Yes, that was the case. DZ can for sure play the right side. He has the skill set to do so and do it very well. I would absolutely love to see this in the future:
This season, I can see them getting another LD to fill in on the 3rd pairing with Sauer and form a pairing that can play shutdown D as well as kill penalties and provide rest for Girardi and McDonagh down the stretch. Also, after the powerplay, which DZ and Girardi-McDonagh play on, you can pair Staal and Sauer together the shift after.
This is a great issue to have if you want to refer to it that way. When healthy, our D is the best in the league this season, easily.
