For a large portion of last season he was one half of our most effective pairing which featured Klesla on the other side. That same pairing might now be our third behind OEL-Michalek and Yandle-Morris. Point is, he had some good chemistry with Klesla and that pair really worked well. I think we'd like to keep it. Maloney and Tippett have stated they'd like to keep eight D up to start the abbreviated season. Stone and Rundblad are the only two others up. I think we've got our eight.

I'd prefer to let Schlemko play, show the pro scouts that he's for real, wait for some team thin on D to lose a guy with injury and make a desperation offer. With Schlemko the value is only going to improve. Then again, if I'm wrong and it doesn't improve we have missed out on what? A 4th round pick? I will risk losing out in an extra one of those. No problem.
