Sit Carlson, he needs to know what it's like to watch the game from the press box. Sit Schultz if Poti's a go. Go with the following:

Alzner - Green
Erskine - Poti/Schultz
Hamrlik - Kundratek
Hamrlik is no longer part of this team. The only reason he played the other night is because Oates couldn't find someone short notice off of the street when Poti decided against facing the Penguins.

So in essence Hamrlik went from having a stellar playoff series while paired with Green. He was high man + / - by three and was sixth in even strength points. And actually led d-men in even strength points. So that performance earns a seat on the bench with no real chance.
