If there is a lockout all three eligible d-men go down.

In reality, this creates a "problem" in Springfield. they'll have to send a few to Evansville if this were to be the case.

I think Moore, Savard and Erixon are all very close. I wonder if Erixon doesn't have an advantage over a guy like Savard for two reasons. 1) His skating and 2 way game appear to be ahead of Savard and 2) Playing the Rangers system he may have bee kept down because they had a pretty solid blue line in NYC. Why have him sit as the 7th.

Erixon has the most upside of the three in my opinion but that doesn't mean he's ready. Moore played in the NHL last year and I think the #6 spot is his to lose. If you don't plan for regular play for the 7th guy, don't keep whoever of the three doesn't make the top 6 in Columbus. Play a guy like Holden at #7 or sign a cheap vet. camp tryout?
