-Regehr / Leopold as an offense/defense pairing.

Ehrhoff, Myers, and Sekera should get PP time, maybe Sulzer or Leopold depending on if Ruff continues to use Pominville on the point.

I could live with moving Leopold in a deal for a 3C. In that case, Weber and Pardy battle for #6/7. I don't like Weber in the #6 role - he's more of a #7.

I like McNabb starting in Rochester and playing big minutes, then coming to Buffalo based on the situation in Buffalo and McNabb's readiness level.
Totally agree with those lines.
