The fact that Cam Janssen is still on this team and Butler has been waived is most annoying.

Some of us are disappointed because the kid does have potential. If you are going to say he cant crack the Sens lineup last year at least include he had injuries and had 4th line duty, you also have to say he had a hell of a rookie year with the Sens two years ago. Hopefully he returns to Albany and can impress some more.



Agreed. His path has been similar to Tedenby's in that way. Has had his moments in the NHL but hasn't been able to show it on a consistent basis. I am definitely pulling for him to clear waivers, keep improving his game and come up firing once inevitable injuries take place. I just see it as our homegrown version of Butler (Tedenby) beat him out for the spot. I will admit that I am one of the people who still watch Tedys goal VS the Islanders and dream.

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.

Unless Barch starts the season on IR. Maybe that's what's going on here.

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.
