Even if his defense isn't quite up to snuff yet, the Blues could at least use him as a bottom-pairing PP guy and help him improve his defense along the way.
It is going to boil down to having the right vet to pair up with Junland. He plays the same side as Brewer, Jackman and Cola. So on the other side we have EJ(maybe) Weaver(good choice) Polak(good choice) or Pietrangelo(potentially bad choice). It makes it real tough to insert a guy that probably does deserve a shot into an already inexperienced roster. There are just so many scenarios in there that can change the situation for him.
