If anything Powe is competing for playing time with Carcillo and Lappy.
Powe will probably center the 4th line until Betts comes back. Shelley will probably wear some nice suits with his new contract come playoff time.
If they wanted an enforcer to only play 30 games they would hae signed John Scott for $500M (THAT'S WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE DONE). Shelley will play unless he pulls a Brashear and Lavi pulls a Torts.
If a young team looking to for leadership to take the next step asks for Lappy do you move him?
This team had leaders already (Pronger, Kimo, Richards, Briere) and added ODonnell. Powe would take his spot on the 4th line for @ $600M less.
You sir, are offensive.
