If healthy, Pekka will get 65+ starts...
I've said this before, as well. Dekanich and Lindback will both split time in Milwaukee, where they will subsequently split time with Pickard, but a healthy Rinne means they'll each see about eight NHL starts apiece, maybe even less than that.
That said, this sort of rotation cannot go on for more than one season. It's bad for the development of Dekanich and Lindback, plus we have Smith stuffed down the pipeline in Cincinnati who is deserving of a crack at the AHL. Something has to give somewhere. I think it'll be Dex, personally.
