At what point do we move Fistric up on the top D-line? He is the only Stars player that seems to be even or + every night, and he continues to play a much needed physical game. He has really stepped up his game this year and is proving that he should be getting more than 16min a night, IMO. And any D-man that beats someone over the head with a helmet (completely unintentional if the NHL brass is reading this, I might add) gets brownie points from me!
I say move him up now and let him ply his wares against some of the top lines. We can't get any worse at this point. Robidas looks beaten down to me, and Skrastins can block shots all day but seems to be really struggling in the other aspects of his game.
This is my first fanpost so bear with me. I've added a poll below to get the general consensus.
So, who would be your top two pairing D-men if you were the coach?
