The team, based on past comments, views McD and Erixon as top-4 guys with first pair potential. That, combined with Erixon's history of playing either side, makes this the most ideal 2nd pair.
Del Zotto needs a defensive rock next to him to get his game back. Sauer provides that. DZ and Sauer will get their minutes on special teams (PP for DZ and PK for Sauer), but they just make sense as the 3rd pair.
Plug in Valentenko or Eminger as the #7 defenseman, and this is exactly what I think we see.
