Manning is the best best for that I imagine? Or will Walker play a couple games before going down again?

He can fight LHW's, like Rupp last year. As Broons alluded too he is also physical when not fighting, so while he won't be taking on the very few legit HW's...he helps nonetheless.

QUOTE=Is it wrong to hope for injuries? I agree though. Enough injuries and the types of players we like may see more ice time. The shortened season and camp may make that wish come true./QUOTE
It's only okay to root for injuries if it's a soft Euro.

I don't think Buffalo has much for depth? I'd have to check, but he may play anyways.

Not to mention there are still some fighters (not very good) but Bradley, Vandermeer, ect. are still out there. Hopefully they get signed next week.
