I just hope Lou does SOMETHING because I cannot at all support Cam or Barch having a spot instead of Butler. At least give the kid a shot instead of those 2 pylons.


My sentiments exactly. Yet often on these boards when the almighty Lou is questioned, we get responses like "Oh yea, Lou has no idea. He should surf this forum to know what to do"

Lou said he wants Butler to get more playing time in Albany, so neither Janssen nor Barch have anything to do with what's gone on here.

I was going to say. Don't we carry players on the 23 man roster who don't dress? Why would we want Butler to be that? If he's not looking good enough to beat out the others who were chosen to be regular starters for now, what other move was there to be made?

I'd like it to be true but I have a hard time believing Butler isn't good enough to fit inside our top 6. I mean, who takes his spot; Bernier? Tedenby? Yuck. I don't think we have as much as 4 wingers who are better than him.

Means Cam likely gets in the lineup and one of the 4th line guys gets bumped up.

CBGB is de facto third line with Matteau Darche and Janssen on the fourth line if Josefson cant play tomorrow.

My guess for tomorrows lineup with Jojo is...

Zubrus Zajac Kovalchuk
Tedenby Elias Clarkson
Matteau Josefson Bernier/Darche
Carter Gionta Darche/Bernier

Or they could feasibly play Harrold in a fwd spot instead of Cam.

God help us. There better be a trade for a top six forward coming, and soon.

Which means that he only has one foot

Guess keeping Barch is more essential to our chances ::rolls eyes::

Really getting sick of the goons now

Lou said he wants Butler to get more playing time in Albany, so neither Janssen nor Barch have anything to do with what's gone on here.


That's horse doo doo from Lou

Eh we go through this every year as fans. I seem to recall hating the goons being a yearly ritual around here (understandably, mind you)

In Lou we trust people, just sip some kool aid and sit back. I'm sure there's something in the works here.

Since time immemorial, Lou (and most other GMs) have treated the 4th line as different from all others. If a certain sort of player is going to either be on the 4th line or be a top line player in the minors, they will usually send him to the minors.

Or we can see this for what it really is....

It's a player coming off a 6 goal season who was bought out by Ottawa, and is now a reclamation project who is probably an AHL+ player. Not exactly someone who is indispensable, as some of you are treating him as the 2nd coming of Stamkos.
