Seems a logical choice but I expect Bylsma to roll

Orpik-Martin
Letang-Nisky
Engel-Despres

Shame as I'm a big fan of Bort from what we've seen


Pffft... Rookies, dey soff.

Can't just have rookies out there all over the ice. No team could even make the playoffs, let alone win a round with like 6 rookies playing regularly. :pop:

Look at Edmonton. They have rookies/sophmores everywhere. Yea, they are talented, but that's not how you win hockey games.

Rookies in the right spots can be a good thing - like Philly last year. Having rookies on D is a gamble.
