Sometimes when making line combinations, you place a player on ther second unit simply because of chemistry. Its like Detroit having lilja with Lidstrom a few years ago. Was he a 1st pairing guy? absolutely not. But 5on5 thats where its best for him. Hainsey and Enstrom will be basically the 1-2 punch for the thrashers next year. Hainsey 5on5 will simply be better off with the second defensive unit with a Stay at home defenseman. He will probably also see the 1-2 most minutes on the blueline.
Great williams signing too guys. Jwill was liked by some in Detroit and we all see him as a very underrated offensively gifted forward who just needs to break out. He should not disappoint.
