If OD isn't ready to go in the next game, and Bartulis isn't... and neither are guys we want to put on LTIR with their respective injuries, then we only have 5 D we can dress, and not a lot of cap room. On top of that Betts and Shelley may be out for the next game.

Looking ahead, we needed to shed someone ASAP in order to avoid as much of a cap penalty as possible heading into next year.
