Thoughts on them? Now that we have Hamonic and Stone for the next 3 years as the #4 and #5, we'll be a lot better. I know, I know we've said that we had a solid d core previously but honesty there was a big difference between the talent of #1-3 defenseman and the #4-6. It was bad. Smith is old, but he won't let in terrible goals at the wrong time. He's a stopgap. Bennett should have a better year, no matter how many think he's a bust. Jankowski should be getting a look this year. Yes, the 2012 1st rounder.
