Wouldn't that be a better option then having a goon ride the pine for 55 minutes of a 60 minute game? Give Larsson Volchenkov's 5vs5 shifts and I honestly think we'd be a way better team then a goon on our 4th and #28 playing 5vs5. Maybe Lou's showcasing Janssen, you never know

Just my 2 cents.
That's what I would do. We essentially play like we dress 7 d men anyway with the lack of minutes Janssen and Barch get. Why not have an extra d man? Have Larsson take some even strength shifts from Zids and Volch and even give Larsson some pp time to help Kovy get some rest from double shifting the whole game. It makes so much sense I don't see why we aren't doing it. How exactly will Janssen, Barch, or Anderson be helping us more than what I just outlined? It gives us the ability to sit a d man who's having a bad game as well. How are we not doing this? It's idiotic.
