If he returns to form and Garrison becomes solid on the right side we would have a very similar defence to the 10-11 nucks.

Hamhuis-Bieksa=Hamhuis-Bieksa-more experience together which makes it a better pairing.

Edler-Ehrhoff=Edler-Barker- Similar but Barker is slower yet a little better in his own zone than Ehrhoff.

Ballard-Salo=Ballard-Garrison- Garrison could be more effective than Salo that year (recovering from injuries etc.) And Ballard is miles better than when he started with the canucks.

Plus we have a more experienced Tanev and Alberts as depth.

Just watched the interview of him and oh man, does he look out of shape or what. Big beer belly with pretty under-trained chests

Barker is an awful NHL player. Wild fans will tell you how awful he was.

Hopefully he'll stay in his #8 role and never have to play.

Are you kidding me? Ehrhoff was called Errorhoff in San Jose for a reason. In Vancouver he was alright but throughout the season and playoffs he made brutal plays in his own zone. For example, in a game against the Avs, I believe he tried to deke some player right in front of Luongo and the guy just poked it away and scored on Lu.

Also I said only if Barker regains his 40 pt form, if that doesn't happen (which probably won't happen)he is indeed a depth dman

Oilers fans have nothing good to say about him fro last season. I really hope he pans out, but I don't have high hopes.

Wild fans will also tell you how awful their entire defence corps is. Aside from Suter, now...

I see Gilbert as half-NHL, half-AHL.

Spurgeon and Scandella will eventually play better than he does.
