So the dust has settled, post-July 1 and there seems to be a sense of mild nervousness 'round these parts in regards to the back end. 1 proven defensive defenseman (BigRig), another pretty good option in Kuba and a couple "might be's" in Campoli having a solid season/Carkner improving/Lee maturing.
The fact that Andy Sutton hasn't signed, especially with the "crazy" money being thrown around (seriously...Dan Hamhuis is all of a sudden a 5 million dollar defenseman? For what...35 points). I'd be thrilled if BMurray gave Sutton a 2 year deal at 2 million per. He's a fairly safe replacement for Anton and clearly benefitted from playing alongside 65.
Sign Mount Sutton!
