It’s a numbers game sometimes. And this is the card that Mike Bartlett and Scott Lehman just drew.
Bartlett is playing on a minor league two-way deal, so he’s the odd forward out, despite the speed and effort he has consistently been displaying. The Steve Begin signing also contributed to the move. And Lehman becomes the 8th defender when Roman Josi is ready to play….which is expected to be this weekend in Abbotsford!
