    which D to pick up

    I have Gonchar and it's time to drop him, I'm just not sure who to pick up in his place. The rankings can be an obvious giveaway but there could be better options.

    Here's the top FA's

    Bieksa
    Seidenberg
    Hamrlik
    Wideman
    Meszaros
    Babchuk
    Pietrangelo
    Hamhuis
    Carle
    Lydman
    Aucoin
    Fowler

    I was thinking either Bieksa, Wideman, Carle or Fowler. Wideman is questionable because of his +/- which is a big reason for dropping Gonchar, but he may be the better choice overall...

    thoughts?

    • I'd say Bieksa or Wideman, depending on what stats you need..

      Wideman's been very hot lately, only question is whether he will sustain with the never ending rebuild continuing in FL this season.

      Bieksa is solid in ever category but PPP, with both Edler and Hamhuis out though he is likely to see some time on thatt deadly VAN powerplay

      Carle is strong on the +/- but not a ton of value otherwise with that stacked D in PHI.

      Fowler is Wideman, w/ less PIMs and PPG, also only 20yrs so fatigue could be an issue.

    • Fowler
