I thought the whole defence looked off last game without the Edler-Ehrhoff pairing. IMO the defence top to bottom last game should have been:

Edler-Ehrhoff
Hamhuis-Rome
Alberts-Bieksa

I've been impressed by Alberts-Bieksa as a bottom pairing. This game, slot in Ballard for Rome and you have:

Edler-Ehrhoff
Hamhuis-Ballard
Alberts-Bieksa

Three pairings you feel comfortable with. If you're worried, sit one of the 4th liners and have Rome as an emergency fill-in in case Ballard can't handle the minutes or Alberts has one of those games.

On the other side of things, anyone think AV will push Samuelsson up with the Sedins again? I haven't loved his fit this season, but the energy and speed of Burrows, Kesler and Raymond looked impressive in the 3rd period in Buffalo.
