He and Hainsey are deserving of 2nd pairing. I think coach might be noticing that as after the 1st period last night Ron and Sopes had less than half the TOI that Oduya and Bogo had. By the end of the 3rd they were all almost even.
i agree on re-upping him for another year, he's rock solid and a lead buy example kinda guy....i dont care about the kids in Chicago, theyve earned NOTHING yet..get even younger with 2 of them in the lineup next year? uh, no thanks...LEGIT STANLEY CUP contenders dont toss aside vet D-men for children.
