That being said, I refuse to believe that Spector is correct and that this is a possibility.
yup, as we suspected: (from Spector's blog today)
WHITE ALL OVER: For the second straight day, Todd White spent time skating as a defenseman, which he said was “fun,” but not a sign of a position switch. With seven defensemen on the roster, someone had to be the eighth for the drills at the end of practice.
“We’re doing some scrimmaging, trying to do some 4-on-4 scrimmaging and 5-on-5, and he’s offered himself to do that,” Tortorella said. “He’s a great guy. We knew he was, and he understands where he is with this team right now, and has never complained once. He’s just going to wait for his chance, and I’m sure he’s going to seize that, when he does get that opportunity.”
