Of course they could pencil in Gus or Bourdon as the Nr.5/6 from the beginning but in fact we all know injuries will happen - just think about Timonen and Meszaros both recovering from back surgery, or Grossman's knees. And for now you can't trust Bourdon nor Gus in a Nr3/4 role...at least I'm not convinced.
nothing wrong with having ready young dmen in the AHL. Thats not what I was getting at. its signing bums like Lilja instead of giving one of the kids a shot.
