Schubert back on D?

I was watching HNIC last night and 'Deaner' helped me notice that Schubert was back on D.

In a (perhaps) related story, the Oilers had a scout at the game.

Did anyone notice any of our D getting hurt, or were we "resting" a D that may get moved in a trade?

It looked like Corvo was the guy sitting, but I'm not sure.

It could be one of a few things:

(a) he had a mild injury or equipment problem
(b) he was being benched a shift or two for taking that hooking penalty
(c) Schubert is a larger and more physical presence in his own zone, and the Habs were pressing
(d) the Sens are showcasing Schubert

I'm guessing it's either (b) or (c).

Trading our d would be stupid. We need to get another dman, not lose one.

I concur. There's no way the Sens are showcasing Schubert. His value to the team is exponentially higher than your average fourth line grinder. As a utility player he has a great future with this team.

Schubert had about 4 minutes of ice-time, and the 4th line didn't get out much. I suspect this was Murray getting the guy a few shifts.

I guess I was wondering if sitting Corvo meant that we were protecting him in some way so we could deal him.

I would think Schubert is far too valuable (as a player and for his contract) to give up for a run at the Lord Stanley.

I still think Corvo is a good guy to have around and seems like his play has improved in the past few weeks.

He's done in quite a few games lately. Schubie gets a couple of shift on D in the third period.

i doubt anyone is getting traded to edmonton. The sens only have seven defenceman, and buffalo showed last year how important it is to have some spares. If anything, the scout was there for the habs d-men, with them sliding quickly out of playoff position and having so many ufa's back there, souray included.

Schubert has been getting minutes on D in tight situations or on some penalty kills. This is either because they don't trust Corvo or they want to get Schubert some minutes on D because he hasn't played a full game on D for a while.

I think Corvo got benched for a shift or two because of his penalty that led to the Markov goal. Corvo was out on the PP later in the 3rd but I don't know if he saw anymore even-strength time.

I think he was just looking to give other players a chance since the 4th line hardly played. I believe he also had McAmmond taking Neils spot with Spezza and Heatley in the 3rd.

He did, which had me banging my head on my coffee table at home.

Nothing against McAmmond, but if Murray wanted to give a 4th liner more ice time, put Eaves up there.
