Fairchild isn't going to be anchoring the left side anytime soon. He isn't NHL ready, as he has only played in emergencies and in sheltered situations. He is a promising prospect, but that is all he is right now. Cole has shown he can play significant minutes. I'm not saying Cole is ready for 1st pairing minutes, but is more ready than Fairchild. Fairchild averaged 9:39 in ice time in his 5 game taste of the NHL, so why is everyone putting him above Cole?
