And while we're at it.. why bring Calle out of retirment if he was going to become your 9th dman on the depth charts? Time for Pat to go.
You must put th eline-up you think is best to WIN the game. No sentimentality can be factored into the equation. You lose you go home for the SEASON.

Francis had done nothing in the series against the Flyers, Reichel never should have been a scratch. Playing Belak is the only issue.
