I think probably the best reason for holding onto Leopold until McNabb is ready is that it keeps Weber off the ice. He and Regehr in the same lineup scares me...
Sekera cheated up and got caught, leaving Regehr alone to catch up with Matt Read. I would clarify what you said to have Regehr paired with a safer d-man that won't take chances, rather than being fast. But Ruff's system puts d-men in a constant state of deciding whether to pinch, so I'm not sure anyone would qualify. FWIW I would like this set-up best...

Regehr-Leopold (they paired together in Calgary years back)
