Who is teams #1 if Foote is gone?

I have read suggestions over the last few months from some of you (not all of you or even most of you, just some of you) that Foote should be traded at some point. My question is if Foote is gone who becomes the Jackets new #1 defenceman?

Come to think of it I have a hard time thinking of Klesla or Hainsey as a #1 defenceman. They are good but they just dont quite what it takes to be the guy, both have too many shortcomings. So actually this will probably be a pretty lopsided poll, but I was just curious what people thought on this matter, since nobody really mentioned who would take over as the lead guy if Foote is gone and he isnt replaced by someone coming in.

I voted for Klesla but it was more of a sentimental choice since he is my favorite and I think he has alot of untapped potential still. I also like that he can play every situation, PP, PK, tons of 5-on-5, nothing he cant do.

Out of the choices I'd say Hejda. I'm hoping in a few years the answer will be Methot.

Are you kidding me?
When the Mooseheads waived him, all Canada cheered.
The guy's a scrub.

I really think you guys should give me..errr him a chance. Lots of potential.

Seriously though, it would be Rusty IMO.

You could argue that Foote is not the team's number 1 right now. He's on the top shutdown pair, but IMO a true number 1 defensemen plays in all situations very effectively. The closest thing we have is Klesla.

Actually it was pretty dumb of me not to include an option for someone new coming in via trade or FA to be the new #1. There probably is close to a 50% that would happen, then again maybe not since they will want to get Methot up here.
