All questions Lavy will have to answer once the line-up is healthy.
He saw more time in game 4 then he did in game 3 which leads me to think Lavy may be seeing something he likes out of him.
As for Powe, I think moving him to play with Giroux and Van Reimsdyk is a good idea, he should give them some space to play with his physical presence.
Those two are just inches away from potting a few on a nightly basis so far this series, it will all fall in to place soon enough.
Also, our depth is pretty apparent right about now. It seems that the team has a bunch of cold players (Richards, Carter, Leino, Briere, Hartnell, some more then others) who arent contributing offensively on even a semi-regular basis, yet the team has put 9 past Miller for 2 wins. This team needs to find its firepower thats for sure.
I think Zherdev has played alright since being in the lineup against Buffalo thus far. Even though I think him and carter bolting out in attempt to get a scoring chance costed us (giving a 2 on 1 vs carle and only goal scored) but that has really been my only complaint about him.
