    By my logic, I think that he thinks the two guys he brought in would be capable enough to alleviate the workloads currently being cast upon Adam Larsson and Darnell Nurse in the instance where three defensemen who are generally expected to play over 20 minutes per game are all facing significant injuries.

    I think that logic dictates that an athlete consistently facing an elevated workload is at a greater risk of a significant injury. An Adam Larsson injury at this point of the season would be curtains.

    The Wideman trade made zero sense to me. The Strome trade made zero sense to me. Unless something magically happens with Manning, that trade made no sense to me. I get the Petrovic one.

    Bigger fish to fry out there than this guy.

    Let's claim Wideman on waivers just to feel like we won a trade. Wait...is that even winning a trade? Whatever, let's roll with it. Let's fleece another team for once.

    This is part of Oil problems. You guys complain at management, but endorse past players being brought back.

    Because most of the ones we send out are better than the ones brought in.

    But he's not taking minutes from Adam Larsson or Darnell Nurse. He's taking them from Matt Benning and Kevin Gravel.

    Did you actually look at their ice times before making this post?

    Both of their minutes are down from that seven game stretch.

    I'm a little shocked he was in last night given his poor performance on Saturday. Seemed to have a decent game yesterday
