
