That's great. I'd like to see them put him right back with Rivet, where he was effective early in the year. However, that presents the problem of who does Butler play with? He has looked bad when with Sekera, I'd really prefer he was with a defensive minded guy (not Sekera) and Lydman is our top guy, who is going to get top minutes. So, I don't know what to do.

If we put Tallinder back with Rivet, I guess I'd say...
Tallinder-Rivet
Butler-Lydman
Spacek-Sekera

If not:
Sekera-Lydman
Tallinder-Spacek
Butler-Rivet

I REALLY want to see Sekera-Lydman reunited as our top pairing. They were great together last year, and that was before Sekera emerged as one of our top guys.

Thank god the fact he wears an "A" didn't keep him in the lineup tonight...

I hope this also means Spacek-Lydman gets split up, I haven't liked that pairing at all.

We'll probably either see

Tallinder-Lydman
Spacek-Sekera
Butler-Rivet

or

Spacek-Lydman
Tallinder-Sekera
Butler-Rivet.

My money is on the first one. I really wish Tallinder or Spacek could play the right side so we could see the beastly Sekera-Lydman top pairing.

No matter the pairing, losing "icky Nooms" and gaining Hank should be a dramatic increase.

Yes.

It's not the pairings as much as it is the fact that we're without a true liability at the back end. We're a better team because of it

Thank God Teppo's out of the lineup. It will be interesting to see how the top 6 plays tonight, especially on the PK.

The bolded actually looks like a legit top 6. Now, if only they can perform as a top 6, then we will start winning games again. I'll say I'm slighty optimistic in the least. Good mixture of toughness, veteran leadership, and puck moving D makes me very optimistic right now. Hopefully, I am not proven wrong...

I'm guessing that one. I like two of the 3 pairs. Still not a big fan of Spacek/Sekera but they are 5x better than Teppo with anyone.

Not really sure Butler addresses that but I'm glad to see Ruff recognizes the need.

Check out the coments on the article jj posted. One person suggest we could actually trade him while another calls him "the only solid defenceman we have had this season besides Toni Lydman."

I lol'd.

The only way that one would work is by wishing on Halley's Comet with a blue moon on your Birthday.

Baby steps.

The misinformation in that comments section...apparently Teppo's not only been a solid defenseman, we can't trade him because he has an NTC...wat?
