That's what I'm saying. 1 year, if it pans out we look like geniuses. If not its only one season. Plus, Urbom will run to Sweden if by next season he doesn't get a spot. So with Fayne out he can compete for 3rd pairing with Harrold and whomever else.
Not going to be anyone. Fayne may still be out at the start of the season, if not, then they will probably send Harrold or Larsson back to AHL. Harrold has a 2-way contract.
I think It's a massive waste of talent/money to make Tallinder or Larsson sit. Harrold will be our 7th D up in the booth. We're not keeping all of them. Harrold's our cheap 7th D-man who can play solid minutes if called upon.
Fayne may miss start of season but call up Urbom. One of these 8 need to go.
Nobody needs to go. At all. Harrold is a perfect 7th defenseman and might even split time in that roll with Jay Leach from Albany.
Fayne will miss the start of the season and possibly a good portion of the first 20 games.
I don't see his opinion that someone will be sent packing. Larsson will not play 82 games either.
There is a really good feeling about this team right now and I believe Lou's motive is to keep it in tact as much as possible.
Our 7 defenseman on opening day I strongly believe will be:
Fayne - IR
Lou is the worry later type guy. And that's what he will do. Worry later. It's ok to speculate that someone will be moved the minute someone is signed for a position, but in this case I don't see it happening.
