December 18, 2003 Activated defenseman Teppo Numminen and right wing Aaron Downey from injured reserve;

This marked the first time the Stars Defense was 100% healthy since they aquired Jon Klemm, since than.........
Dec. 19th vs. FLA - Erskine a healthy scratch
Dec. 20th vs Tampa - Erskine a healthy scratch
Dec. 22nd vs.CAR - Erskine a healthy scratch
Dec. 26th vs Nash - Erskine a healthy scratch
Dec. 27th vs Clb - Erskine dressed, but Dallas went with 7 Defenseman
Dec. 29th vs. Philly - Erskine a healthy scratch.

Also during this stretch of games Erskine told the Dallas mourning news that he was upset about being scratched....... and so he should be, Erskine has paid his dues and is capable of being an everyday NHL defenseman. Hopefully Dallas doesn't set him back by having him sit in the press box for the majority of what's left of this season.

So MG are you saying Erskine has beaten out Sweeney and Daley for the 6th D-spot while he was on injury reserve, or is my Question legit?.... cuz Erskine seems to think so.
