This team started the year with a very deep D corps. Good thing! that would be a real solid group if we could just add Pronger, Meszaros and Grossman.
I was thinking Manning, for his size, but I think Lava's concerned about Pittsburgh's speed burning a young guy who is too slow to recover. At this point, it's pretty muching picking the guys who will be least likely to be overwhelmed. Manning has a total of 4 NHL games, Gus has 33.
Don't be surprised to see Bartulis in the lineup after the 12PM waiver deadline. He has playoff experience.
