And it can't be for showcasing them either. It's not like they're going to produce like crazy. They're defensive specialists and everybody knows what to expect from those 2. I personally think we could do without them, but it sure doesn't look like CJ's take on the situation. I think an offensive line will be broken up before they change that checking line.
Good point. Juneau and Dackell each played 20 minutes plus a few seconds last game. Bulis was third (for forwards) at almost 19 minutes. Most forwards played about 12 minutes, with Zed and Ribs logging 14 and 15 minutes. CJ obviously views them as integral parts of his lineup.
