If not now, when does Fraser get a chance? He'll get this game and a few more before they decide to keep him around or not.
If he doesn't work out, like you said, Loktionov is a phone call away.
Besides, Richards and Gagne were 'outsiders' too before this season, and Fraser has a Cup ring on both of them. Different roles, for sure, but don't discount his value.
I also like the idea of giving Clifford more minutes right now. Hopefully that sparks his game.
