I really wanted them to draft Coyle, who also would've been nice, but Pysyk is better than I realized.
Force-feeding him Top 4 minutes is a recipe for disaster, IMO. The team tried to do that with Butler post Tallinder/Lydman and it wasn't pretty. I think playing him on the bottom pair with a likely re-signed Weber would be ideal; let's him get easy minutes and a stable vet presence to play with.
