I agree with whiskey about sitting Ellerby for DD44

we were outmatched in front of the net with tips, and i believe Davis has the edge positionally and smarts when it comes to the stay at home aspect of D. With Greene and Mitchell out, and Sutter losing confidence in Drew Doughty in PK situations, it's important to have Drewiske holding down the fort on the PK.

I'm fine with letting Muzzin get comfortable and get some minutes, he's contributing and the positives outweight the negatives in my opinion. Right now Ellerby still doesn't seem confident and we NEED front of the net help bad. St. Louis exposed that so we need someone who's more ept at taking care of the front of the net.

Part of the reason why i think Bernier has been outplaying Quick this year is to the fact that we don't have greene or mitchell cleaning up the mess in front. Bernier's style is more economical and safe, and requires less of his D-men to clean up after him. Quick plays a high risk style and that works if you have D-studs like Greene and Mitchell in front of him.
