Mikkelson has no option but to perform or get moved. With young defensman eager to take his position he will be given time on the bottom pairing to prove his worth. Lee and Salo will be with Mikkelson on this bottom pairing with MAB and Auile jumping in and out of the line-up. I dont think we will play the 7th dman to often this season, so I see MAB being shopped around.
Just out of curiosity, what makes you think they won't use the 7th d very much? Boucher loves to run with 7. It's true we have a lot more forward depth now, but I still think he'll go 11/7, mostly to keep MAB in for PP duty.
