I dont know what your opinion is but I still see Purinton as a liability if hes being anything but a 6th or 7th D-man..... If there were one or two significant injuries then Id have Tyutin back from Hartford before you could say Purinton is slow.
I also dissagree with Fletch... Tyutin played very well down low and didnt have any trouble with the puck.
