Orpik - Martin
Eaton - Letang
Murray - Niskanen?
With Despres ready to go if we need a more mobile D against a fast team? I like it. I honestly believe that Despres will find his way into the lineup in the playoffs and solidify himself. It won't be easy with Bylsma, but I just have a feeling.
That's why Despres will play in the playoffs when needed or will stay in the AHL. He's going to be a great defenseman, however he still a rookie and makes rookie mistakes. In the playoffs....
