He better make the most of it. If he doesn't perform immediately, Bylsma will put him back on the 4th line faster than Geno can give up a turnover.

I'm too lazy to dig up the actual quotes, so these from my memory

First, it was Eric Tangradi (Big Dog, ET, etc)
- "I'm going to play my game, go to the net, control the boards, chip in however I can"

Then it was TK
- "I'm going to play my game, use my speed, first on the puck, and keep shooting, that's what has brought me success..."


now we have Dustin J


Fact is, when you put a guy on this line, HE MUST do the following.

- Be the deep guy, go get the pucks (make them easier to get), get it to the shooters
- Be physical, make room, ensure you have occupied a defenseman, and preferably the better of the two
- Make it hard for the goalie to see
- Be willing to stick up for the other two stars should tomfoolery ensue

These asks are not rocket science, and Kunitz did it marvelously last year. I don't think DJ has the jam/grit/sandpaper to do the ask.

Sure, you could "re-invent" the line, but let's not get too far away from a known good thing.

Variant of "get to our game". That's what Jeffrey needs to do. "I'm going to get to my game."

I always wish the reporter would ask the followup:

"What game is that? The game of hockey?"

2. Then he'll be on the 4th line with Vitale & Kennedy; Adams will play LW on the 2nd line.

We all know if chemistry isn't built after 1 shift, it never will be.

Is Jeffrey even going to play tonight after claiming Boychuk?

oh smokin Jesus titty cinnamon! Let's hope Boychuk isn't cracking this lineup any time soon. Waiver pickup of a guy that is small and hasn't scored for 3 decades is NOT going to fix this team.

I tell you what, if Boychuk gets to NYC in time and plays ahead of Jeffrey, than something is really up between Bylsma and Jeffrey.

yep. DJ was the best forward on the ice last game, which isn't saying much but he was noticeable every shift and some of the best scoring chances the pens had were created by him.

Jefferys played very well last night, need to see more of him on that line to believe he belongs there but last night was a great start. Geno had to of liked him, everytime Jefferys got the puck he put it on Genos stick.

Tangradi is done on this team. Jeffrey at least can play 16-20 minutes physically. I'd have liked to see more speed and Boychuk might still bump him.

I don't think Jeffrey is the answer, but he's enough of a band aid to stay in the top 6 until moves are made. If the canes can waive a first round pick, I think we could send Tangradi down to WBS and feel ok about it if we need some roster space.

I still don't think Tangradi would clear waivers.

:scared:

Kidding. At this point I don't care. We tried him everywhere and he's not fitting in. If he gets claimed, good luck to him. Hopefully he can get traded for something, even conditional.

Obviously, DJ got the page. He was interviewed between periods, seemed really nervous. I feel for him, but he came through last night. This Boychuk signing is going to keep us busy for at least 5 games.

You mean letting players play in their natural, life-long positions can help them play better?

Can you scribble that on a napkin and get it to HCDB?
