    He’s not a winger.

    You have a bazaar take in this. Your clinging to this one game stint that has nothing to do with favoritism. It was to burn a year of his deal. That’s all it was. Many teams are doing this. He did spend time in Providence, so they brought him up with a need on the 3rd line. He is getting better with his play. The more he plays the better. He has chipped in some dirty goals by being around the net. He just needs to get stronger. I think that applies to many of these kids. As far as Celarik, I would like to have seen him already. But like every team, they have goals and do have favorites. In my opinion, every prospect should play a whole year in Providence no matter what. At one time, that 3rd line with all three kids wasn’t so bad. Don’t know why Cassidy isn’t playing them again.

    You’re right, I shouldn’t get hung up on him burning a year. I should leave JFK out of it since he plays center and Cehlarik wing, although JFK is now playing on Krejci’s wing. It’s a little frustrating but I hope he produces, JFK does have good vision.

    I’m puzzled at Cassidy’s lines. JFK is the last guy that I would put on his line. I don’t get it. I’m starting to spit on his choices for linemates. It’s starting to piss me off. I was critical of Clode in this and Cassidy is lining up the same way. My lack of seeing behind the scenes in practice is a problem but the eye test tells me something else is going on.

    JFK is a center. Let’s not make playing hockey in the pros any harder that it is right now by changing his position.

    I hope he shows enough hockey sense to change our minds with this opportunity.

    Looks like desperation to me. His other option is Nordstrom and no one wants to see that. I guess he could try Donato there and that would make some sense, but that’s the only other decent option there is right now. I’ve said since preseason I want Cehlarik to get a shot but Cassidy doesn’t like him for some reason. With the options they have, JFK to Krejci’s wing doesn’t bother me and it could work out, we’ll see.

    I'd rather have him up there then Nordstrom, but he's a pass-first guy I think. Can you imagine JFK and Krejci on a breakaway? Who would even shoot?

    JFK seems to have gotten his goals going to the net hard so he either takes it hard to the net or he is there to attempt to clean up a rebound.

    There is an old saying in hockey, “if you can play Center, you can play wing, if you play wing it does not necessarily mean you can play Center.” One thing you can be sure of, he won’t be any worse at wing than he has been at Center.

    Liked seeing JFK get some shorthanded time with Nordstrome out of the lineup.

    Him proving himself in the defensive zone will be a big reason if he is to stick around as the 3rd line center of this team.

    I think he's looked pretty good the last couple of games on the kid line, him and Donato especially are making plays and not getting rewarded for it.

    He's still gotta work on his face-offs but with Bergy back maybe he'll be able to learn a thing or two from one of the best.

    He needs to keep his motor going the entire game. If he does that he'll be a good player.
