Fairchild averaged 9:39 in ice time in his 5 game taste of the NHL, so why is everyone putting him above Cole?
No, Fairchild is not going to be anchoring any left side anytime soon. There's only one member on this board who sarcastically put Fairchild above Cole and it wasn't me.

What I wrote was that Cole and Fairchild could anchor the left side until some help arrives. Certainly Fairchild is not ready. I believe I wrote that post really late one night after a really fun party, the same night I wrote that the Blues should re-sign Reaves when he's already re-signed. Obviously too much partying affects the brain when posting late at night cuz I posted all kinds of stuff that made no sense.

And then one member here decided to slew foot me down to the ice and then step on my throat with his skate.
