We seem to have a lot of uncertainty on defense these days. Many fans want to see Bouwmeester and his salary gone, but can he really be moved? I can't see much demand for his services. Bortuzzo has had multiple "lower body" injuries in the last couple of years, and is now disabled. What's going on with him? I thought Schmaltz had turned the corner, but the left-handed Gunnarsson took his spot as right defenseman on his first game back. Can Walman or Mikkola make the jump to the NHL after half a season in the minors this year?
