This got me thinking....

Schneider - Gorges is our 2nd Pairing

Let me explain.

- Schneider can handle 2nd pairing minutes (its the 1st minutes that were insane)

- Schneider is a good puck moving d-man, and Gorges has proven he could be a #4 with a good partner.

- This is probably the best argument. Leaves Hamrlik with O'Byrne as our real 3rd line, playing vs the easiest competition. why... because O'Byrne is still the weakest link. And the weakest link, must go as far away from the other team's best forwards as possible
