Nothing wrong with that pairing, other than the fact that they haven't seen a second of ice time.
I'd ideally put Bouwmeester below Karlsson and on the second pairing, mind you.
And regarding Wiercioch; if we bring him in as the exclusive solution to our blueline problems, we're likely throwing away a season. He'll be good, but it will take time. I think we have the forward depth and the goaltending to make the playoffs. I don't want defense to be the weak link when we have a surplus of futures waiting to be cashed in trade-wise. It's obvious that a move needs to be made.
