I would hope that Abbott doesn't get a spot handed to him ahead of McKegg and D'Amigo, though.
Fraser-Holzer will be the defense pairing that plays the most minutes, like last year. Holzer will likely see slightly reduced duties, but Eakins loves him and knows that he's the most steady, reliable defenseman on the team. He was playing upwards of 25 minutes a game last season, though we should see a reduction with all of the depth. Gardiner, Holzer, Ranger and Kostka will almost certainly see lots of PP time at the point with Holzer, Fraser, Ranger and Gardiner seeing tons of PK time as well.
