Hopefully even if he did make a costly mistake he isn't that mentally fragile where it will harm him for very long. I expect more out of him than that. I would expect he could just as easily use it as a motivating tool. I think we have to let our kids play their game--correct them as needed but also live with some mistakes. This is a what if situation--to me he possibly would play if 2 of our current D were unable to go. In terms of talent I'd expect more from him than Liffiton. He has the size, the skating--he is a lot closer as a player to really making it than Liffiton out of training camp. Lampman brings good puck moving skills and the most experience but he's alway been held back by one thing or another. Still his skating is okay and he's fairly reliable from what I've seen in the past in keeping good position.

Yes the games are important but maybe he will play well. you never know with a player unless u give him a chance to do well.

I'll say it again, some people bring up young rookie players that are playin for other teams in the playoffs, but the biggest difference is that these guys have played with their respective teams ALL YEAR, these guys are not playoff experiments....I think it's a lot to ask of a kid to be thrown in to the playoffs for his first real NHL experience.
