Maybe not THE worst, but it's damned thin. Perhaps Janik is finally ready to make the jump to the lower pair, but that moves Fitzpatrick up into the second pairing. *shudder*
I think Fitzpatrick already was a lock for the 1st or 2nd pairing until he got injured. I hope he's staying in shape. I recall an article where he said he had to work his butt off in the offseason and get in the best shape he's ever been in his life to get another crack at the NHL.
