Blake can only be easily replaced if he was easily removable which he isn't. I love Jason Blake. His compete level is off the charts. Nothing about his fitness or his game suggests he's as old as he is. But for how much he makes would I like him to produce more? Absolutely but you can't squeeze juice out of a rock. Blake has great chemistry with Teemu and Saku but he needs them a lot more then they need him.

But all that is moot because he can't be moved and we might as well keep him in a position where he has the best success and that's on the 2nd line. As Carlyle stated today Cogs is going to play center and if Devo makes the team he'll be in the bottom 6. But Blake's PP spot is probably going to be lost to Cogs though so I hope Blake is ready for some PK duty.
