Honestly im scratching my head about our defence next season, there's just not enough room. i want to see Zids and Fayne re-signed. Zids brings wayyyyyy too much offensive to simply let him go. We need all we can. Fayne is solid and we need to show him he's part of the plan.

Larsson has to play all season too. I know we need guys like that but Sal has to go, i'd even try to get rid of Volch and willing to live with rookies mistakes like i did all seasons.

This is what i'd like to see:

Greene Fayne

Larsson Gelinas

Merril Zidlicky

Volchenkov Harrold


but our chances of getting rid of Sal AND A-train are pretty damn slim imo

Who's killing penalties, though?


Ehhh, I don't know I think one of them will be back.

I wonder if Volchenkov is going to be brought out, it was kind of odd Volchenkov was a healthy scratch yesterday.  Salvador and Clowe I wonder if they are going to be healthy to play at all next year, especially Clowe think he has another concussion this year

I assume they'll buy out Volchenkov actually having $ and healthy scratching him. Sal's not going anywhere and we all know it deep down as much as we want him sent out to Edmonton. I'm afraid that means Fayne will be gone which he probably shouldn't be but I don't know how you let Zidlicky go. And let's remember, he only would accept a trade here apparently 2 years ago, so he's back if we want him. And I don't know if you want to pay Fayne a lot. Betting on defensive defensemen's not the best move IMO


So I guess I'd do this:



Larsson-Gelinas/Severson (if Gelinas can't play defense anymore still)


Harrold stealing half of Larsson's games for no reason

My best guess is that the only big question mark is Fayne- he will probably have a lot of interest in ufa and I'm not sure if Lou will find it cost effective to keep him or just let him walk and open up a spot on the right side. But here is my guess at the d coming out of camp-


I don't believe Lou would buyout sal or volchenkov, but he might find a willing trade partner for one of them. If sal is on the team he won't be the 7th, but volchenkov might. Zidlicky is re-signed because he's good with the Czechs and brings a unique skill to the blue line. Gelinas starts in the A again to work on his defense and harrold is re-signed. I can't see how people actually think we'll have room for severson unless something very surprising happens, as good as he is expected to be.

If Fayne isn't back it changes things because then I could see both volch and sal staying, or they could have Merrill play the right side and keep gelinas up, but even that's risky because you have larsson and Merrill as your top two rhd pkers, so I'm going with the assumption that Lou wants Fayne back because he's clearly the best all around rhd we'll have next year.
