I still think Woywitka sits over anyone else though.
I am going to have to respectfully disagree here. MDZ was very confident on the offense against the Islanders. I understood when to jump up into the play, and when to stay back. He also had a couple of quality shots and another one or two quality chances. I have been very happy with MDZ so far this year. I don't worry defensively as much when he's out on the ice because he's been that solid for us already.

I think that the telling sign to the d-men's status on the team is where they're playing. MDZ and Erixon both started on the 3rd pair and were moved up to the second pair. Eminger easily could have taken one of those spots, so that means Torts is happy with those two. He is also feeding them quite a bit of ice time instead of spreading out the remaining ice time amongst the final two pairs.
