Boone Jenner is a good player. May compete for the Calder this year.

Once upon a time, he would knock people out on a regular basis. If he did that again, he might still serve a purpose that put him ahead of Bortuzzo on the depth chart.

Agreed.

When you have a name like that, it has to be good.

How many times will Steigy call Jussi, "Oli Jokinen"?

Let's start an over under. I'll take over no matter what the number is.

Zolneryzkquizkichuck's questionable past aside, dude is a buzz saw out there. Nice little fourth line player.

EN goals. We never score one, but seem to give up too many.

Would you say the 2nd line is set?

I think that puts Depres in quite the precarious situation.

Bennett/Jussi is a tough decision.

I'm good with BB on the 3rd ..thinking he makes Sutter better.

Hard to believe he slipped so far in the first round, just a solid, well rounded Dman. My friend is a scout for the London Knights and loves his game. He'll dominate the O this year.

Maatta and Pouliot will both go back to Juniors. No reason not too. They will probably be top 4 in WBS next season and then the year after that all we have signed is Letang and Scuds (as of today, lots will change over next 2 years).

Bennett's defensive play too suits a 3rd line role nicely. On the LW he would also be on Sutters forehand which means he would get better passes than on the RW. He definitely seems to have some more grit than Jussi. I'd love to see Kobasew round out that line regardless.

Nice thing though is Bennett and Jokinen can fill in anywhere in the top 6 when there is an injury. I'd even be comfortable with them in the short term as 2/3 of the second line if needed.

I'm in favor of sticking Beau on the third line just so we can afford to re-sign him when the time comes.
