I like Juicy, but he's overrated on LGP. He can chip-in with some scoring as a top-6 forward as he was in Carolina until this year and is lethal on face-offs. A grinder he isn't and he's not really a two-way forward. Playing him at center is also a risk because his time with the Canes he played wing and they used him on some faceoffs but not really as a center. He's not a natural center by any means and his linemates if he plays on the 3rd or 4th line aren't named Eric Staal or Jeff Skinner.
If DB wants to get him in the line up, it had better be as a winger and not center. I'd rather see Glass. He hits like a truck and will engage with Chris Neil and Pens don't need offense right now from their bottom lines; they need to just play it hard and tough, which they have been doing on those lines so far.
