But Harrold hasn't even played in a single game, and he's pretty good. I know that there might be injuries, but do we really not have decent enough guys that we could call up from Albany (Urbom/Gelinas) to fill in if there happened to be multiple injuries? I've seen you say this a couple of times now and I still don't understand why we would think having 8 NHL defensemen is a good idea.
Me either. I don't understand the purpose of having Tallinder and Harrold. You only need one experienced #7 and then a couple young guys to call up in case of multiple injuries. Urbom looked passable in his last NHL game and it's been a solid year since then, what's the problem giving him 5-10 games this year? Or Gelinas, who we've yet to really see up here. I wouldn't mind giving either of them a game over Tallinder or Harrold at this point. I'd just rather make a trade first.
Victor Rask? Very boom or bust though.
Lou isn't trading for a non roster player at this point. That's what the Loki trade was. That way him and JJ can compete for an NHL spot. If we trade a D, it will be for a NHL player.
