I think we see Staal move to the 2nd pairing. His minutes played has seen a steady rise which pairs him with MDZ. That makes a very nice top 4.

I think Stralman brings the PP stick skills NY needs, and his willingness to take the body as well as being hit to make the outlet pass keeps him in the lineup. Coach asked him to do that and Anton responded.

Bickel, Eminger, Woy are the backfill

I don't think it helps Erixon's "development" to play 10 minutes a night in the show, when he can see some serious time in the AHL.

Then again the trade deadline is coming and who knows what if anything Slats has brewing

Sauer is missed, at least I miss the guys game. He brought additional sandpaper in clearing the crease and sticking a glove in someones mush when they skate to the crease. Hopefully he can return this season, but if not hopefully next year will give him a new lease on life as I believe he is a core player for NY.
