Just my 2 cents.
i wondered about that, too, though i wasn't sure of everybody's handedness. definitely a possibility, though. but even still, putting a less-skilled player on the first pairing just because he's right-handed seems a little crazy. or at least, i would think...

JJ would like take DD's spot and AM JJ's leaving VV and co to fill AM's. Then whomever is the "stay at home" person in each of the pairings would be whomever they would have been prior to DD not being available.
Think of it as an injury the loss of DD for the time being, we would want to give a couple of different kids a look at how and where they fit on the teams blue line for as long as they were needed to do so.
yes, exactly. that's what i'm thinking will happen. johnson will bump up to the first pairing, and so on and so forth. but i've been seeing a lot of posts that seem to suggest otherwise, with "best fit" meaning not johnson (arguably the next in line in terms of skill and experience and offensive ability), but rather someone like voynov (someone who supposedly matches DD's style of play more). so i was just wondering what the thinking there was, because it seems to me that it should be johnson paired up with mitchell, not VV TH or JM.
