Kuba needs to play because there's a 2% chance he develops value if he plays, but a 0% chance he develops value if he sits.
Paul MacLean (and Bryan Murray) haven't sat Brian Lee because he's the worst Dman available to them....they've sat him because their hands are tied and they need some questions answered.
Why sit one of the two best defencemen out of training camp??? Cowen and Lee both deserve to start the year, not to do that sends an awful message and has the potential to do more harm than good.
If the supposition about Kuba or Rundblad is close to right, then the Sens should be looking at sitting one of Phillips, Gonchar or Karlsson.
