I am in the same boat. I think Bartulis had shown some great progress, but the playoffs where obviously a bit too much for him to handle.
I think he needs a full season of at least being the 7th Dman. Having him sit in a press box for 80% of the season is only going to make him regress.
I just don't see Homer dumping Walker. He traded for him and believes you cannot have enough defense, so Walker will at least get a chance to play. He needs Walker to try and redeem him as much as possible for the Gagne trade.
Unless Betts isn't cleared to play before the season starts and goes on IR, then it is going to be either Carcillo, Powe or Bartulis that is forced off this team.
Let us just hope Bartulis is waiver exempt, and at least he gets some ice time in the AHL.
