That's what word out of the front office has been.



RE: Scandella

People need to remember he wasn't supposed to be on the team at all this year. He was supposed to start the year in Houston, and only stayed in St. Paul because his play was too good to be sent down. He suffered a concussion, then fumbled a bit in his return and lost his confidence.

The Scandella that started this season would not be a liability on the top pairing. If he can find that form again (and he should be able to as it's a mental issue, not a physical one) I have no problem with putting him on a top pairing.

I like the concept of Brodin paired with Schultz, but I feel that would probably end up looking like the disastrous Schultz-Lundin pairing from earlier this year. I think that Brodin's game complements Scandella's far better than it does Schultz's, and that they'd make a more compatible pairing.
