Some people were, as you might imagine, still very angsty.

I'd like to see Jokinen center the 4th line once everyone is healthy.

Why do you care? He's not our concern anymore.

i guess hockey nerds can attest to this, but this isn't apparent to the uninitiated. he's without question a defensively responsible center. possibly at a rare level. but he's neither quick nor particularly rangy (like staal was), so i don't know if i'd go as far to say he's an outstanding "shutdown center".

Dupuis produces everywhere he plays in the lineup. Kunitz does too. The reason for that is that their games are not all about scoring ala James Neal. When Neal doesn't score, his game suffers overall. The other two do all the little things that matter.
