Give Butler a bit of time, he is slowly getting into game shape

He didn't do much in his first 10 games last year as well. This situation reminds me of Kuba last year, although a bit different. Butler wasn't 100% ready both mentally and physically, then got injured. Hard to pick up your game fast after that

All that being said, I don't think Butler is in our long-term plans, but could be a nice stop-gap while other prospects develop. We might even get something in return down the road. Let's make him a good asset. We don't need scapegoats in a rebuilding season.

Michalek - Spezza - Alfredson
Greening - Da Costa - Butler
Foligno - Z. Smith - Condra
Daugavins - Konopka - Winchester

Cowen - Gonchar
Kuba - Karlsson
Phillips - Rundblad

Anderson - Auld
Greening not on Spezza's line is a total waste of a spot in the top-6

Greening - Spezza - Michalek
Foligno - Da Costa - Alfredsson
Daugavins - Smith - Butler
Winchester - Konopka - Condra

Cowen - Gonchar
Kuba - Karlsson
Phillips - Rundblad

Anderson - Auld


When Regin is back, he draws in Foligno spot, who draws in Daugavins spot
