REV-G Posted October 25, 2022 Share Posted October 25, 2022 From what we're hearing Joel Edmundson is getting close to returning to action and Mike Matheson is still about 4-6 weeks away. So the question for us is what do we do when these two veteran d-men return? The pairings lately have been: Savard - Guhle Harris - Kovacevic Xhekaj - Wideman So the question is who goes? I assume Wideman would be moved to the the 7th d-man as you don't want a rookie sitting in the press box, especially when they are waiver exempt. But what do you do for the final spot? Do you send Harris or Xhekaj down to the AHL when they seem to be doing fairly well in the NHL? Do you trade a D-man? Personally I don't think that's something they want to do because of the injuries that will inevitably come. I don't think they will send Guhle down. My guess is they begin a rotation, as long as everyone is healthy, with one of Harris and then Xhekaj being sent down and then rotate them with one being in the NHL and the other spending some time in Laval. The other option is that if another d-man gets injured then the returning players will simply fill that spot. Decision time is getting closer. Thoughts?
