Steve Zipay at Blue Notes says last year's defensive pairings of Wade Redden-Michal Rozsival and Marc Staal-Dan Girardi may be a thing of the past...
"The four pairs in the hopper in last couple days have one youngster with a partner with NHL experience, with one of the two counted on for joining the rush. Torts wants Staal to increase his offense.
So Del Zotto-Redden; Gilroy-Girardi, Staal-Rozsival, Sanguinetti-Semenov."
...breaking up The Albatross Twins was a necessity. Hopefully their play won't bring down Del Zotto or Staal.
