Woywitka has played well enough in an extremely limited role--less than 11 minutes of ice tme a night on average. But, if there is someone in the organization who can play better, play more minutes and be part of the long term picture, I'm all for Woywitka sitting.
I hope Erixon gets a game or two in--Strålman seems to be getting his legs and playing more consistantly, so I don't think that pairing would be a disaster. Having another defenseman who has Tortorella's confidence to play 15 minutes a night would help keep the top 4 a little fresher.
