How did we roll Upshall-Briere-Giroux as a line then? We had enough room for Briere, he played multiple games before Upshall was traded. The problem was when Timonen got the flu and we needed a callup
Kinda sad that Wellwood wasn't called up instead. But still great to see young ones get a chance at the NHL level.
Size thing probably.
