So evidently 5th-year defenseman Tyson Strachan (above) has emerged victorious from the Panthers' positional logjam following Friday's packaging of Keaton Ellerby to Los Angeles. He has no points as yet, and sports a minus-1, but in the five games in which he's participated the Cats have yet to lose in regulation (4-0-1). Perhaps there truly is something to the old saying which dictates stats offensive as being a wee bit overhyped in a few cases.
