Cumiskey is for depth on d. We don't know if/when tvr will get hurt or any other d man. We know what we have in him. And no one in the pipeline to step up.. Unless Erhof signs for 1.75 no need to look elsewhere.
Still, you can sign a vet dman for 1.75, keep versteeg and get rid of nordstrom and pay kruger 250k less and you have space (like 50k leftover). That puts rundblad as the 7th d and keeps the starting 6 good.
