I don't see a huge problem with that. I don't think the name of our shoe-in 6th defenseman makes too much difference. Martin might even know something we don't. But generally speaking, I'll try to believe that Spacek's place on the depth chart... which *would* include a trial waiving and start in Hamilton if he was really #9... would be based on merit. A regular shift for youngsters would be nice - if they can handle it - but I don't see them being broken without it.
