Sifers to stay up; Stralman sent to the Marlies

There's an interesting little bit by Mirtle, both on From the Rink and The Globe and Mail about Sifers and Stralman.  Sifers has played well enough in the past two games to stay up, and Stralman is being sent down.

Wilson reasons that he wants Stralman playing a lot of minutes in all situations, so it only makes sense for him to go to the Marlies, while Sifers stays up.  He also brings up the fact that Frogren will soon return, so Sifers shouldn't get too comfortable.

I  haven't seen Sifers play - is he better than Stralman?  Or is this more of a case of the type of defenseman the Leafs need right now?  I understand that Sifers is a good stay at home, shut down defenseman, and has been playing in Schenn's place with Finger.  After last year's world championship, however, I was completely sold on Stralman and see him taking Kaberle's place when we do part ways with Toamas.  I'm glad he'll get more minutes with the Marlies, but wish he was given more of a chance with the big boys.
