Maybe a little strong, you rarely see him making mistakes on the defensive side of the puck.  If you've noticed that he is good on the PP, it's only because he's one of the better passers on the roster.  He's very accurate, and was featured in a In Lou We Trust article for it. 

 

I see no issues with his defensive game. If it wasn't for his defensive game, he'd probably be out of an NHL job by now. My argument is that he has shown nothing more than being a checking center.

 

Also, I meant "PK" not "PP" (and edited the error in my post).

except that isn't true. he played half of two games on Jagr's line last year, and that was it. far from atrocious, too.

 

Maybe "atrocious" was a bit strong. I hope I'm wrong, but I haven't seen anything from JJ to indicate that he's anything more than a checking center. He's great on the PK but I just don't see him as being anything more.

Please keep in mind how many of those games were played on the same line as Cam, Boulton or Gionta

 

You missed my next sentence:

At this point, it's hard to argue he still needs experience or an opportunity to succeed (DeBoer has rotated him on the 1st/2nd lines and was atrocious).

I like to think JJ has potential but the bottom line is that these are his stats:
118 games, 7 goals, 18 assists, 25 points

At this point, it's hard to argue he still needs experience or an opportunity to succeed (DeBoer has rotated him on the 1st/2nd lines and was atrocious).

 

That said, his defensive game is great.
 

One thing i ask myself... Why we get ruutu at the deadline? we are stuck on offense. I actually like Ruutu but his acquisition is questionnable. (Except we intend to trade others 3 liner)

 
The Ruutu trade made no sense. If his contract expired at the end of the 13-14 season, I'd have no problem with it. Well, there's 2 more years on his contract and we have yet another 3rd/4th line caliber player in our lineup that is filled with too many 3rd/4th line caliber players. Oh, and his contract is a $3.8mill cap hit (which is HORRIBLE even with the Canes picking up 20% of his $4.75mill/season contract) with a No Movement Clause. :argh:
 
 

What makes you think it's likely that Carter will sign with us? Unless he's just waiting for LL to move some forwards, there's really no need to sign him despite Carter being the one member of cbgb that I really wanted to see get signed.

 
I think Lou has to make a trade regardless of whether Carter is re-signed or not. But even with a trade, I don't see where Carter fits in, unless JJ is traded or used as an extra forward (which I doubt because he just signed a 2 year, not 1 year, contract). Sucks considering I think he was the best player on CBGB.
