No need to start off as a 7th if you've got the goods to play on a regular pairing.

Little playing time? look at Gilroy's season, he got plenty of playing time this season. There will be injuries, healthy scratches, maybe suspensions. Pashnin as a 7th defenseman would play more games than he usually plays in KHL.
