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...
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
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...
