Keeping all eight defensemen has been a net negative from the start though, they really need to trade off one of those guys before we damage Fayne and Larsson's future anymore. The eight D rotation hasn't really helped anyone, except two of the three guys who've avoided it (Greene, Zidlicky).
absolutely. Salvador also avoided it... the only games he missed was because of injuries.
To keep all those 8 dmen was comparable to keep an extra guy in 2010 and there was that black cloud on top of the locker room for the longest time cause the players knew someone would get shipped somewhere. Lou admitted himself that it was a mistake.
The young guys knows that if they play a bad game they are out next game.
edit: plus we didnt see any difference in the team play with any dmen out. im 110% convinced that we wouldnt be a worst team with
and whoever we could call up from the AHL to give them experience and patch holes.
A-Train and Volchenkov are useless to me and pretty expensive for what they bring.
