Explain why hoffman took the warmup wednesday and not stone, then?
More familiar with the system given he was called up and played earlier in the year. Stone hasn't had much time to practice PM's game. Now that he will get a full practice in today and a practice tomorrow he'll have had more exposure to the system and feel somewhat more comfortable than he would have on Wednesday.

Personally I'm all for Stone playing tomorrow. The kid has hands, he's physically ready for the show, and he reminds me so much of Dany Heatley (sans the attitude). Some players transition from junior to NHL with no problems and some it takes 2 or 3 years. Just because Stone hasn't played professionally doesn't mean he can't. Look at Cowen last year. He stepped right into Bingo from junior and was one of their best dman. Better than players who had been playing there all year. I'm not saying Stone is going to transition into a leader for the Sens, but I think he will have as good as or better an impact than Hoffman. But we'll see tomorrow what happens of course.
