I'll take your word as I haven't seen enough of the B's this season, but I remain skeptical. And I'm not sure Howson should be looking to move Tyutin for a guy to play on the third line. That said, a guy with his skill-set/potential is something I'd like to have centering the third line.

I take it Commodore's in a Jeff Finger-type situation in Columbus at this point? Do you think if they fall a few more back of the 8th seed they consider moving Tyutin?
Yes I suppose it's possible but it wouldn't be a sell-off. I think Howson is perfectly happy to keep Fedor around.
