Here is an idea if you need a 8th defenseman in case of injury.
CALL SOMEONE UP. It is allowed in the NHL.
They are well aware of calling up the 'kids' on defense, as they had to go that route last season... You remember last season and how that turned out, don't you?... This to me is a way of having Back-Line depth while allowing the kids on the Farm to mature... and use them if and when they are ready.
If one of the young Farmhands is deemed ready then there is nothing preventing Homer of sending down Gill -- at no Cap cost whatsoever -- and promoting him.
What's the big deal; really?
