It would also make sense to get as many Checkers in the lineup early to take advantage of the fact they are all in game shape.

I don't think you see JR move a defenseman just so Sanguinetti has a spot. That would be moronic.
Yeah that's what I'm thinking. Nodl's going to be gone via trade. Stewart gone via waivers. Dwyer actually has the ability to play a 3rd line role from time to time so we'll probably keep him around. Otherwise this is all making room for guys with more toughness like Brett Sutter, Wallace, and Blanchard who was a strong candidate for a late season callup last year had the Checkers been in better playoff position.
