Okay, so you add Walker, maybe Rinaldo; guys who you can't screw up by making them sit for a while. That takes care of another 2.00m.
Now you're going to really hang onto guys like Wellwood, Sestito, Holmstrom, Read, Gustafsson, Marshall, and possibly Couturier just because you can?
No, you want those guys in the AHL and Couturier in the QMJHL if they're not rolling in every single night.
I understand what you're saying, but we run out of guys who we can afford to sit for long periods at a time if we're planning on a 28-man roster.
