We have Oleksiak and Nemeth ready for a call up only 3.5 hours away so I think we are a little thicker than cheesecloth
Not at all. I've been an advocate for Dillon playing in the top 4 all offseason.

You always err on the side of more depth on defense. Always. It's great to give Dillon the chance and it's exactly what I'd do. But you also have a backup plan in place in case he falters. Jordie Benn is not a backup plan. Aaron Rome playing in your top 4 is not a backup plan. Rushing your high-ceiling prospects is not a backup plan.
