Pens top 4(no order)
Dick Tarnstrom
Brooks Orpik
Josef Melichar
Michal Rozsival

Rozy has been injured all year but I'd say Tarnstrom is the least vital. His offense is a huge help but he's mediocre at best defensively.

Here is the Flyers D depth chart looking at how much they are used

1. Eric Desjardins
2. Kim Johnsson
3. Eric Weinrich
4. Marcus Ragnarsson
5. Joni Pitkanen
6. Chris Therien
7. Jim Vandermeer

I think it is Weinrich because he is used the most often and I would rather have Rags move up and see Vandermeer in the lineup more often.

Right now I couldn't say. I think Sopel is playing well, Malik and Jovo finally came out of their funk last night. Allen is developing nicely. Salo has still been one of the best all year. No idea.

Colin White. The guy is a beast and from Nova Scotia to boot...still, it'd be dumb to cut Raf, Nieds or Stevens over him.

In Calgary, our depth chart is like thus:


(either one I'd play over Monty btw)

Of the top 4, I'd have to say the one I'd drop is Lydman. While he is argueably our most well-rounded D-man, the fact that he doesn't excel in one particular area makes him the most expendable (as much as I hate to say it, because I love the guy to death).

"Shout shout let it all out, these are the D we can do without come on i'm talking to you { Tomas Kaberle}" When push comes to shove in a tight playoff series he is a guy that must be kept on the bench unless its PP or you are two goals down. He makes some totally mistifying errors. he reads the rush poorly at times and can have a really hard time when he's trying to clear the zone via the glass or a chip off the boards. the problem is we also have the great marchment who is s-l-o-w. If Kaberle is used properly i'm all for him, regular season i would not cut his ice. Crunch time he's a toy to be put in the toy box until needed.

I guess Rachunek for the Sens, but I wouldn't want to lose him.

I agree, put a fork in that turkey because he's done.
