13-15 minutes a night would be fine for their development. There's always special teams too.

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.
Don't agree that MDZ is a trainwreck..... However, consider some of the 'experienced' players we have utilized on our 3rd pairing since the lockout:

Strudwick
Mara
Kalinin
Backman
Ozolinsh

Looking at what we've gone with in the past, I'm perfectly fine with going with these younger players. Signing any veteran player other than Eminger would be a mistake, because we have too much defensive depth to only allow for 1 opening for a young player.
