That's MB. He was collecting 4th liners last year and bottom pairing D's this year.

Schlemko is a second pairing defenseman based on every metric.

How do you know Jakub Jerabek is not a top 4? nobody does yet, so don't make assumptions.

Sometimes you have to pay those guys if you want to convince them to sign. Terry, Carr, and Redmond are on a one-way deal also...

Molson has deep pockets

Morrow, Lernout and Jerabek will compete for the 8th spot unless there's an injury in training camp.

And you should have told San Jose that Schlemko isn't a top 4 guy because they were playing him with Dillon last year.



Anyways who cares about 8th defensemen and 14th forwards? I want news of legit Cs, RWs, #1LDs...

Of which only two will be on the bottom pairing. The other 3 will be some combination of extras and Laval Rockets. What's the big deal?

I hope Markov comes back. I would give him his 2 years, and even his 6 Mill, but the 2nd year will have to be at 4 or 3 not 6. His cap would be 4.5-5 which is more in line for a 38/39 year old.

If Radulov doesn't sign, I hope we give Kovalchuk 5.5 million for 1 year, although I'm not crazy about losing a 1st or 2nd for him. Perhaps they'll take Shaw?

Weber/Petery/Alzner thats 3 top 4 Dmen. only need 1 more top 4.

There is internal competition and insurance for injuries. Davidson/Jerabek/Morrow are unknown NHL quantities. Nothing is guaranteed that those 3 can play 82 games at NHL level so you get a bunch of em and make em fight it out.

He's old anyways and would not have taken us to the next level. We really need to offer sheet a young RFA center with an offer that can't be matched by their current team.
