Another off the wall impression is that Blake is extremely effective in front of the net- when he goes there. Maybe put Blake at forward on the powerplay and maybe even even strength when we need it.
I remember at least a handful of times where Demers got sniped from the stands and fell for some unknown reason or plays where he'll hang onto the puck for too long and get stripped. You're right though in that Blake looks like crap. But I'd still rather trust the veteran that knows how the playoffs works as opposed to a rookie d-man who hangs on to the puck too long in the regular season so who knows how many times he'll cough it up when time shrinks more in the post-season.
