    Probably all of them, they're all bad. Even Barberio would have as much chance as those dorks.

    No. They're all better than Barberio (even guessing about Jerabek... just no).

    Even though Jerabek is the biggest unknown here, I actually have a good feeling about him. I don't know if he'll start the season with Weber, but I think he will be the one who ends up next to Weber.

    He,ll take time to adjust to the tempo on the smaller rink and lesser time to make decisions, but I think that he has the skills and the maturity (he's not 18 trying to adjust) to do so.

    Don't expect him to start off by playing with Weber, but it might fall to him at some point. His style does complement Weber's style.

    Yes, I think he could even start in the AHL if he needs some time to get used with the smaller rink. But we can still dream around here even if it's quite dark and pessimistic. :)

    No one

    Dress 7D, 2-2-1 formation when Weber is on the ice. The revolution begins.

    Feb-: Bergevin trades for a left defenceman for Weber to play with near the deadline. Maybe Enstrom

    The thing is that there one be ONE partner for Weber.

    1. Streit would be the best fit for him on the PP, but will see limited icetime at 5-on-5;
    2. Davidson, because of his younger age, is probably the only Dman from the group that can still improve. I bet he is the guy who will share most of Weber's icetime. Benn will play with him too, so will Alzner, depending on the oponent. I however feel that Alzner is a better fit for Petry, and that they will be paired togheter.
    3. And expect several trades/waives during/after the training camp. There will be talented players among these guys.
    EDIT: 4: as for Jerabek, he would indeed be the best fit he could play at the same level Sreit played during his second NHL season... but I expect the guy to be more similar to what Streit looked like during his first NHL season: a player that makes you nervous when he's on the ice. haha

    Funny thing about a PP unless one of the D is forcing the issue on zone entry (probing) there is no odd man advantage. One D has to be able to get up the ice. We struggled with this simple concept for years. Beaulieu was a huge boost in that regard and the results showed.
    But... apparently the young man parties on his Bday. :sarcasm:

    Streit isn't the answer.
    Even way back when;
    Souray and a spry Markov were the ones doing the probing.

    It would be awesome for the team if Jerabek took that spot and ran with it right out if the gate.

    You guys have some high standards for Jerabek. Don't know much about him but sounds like he's basically out 2nd best defenseman already.

    Where's the option for Cap Space?

    ps: that list is honestly ****ing terrible. None of those players should be anywhere near the top pairing. Jesus Christ :facepalm:

    Jerabek. Not because he's that good - just because he seems to have some offensive prowess. Don't see an Alzner - Weber combo being that great at moving the puck. I can't remember who Julien paired Chara with in Boston.
