Wellwood and Holmstrom looked OK in the few games they played. Gustaffson didnt look that great and still needs more time in the AHL. And Marshall? REALLY? Marshall hasnt even stepped a foot in the NHL and you already have him paired up with Pronger? He hasnt even impressed with the Phantoms

Just because it works cap wise, doesnt mean we should do it
Then put shelley where Holmstrom is. I only put Marshall with Pronger because I feel he is our most NHL ready Dman in the AHL and Pronger can make almost anyone look good.

I dont see how this lineup works, of those call ups to fill out the roster I only had 3 of them in the lineup, it would be 2 if you drop Holmstrom to the bench for Shelley. I feel this lineup is a hell of a lot better and more realistic than most of what we have seen posted. Our young D men need to make the transition some time.
