I don't get why being a #7 defenseman automatically means you're in the pressbox to some people. There's nothing wrong with dressing 11 forwards and 7 defensemen. I personally would rather see us dress Voinov than Moreau. Moreau is good for 5 minutes a game in special situations. Voinov can play 15 minutes and play on either of the bottom two pairings as well as on the PP. At this point, I'd rather see A-Mart and Voinov playing 15-17 minutes a game in most situations in the NHL then seeing one in the AHL and Moreau/Westgarth/Parse/Fraser in as a depth forward on the Kings.

Also, having Voinov sitting in the press box 10-20 games a year won't kill him. He'll still be playing a fair amount and practicing with the NHL team all year.
