Don't get me wrong, I'll be more than happy to eat a nice roasted crow for dinner if he proves me wrong, but until I see his game progress over a longer stretch of games...
I honestly think we're in an awesome position where we can literally roll all three pairings out fairly evenly at even strength.
I think that will save some tread on the tires for Timonen and Streit as well.
We have a unique opportunity here this upcoming season with the defense we've assembled. It's not every day that we can theoretically throw all three pairings out to log significant minutes.
Let's not waste it by being skittish with Gustafsson. There's no reason for it.
