as for skating, I have to wonder how much stock EDM puts into it for their D, I mean, they signed Cory Cross to a 3 year deal. I get what you're saying, that no one wants too many of these guys. But Luoma's more polished, Bergeron likely won't be hurt by being the #1 in TOR for 20 games or so, I'm sure they'd like to see what Luoma can do at the NHL level.
There is also the possibility that they simply go 13 F and 8D for awhile, and send both Sarno and Wright down.
Yes. My personal preference is Luoma over Bergeron (and Rita to make the team) but I just get this feeling Rita's back down and they'll give Bergeron a big time shot at it.
Wish they still has Pisa.
