Sad that 2 first round picks never turned in to anything. (Josefson/Teddy) Someone (another team) has to have some "desire" or see value in them to trade for them. What does JJ do well? Teddy is speedy but, speed s worthless if you get knocked off the puck when someone blows on you. Moving a player means someone actually see's a value. The fact they are both former 1st rounders might help? But, this isn't looking good at all

Has anyone tracked the CBGB line's shifts, are they being used against top lines or has that only happened on a few occasions? are they getting tough matchups to free up our "supposedly, scoring lines" or are they just su(king against other bad lines? and I know that they all play multiple roles now. so is it time to break them up?

this is probably a question for triumph or feisty, I have no idea where to find this info, but it looks to me like Pete has been using them against top lines early in games in hopes to try to open up favorable matchups for guys like jagr, Ryder, Elias, and Brunner.

I really liked what I saw from Olesz in the pre-season, but it just didn't materialize in the regular season....yet.

 

And I did notice that the CBGB line has played in just about all situations, against top lines and some lesser lines as well. 

I specifically remember one of the Sedins getting a tripping penalty against Gio.

I did a (very quick and not very scientific) check on extraskater.com and no, they're almost always in the lower third in terms of icetime vs top lines. Granted they don't get a ton of icetime compared to the other lines. But I've also noted that they start a lot of games.

Who else are they going to send down?  Josefson would be claimed.  Loktionov might not be but he seems to be playing well enough to avoid the waiver wire.

I think you know who I'm talking about.   lol.   Not now obviously since they're down to one forward scratch, but whenever it is Clowe comes back.
