If this doesn't work, there's really not another option, which is why I'm harping on this. It's a very real possibility that we could be using Hannan or Klein on the first pair this season.
I don't disagree with you. With the exception of Tootoo when has Trotz not benched young players for one reason or another or played checkers with where they play. Im really high on Josi and think hes going to be screwed if forced to develop on the 1st paring. It just does not make sense, this treatment makes him look like he is better than Weber and Suter at this point. He may well be in the long run better than both we do not know, chances are hes not. Can the guy stand the pressure thats going to be placed on him or will he show holes in his game like Blum and be downgraded by the staff. And is Ellis next? Who will be Trotz Whipping boy on D this year? In the past there has been Zids, Hammer, Klein, ect ect ect. Will it be Weber, Hannan, Gill, doubtful trotz tends to dismiss problems any veteran has. The good news we will know after the first road trip. In two weeks check back to this thread and see where it gos. If josi has problems he will be boiled in oil there will be those calling for his head or a trade to Philly both of which are brutal.
