Could also easily replace Staal if they want three pairings, each with a key defensive specialist rather than all the puck moving offensive guys (Doughty, Kieth, Pietrangelo, Letang)... I believe Hamhuis is better than Staal. Weber a 2 way key cog, Hamhuis and Seabrook then all provide the stay at home guy that lets us roam and play up tempo hockey with all our offensive guys?
There is certainly room for Hamhuis, even if the 7th guy!
Question; can any one put together preferred side of play for each of the candidates?
Although most people will likely disagree.
Hamhuis is a possibility.
Although a slim chance with Weber, Doughty, Pietrangelo, M. Staal, Letang, Keith and Seabrook as probable locks.
