Top 10 POTENTIAL rental defensemen

I used the word "POTENTIAL" as it is hard to predict a month before the deadline who definitely will or will not be available. I'd be curious to see others lists. Pretty weak group this year.


1. Ryan Suter (probably won't be traded)
2. Nicklas Grossman (probably won't be traded)
3. Johnny Oduya
4. Bryan Allen
5. Corey Sarich
6. Pavel Kubina
7. Hall Gill
8. Andy Sutton
9. Jaroslav Spacek
10. Sheldon Souray

Others:
Adrian Aucoin, Greg Zannon, Scott Hannan, Sheldon Brookbank, Shane O'Brien

It may be hard to believe, but Andy Sutton has been playing amazing this year. He's been solid physically and he surprisingly shows a ton of offensive game. He'll probably go for a 2nd-3rd, maybe even less, but part of me wants Tambellini to re-sign him.

I know, I really thought about putting him a couple of spots higher on the list but it's Andy friggin' Sutton and I just couldn't.

I believe the OP was referring to potential as in "who could possibly be available" not potential as in "potential to become a number 1 d-man"

BINGO!!

I even explained that, scary that someone couldn't pick up on that and then thought he was going to be big daddy cool by trying to diss me, epic fail.

Back on subject, any feedback guys?

That should come as zero surprise. Ottawa fans saw a nice, long glimpse of him - he was a behemoth!*

*unless you're thinking of counting on him for the playoffs, where he was not very good unfortunately.

Cory Sarich should be at least #5 on that list.

It's not hard to believe at all because Sutton is a good hockey player. He's big, likes to hit, decent offensive ability for a defensive defenseman. His only flaw is his positioning. He's a really solid player that I would love to have back on Long Island, although that will never happen.

I just dont see Sheldon Souray going anywhere,think Dallas signs him to a new contract.

I was thinking these names as well:

A.Aucion (PHO) 2Million
M. Jurcina (NYI) 1.6Million
K.Foster (NJD) 1.8Million(Hopefully they drop)

I actually hope we keep Sutton, he's been my favorite player on the back end so far this year. He provides us with size and grit down low, something we've lacked for a while. I don't care if he's near the end of his career, if we are not getting something that's going to equally help us out next year in that department I'd rather keep Sutton. I have actually been surprised with him the last few games, he's been joining the rush and dangling a little bit haha.

That and the fact that he has rage issues and tries to cripple people.

Oh wait....'he's not that kind of player'...he even said so. Large sack of crap.

If the Sens crash, Kuba will probably be in play.

I think Quincey is more likely to be traded than O'Brien. His potential return is much higher

I'd rather have Sutton than Gill or Spacek or a few of the other guys on that list. You can put him higher if you'd like

I like seeing Johnny Oduya at the top of this list, pretty solid rental as well for whomever seeks his services from Winnipeg.
