I was responding to the post jlsg had where he said some teams would love a combo of Bartley-Ellis-Ekholm on the second pair. Any combo of those players used in a second pairing role would get demolished. That's what I was saying. I agree our second pairing will likely be fine but I wouldn't bet the house on it considering it looks like one of Jones,Ellis,Ekholm or Bartley will be playing those minutes. Sure they might be capable and I'd bet on one of those 4 players stepping up and putting on their big boy pants as you put it but all of those players are extremely green and could struggle.
