When Lovejoy was a prospect battling for a roster spot he looked like a fairly maintaneceable 5-6 dman. But now with our defensive pool I agree with this, he is a hurdle we do not need that defensive prospects with a much higher ceiling need to jump in order to get a pro spot. Need to just waive him, if he gets picked off good for him, he maintains a NHL spot. If not he can play in WBS and give some veteran leadership to any young dman that are also there.
