What Hurricane Anton is saying is that we needed roster spots to be able to call up Nash and Welsh. Placing Gleason and Pitkanen on IR allowed for those two roster spots to be available to be filled by the Checkers players. If we want to call up another player for the defense (Murphy), Skinner's injured and can be placed on IR to open up a roster spot.


It doesn't matter what positions these guys play, it's the roster spots that matter.
