Im betting they start the season with that 4th line too. Little G will be a lot harder to get rid of then most think.
It's not an awful 4th line, but I expect Gionta to get PK duties, which he has no business having. I also don't like it because it hasn't properly rewarded anyone for their training camp and pre-season. Josefson should be starting the season in the lineup over Gionta and Olesz over Carter. Really crappy coaching in my opinion.
I see in Ottawa they sent down former top pick Mika Zibanejad. He had the second most points of any returning Senator this year. He was sent down because other players like Pageau and Da Costa clearly outplayed him. No free passes there. Was hoping there wouldn't be here. But why should we be surprised after Deboer gushing about Gionta a little while back.
