<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>sensibleguy</b></div><div>Sanderson is likely to only spend one season at UND, which is best case scenario. He's not NHL ready, so he needs at least a few months in the AHL, best case scenario, longer possibly. After he does make it to the NHL, it will be a season and a half before he's really a stable enough NHL defenceman to play on the 2nd pair minutes, which puts his 2nd pair timeline at about TDL 22/23, or opening day 23/24. That's two seasons away, and someone needs to play 2nd pair minutes, compently, until then.

I don't mind getting a Marcus Pettersson, and have him push Sanderson to take the 2nd pair spot away, and still be around during Sanderson's ELC contract. If Sanderson signs this offseason, then they can have a higher cap hit defenceman that's signed through 23/24, the third year of Sanderson's ELC, again, if he signs this offseason.

Pettersson is signed through 24/25, which means one of Chabot or Pettersson gets traded at the 23/24 TDL.

There's a chance Dorion trades for Vince Dunn, because they aren't very good at professional scouting, so unfortunately it's possible. If they pull it off, Dunn will be coming in hot...</div></div>

So even if Sanderson takes until 2022-23 to be ready for top 4 minutes on the left side, Braanstrom should be ready by then and Wolanin is good for bottom pairing minutes. Sign another vet for a bit of depth (keep Coburn even) and should be fine. Keeping the 2nd is more important for the Sens going forward so....that means Dunn will be a Sen very soon #assetmanagement
