Well in the post your responding to, I was saying that there shouldn't be two rookies on the bottom pair because you were saying how little they would play.

But overall, 2nd year players have a tendency to regress, Erixon is a rookie, and Del Zotto is a trainwreck. All of those players could use another experienced dman back there that they can lean on.
