Laakso

I was hoping some playing time would help him settle in but he looks terrible. Much worse than Sulzer looked as the 7th d-man. He is down in Ekholm territory (not knocking Ek, he just needs time and experience I think).

Last night, when he shot the puck over the glass for a penalty and they showed Trotz, coach looked like he had gone to bemused resignation... not angry, just accepting the things he can't change. Maybe I'm reading too much into it but I think he deems Laakso a lost cause.

Do we see a move to bring someone up or do we just ride it out until KK returns?

Josi is still injured so there goes our best option. Sloan has experience, Ellis has offensive upside but that's not the problem. Any other good options?

Thoughts?
