I disagree with us not having a spot for him on our current D squad. We could have used an alternate system, with Bouillon or even Emelin being scratched.
And the very worst, we could have scratched Armstrong and dressed 7 Dman. At least we could have two actual defensive pairing on the PP that way with Markov-Diaz-PK-Weber. No need for Bouillon or Gorges to play on the PP where they absolutely suck.
I think keeping a young prospect that will be part of the NHL in the press box is just stupid.
I'm not saying he should have a regular spot. But there's no reason for him to just have played 1 game at this point.
Interesting point, actually. Given that Colby has had his 20 games and has proved ZERO, perhaps having Weber on the fourth line RW, being good defensively with some limited offence as well, would be an upgrade.
