Current defensive pairings:

Tyutin - Nikitin
Methot - Moore (rookie)
Johnson - Savard (rookie)

Clitsome has been a scratch since Richards took over.
There was an announcement yesterday that Martinek is done for the year (he only played 7 games all season before the concussion).

With the Lebda signing, that gives us 8 guys at the NHL level. Are they going to send Savard back down? Is someone else going to be traded? The next home game is on 2/7 (All-Star break in there though). Do they want 8 guys on the road trip?

Unless Savard is headed back down, I think there is something else in the works, teams usually don't carry 8 defensemen for very long.

(If we ignore his time in Toronto, we could just pretend that this was a Commodore for Lebda swap. )

Things will probably get worse for the CBJ before they get better anyway. Most likely Prospal and Pahlsson will get moved (don't know about Huselius - he's been hurt almost all season but a UFA).
