I don't feel strongly either way but I am curious what kind of impact McI can make since we clearly have a need for his type of player and with Stralman as a UFA I'd like to see what we can get. If the answer is nothing good then hold on to him try and sign him and then if McI is ready deal him from strength.
In any other season one of those two would have made the roster by now. We just have very good defensive depth this season (And yes, I know we've lost the last two games, it doesn't change that fact)
