Hopefully the Avs aren't done, they've added plenty of depth, so they have that insurance, but they really need to add some talent too.
The only thing I see is Carkner/Hunwick being used interchanging in the lineup depending on what we need (Grit/Enforcer versus Speed/Puck moving). Hopefully we get Suter, but worst case I expect Sherman to fill the need for a top 4 dman during the season when it becomes glaringly obvious we need one.

If it wasn't for our current D situation, I feel a bunch of us would be more excited for this signing too. Its just we all had Hunwick pegged into that #7 role, and now were all sitting here hoping Carkner is really just depth and we end up carrying 8 D.

Avs still seem ultra-hesitant with another potential lockout/strike on the horizon.

Carkner does play forward so I see him filling in the 4th line when needed.

Honestly Barrie and Elliott can't get up fast enough because most of our Dmen have almost no mobility.

At what point did it become obvious last season?

He's got a chance to really improve this defense NOW, I hope he doesn't waste the opportunity. I've been a fan of Sherman lately, but this is really crunch time for him IMO.

I think they'll use him where they feel he is needed. If they have injuries/need more grit on D he can go there, if they need more power in the forward ranks he can go there.
