So yeah, Sbisa is going to be playing a lot of hockey early on.
Who does Holmgren expect to get that would make it worth while for the other team to take someone from our farm we don't need.
We had the answer to this problem in training camp, and is the simplest answer and don't have to give up a real asset, who knows, maybe that's what he's trying to do.
Whatever happens is eventually going to create a log jam on defense when Parent, Jones and Hatcher all come back, along with this mystery defenseman.
