phaneuf-liles
gardiner -schultz
holzer - blacker
What happened to Franson?

Yep after that goal I think he should obviously be on the all rookie team.

Forgot about him. Guess that means blacker will have to stay down an extra year. Or just trade phaneuf now and have a completely new defense group.

Awesome for Gardiner. Can't wait to see him when he's even more confident and mature as a free wheeling defenseman... Looked like a star tonight...

Easily the the best rookie defenseman this year. Let's hope Blacker can follow in his steps.

I'd be really happy if we can get Schultz...that's like getting a free top 10 pick.

^ Blacker will. He was phenomenal in the preseason and is always the best player on the ice when I see him play.

If we sign Schultz I'd be so happy.

Percy, Blacker, Schultz, Gardiner.

Those are 4 very smart, quick skating, overall great dmen.

Not to mention very cheap ELC's too.

Yeah they're going to need to clear the deck of defensemen soon to make room for those promotions. I really hope we get Schultz, and if we end up drafting Murray, we might be looking at Murray, Gardiner, Schultz, Blacker. Big, smart, mobile. Then you don't mind Schenn and Gunnarsson rounding out the future corps. Get rid of Liles, Phaneuf, Komisarek, Franson on a need to basis.

I don't think we can get rid of Phaneuf. I think he still needs time, giving him the captaincy was premature.

Say what you want about Phaneuf but he does bring that edge that neither Gardiner, Schultz, Blacker, Murray etc will bring. He drives players like Stamkos out of their mind.

We need that type of defenseman. He's just a bit overpaid, which hopefully is rectified in his next contract.

I wouldn't move Phaneuf unless it's an absolutely can't miss type of deal.

Blacker has some edge to his game.

One of the Wisconsin Badgers just tweeted that Jake Gardiner is trending worldwide. That'll probably attract Justin Schultz

Deep in the future, those 4, will make Dion expendable.

His next contract should be a flip of cap hit between him and Kessel, Kessel making 6.5 and Phaneuf making 5.

Phaneuf is a solid dman, and a good #2/3 but shouldn't be our captain, or playing 25 mins a night. More suited for about 22-23.

It'd be cool if we signed Suter and ran with:

Gardiner-Suter
Gunnar-Phaneuf

That'd be an awesome top 4, any team would have a hard time complaining about.

By the time those four are hitting their primes, Dion's contract will be running out. 2015 I believe?

He had so many good chances and I also think he was a bit hesitant to shoot the puck before. This move that he used to score on the Sabres is like his patented move. He can really pull it off any time he wants.

His best is the little slow-up then spin-o-rama that he tried earlier in the year. Still needs to improve defensively but the good part is that most of the bad parts are more defensive gaffes that can be taught with good positioning and experience. As opposed to taking too many risks offensively, so he won't really need to tone down that part of his game.
