Disagree on Woywitka. I can count (2) 'rookie' mistakes all season. Serviceable 3rd pairing guy who's done well with his 10 minutes. The roles that you're looking for he and Erixon to fill are not interchangeable.
As for Wolski, if you WANT to put him in the lineup without an injury, Hagelin could be the odd man out as the only waiver exempt forward. Not advocating it, just saying.
