When Brunner gets back: 9 D, six spots
Sal, Volch, Gelinas, Fanye, Greene, Zidlicky, Larsson, Merill, Harrold
Send Harry down, sit one of Sal/Volch, rotating door between Gelinas, Merill and Fanye.
Really need to trade one of these guys.
The D logjam in the entire organization is insane. Going by current assignments:
NHL (8): Volchenkov, Salvador, Greene, Zidlicky, Fayne, Merrill, Harrold, Gelinas
AHL (9): Larsson, Urbom, Helgeson, Burlon, Hrabarenka, Scarlett, McPherson, Kelly, Young
Albany's all healthy and been using 7 D with Young as the scratch (as he should be, or just ECHL him) and Hrabarenka, Burlon, and Urbom as a rotating scratch. Shame it's cutting into Hrabarenka's time since he's been doing well since his promotion to the AHL.
