I don't know how we could justify starting Tinordi in Hamilton now. I totally agreed with that as the default plan, circa a few weeks ago, mind you. Sign a bigger stay-at-home D as a UFA, and just call up Tinordi whenever we needed somebody to step in, sort of like this year. But now... he really does seem to have stepped up his game to meet the needs for playing regularly in the NHL, don't you think? We have 6 other guys signed, and Tinordi. I think that makes it pretty unlikely that we seek out another D on the UFA market now, I think we already have our 7.
