The Next Dman

Who do you guys think will be the next young d-man to make the team? Once the wastes of spaces like Brookbank and Roszival are gone?

Wastes of space?

Brookbank is solid extra defender and Rozy has been big part of Hawks success since joining team

Quite frankly I can't wait for the Brookbank/Rozy saga to end. Whoever fills in might not be much better but I can't see anyone being worse lol

I find it funny people call Brookbank and or Rozy wastes of space...just wait until we have one of these young kids on the team and you will see that they were very adequate for their role.

Never understood the Brookbank hate.

Rozsival has been a great #6 Dman for this team. I don't know that you could find 5 teams that have a better #6 Dman. Brookbank's always been solid when he's been in the lineup. He's an everyday NHLer on a lot of team. Is he anything more than a #6 Dman? No.. but he's not terrible.

I mean, FFS, this team was icing Jassen Cullimore and Nick Boynton on their third pairing a couple seasons ago and someone would dare complain about Sheldon Broobank? Perspective.

As to the question, I think it'll be Clendening or Dahlbeck.. I lean Dahlbeck just because he's a safer option for the bottom pairing, especially if he's playing with Leddy.

Rozy has been a blessing since his arrival. Brookbank is an adequate #7 for this team.

Cap space will make Rozi and Broookbank expendable.

I think it will be Johns or Dahlbeck who make it next. Unless we are considering Rundblad in this.

Dahlbeck then hopefully Johns from amongst the prospect pool. Don't really know what the plan is for Runblad, but he was a 2009 pick and is UFA after next year so it would appear to be his time to make it or not. It wouldn't be a big surprise if Clendening gets lost in the shuffle.

Try looking around the league and find many betters 6/7 combos. What a joke.

Me neither, and he has actually played well at defense this year.

I'm still pretty confused on Why they traded for Runblad and a 2nd rounder no less. He used up all our cap space for this year (the only way I see TT coming before playoffs is sending brookbank down and he would probably get claimed) and we have a few pretty good young d men in Johns, Clending, dahlback. Couldn't they just traded for him over the summer if they really liked him? Its puzzling, especially with him not even playing.

Maybe somebody else can explan it to me. I'm not making an argument on talent BTW, mostly just timing.

Only Stan knows why he 180ed on his no 8 d men statement.

Roszival is a fine #6 and Brookbank is fine at #7. Should he be playing Wing? No, but that's not his fault nor his choice where he's put in the lineup. These things are called depth and I'd go so far as to call Roszival more than depth come playoff time as he's a guy who should be in the lineup every night on the bottom pairing at that time of year.

Stan said he's been trying to get Runblad for a season and a half. I'd assume that the Hawks had a standing offer to the Coyotes for a second and they jumped on it.

He's obviously coveted by the Hawks. Much like Teravainen coming over explains the deadline trade of Pirri, I believe trades made in the offseason will explain this deal. Brookbank will be gone, probably Roszival or Oduya as well. That opens 2 and maybe 3 spots at defense next year. Plug in Rundblad and Dahlbeck/Johns/Clendening to get to 7.

I agree with this.
Replacing Roszival and Brookbank with better players in the 6 and 7 spots is going to be a very big task without significant overpayment or a huge injury risk.
Rundblad 8
Dahlbeck 9
Clendening 10

I don't want to see Johns for a couple years, he has alot of work to do if he's going to make the bottom pair and stick anytime soon in my opinion.

Folks seriously think Rozy and Brookbank have been bad? There may not be a better 6/7 in the league. You may recall that before we acquired Rozy he was top 4 in PHX. They've been more steady than I think can be reasonably expected of depth defenders.

Edit- to answer the question though I see Clendening and rundblad getting the next spots.

With the salary cap now expected to be $68 million for the 2014-15 NHL Season, I don't expect Brookbank to be back and Rozsival could be traded.

How does "could be low as" imply expected?

And I think Dahlbeck is next, he seems to have the least risk, which is what you want in a 6/7 d-man. And most likely no one coming up will be better than Brookbank their first year, let alone Rosi

Sheldon Brookbank will be an unrestricted free agent in 2014, so he may not be back.
