While that does play to some extent, I've always believed that the best players should be in the lineup, regardless of which hand they shoot with. Just my personal opinion ... I think the bigger picture is key here, with guys like Goloubef and Erixon being younger, higher upside options. It makes (some) sense for the franchise to put more stock into those players than, say, Holden, who is a bottom-3 guy in the NHL, regardless of any further development.
Holden may be a prime trade piece this offseason. Guys like Mike Kostka and Kevin Bieksa have developed in much the same fashion, and he could still have a bright career ahead of him.
