What happens when Weber returns?
 
Whenever Weber returns, who does everyone feel will be kept between Klein and Koistinen? Or do we keep them both until Sullivan returns (assuming he does..)?

Obviously the coaching staff isn't that happy with Klein's game. I still think he's going to be a good NHL defensemen. He hasn't had much of a chance with our organization. Perhaps a change of scenery is needed. But his trade value might be lower right now.

Klein will most likely be sent on a two-week conditioning assignment and Koistinen will rotate out of the lineup as the 7th defenseman. After the conditioning assignment is up, then we will most likely see Klein and Koistinen rotate through the lineup until there is an injury or a player gets yanked out due to poor play.

I don't suspect we will see Poile eager to trade any of our defensive depth right now unless his hand is totally forced.

I just don't know. Trotz does this with young players, year after year after year. He won't play unless our hand is forced.

What do we think will happen; or what do we want to see happen? I think we see the beginnings of what will happen. Klein's conditioning assignment and next will be Koistinen moving to the 7th Dman and scratched. I think most pred fans would rather see something happen with DeVries but it won't.

What is the situation regarding reassigning Klein or Koistinen to the Admirals? Would they need to clear waivers?

sit deVries and cut Ville's TOI

Yes.

I think we'll run 8 dmen for a while. I always thought Koistinen would be gone, but he's playing so well. And getting rid of Klein would hurt in the size department. I wonder why Klein is in Trotz' doghouse?

Perhaps part of the master plan to build up Ville to trade him instead? Nahhhh. I think Klein is gone, sorry to say.

Shea Weber puts Paul Kariya through the glass is what happens when Shea comes back

I don't think so. Perhaps they will hold on for several weeks with 8 guys to see if an injury hits and then trade him to the Sabres or Caps for a 3rd or 4th round pick
