    Looking at our D right now, and I'm filled with a disquieting feeling.

    So, with those in mind, our D makeup currently looks like this:

    Obviously, throwing Redmond onto the second pair at this point is pretty foolhardy. My personal preference is to throw Ellerby with Enstrom and put Redmond with Pardy, then call up someone.

    Thoughts?

    I suppose Melchiori would be the best choice, but I think if I was Chevy, I'd be looking at the waiver wire.

    First of all we need to see if Bogo will actually be out and if we are looking at a day or so or something longer. Stuart has been practicing with the team and apparently Trouba will be soon. If Bogo can't go Redmond likely steps in. if Stuarts practicing he is likely coming back in in the next game or so. Noel will likely be making a choice between him and Pardy for 6-7. There is a reason why hockey people always talk about needing 10-11 NHL caliber d-man to get through a season. You just can't avoid back-end injuries it is just part of the game.

    Ian White seems to be available.

    Depends on how long it will be between players being ready. We already have Ellerby and, between he and Pardy, I'd rather keep him. Small sample size, I know, but if we were to waive the two I think Pardy would pass more likely than Ellerby.

    Then again, I hear the Oilers are looking for D right now. :sarcasm:

    Lineup will likely be:

    Clitsome-Byfuglien
    Enstrom-Ellerby (they played together quite a bit in the third and OT against Philadelphia)
    Pardy-Redmond
    Melchiori

    It doesn't have "dumpster fire" written all over it so I guess that's a plus...

    Get well soon Bogo and Troubs.

    Good thing we got rid of that bum Hainsey :sarcasm:
    I think we can weather the storm for a couple of games.
     
  11. Clitsome in the first defensive pairing? Dear Lord! The apocalypse is nigh.
     
  12. Because keeping Hainsey on the off chance that 4 defensive starters would be out at the same time would've been a good idea, right? :sarcasm:

    ...Or keep him cause he's better than Clitsome, Stuart, Ellerby, Postma, Redmond, Melchiori, Charot.

    Either way that ship has sailed in a number of different ways.

    The top 4 pairings are pretty interchangable. They've had Enstrom and Buff apart before, and Clitsome has been good with Buff.

    Yea I think they should give the EllEn combination a go. He seems to handle the puck the cleanest out of the survivors :sarcasm:

    Seriously though I have been impressed with Ellerby and Toby is a skilled D man to paired with....they'll be just fine.

    In the "Time to move a d man" thread, a certain very wise person (even if I do say so myself :) ) said, and I quote...

    Hahaha, cracked up so hard in my uni's lab at that thread title. Got some funny looks :laugh:

    But yeah, I've got to agree with you knorthern. For all the flak Chevy gets for his love affair with the waiver wire, the Jets have done an incredible job of using it to supplement our organizational depth. :handclap:

    Seriously though, Trouba can not get back soon enough.

    It's been like that almost all year...

    Enstrom and Bogo tend to lead in icetime, but Buff and Clitsome are often not too far behind. Not to mention we saw it happen numerous times last year and it wasn't horribad, unless clitnone showed up.

    Make a trade, we need to shore up the left side anyways and waiting for Morrissey isn't a great idea IMO.
