What would you guys like to see?
Redden-Staal: Definitely. Allows Roszival to play on the 2nd pairing where he should excel. Redden with Staal should be a dynamite pairing; Staal is not your typical shut-down defenseman as he likes to rush the puck (and is good at it), but he is defensively solid. I think Redden can help bring Staal's game to the next level.
Roszival-Tyutin/Girardi: Believe it or not, Tyutin and Girardi can still play solid hockey without being by one another's side.
Tyutin/Girardi-Backman: As of now, this is it, but here's to hoping Backman is out the door.
