Best case scenario- Huskins comes in and makes our 3rd pairing not suck, the PK gets better, and then E builds off of last season and becomes a legit top 4 stay-at-home guy.

And I'd like to see the PK batting average creep above .500 if at all possible.
Oh, I think Lashoff looked right at home, though a little timid due to not wanting to make any major mistakes. Yeah, he was out there for the 2 PP goals against, but you can't expect a guy to be stone-cold perfect his first game out, and otherwise he did better than I expected.

It would have to either get REALLY bad, or have them on the verge of missing the playoffs. I think he'd probably get more of a shot in Grand Rapids since they'll likely be headed to the Playoffs.
