Sutherby scratched/lineup changes

Time for the latest round of line and lineup changes from the hole in the head, i mean hole in the wall gang behind the caps bench.

Sutherby and Miller...Miller has cleared waivers and can be sent to Portland.

Too bad that Cassidy didn't realize that having three career minor leaguers and a rookie on defense every game wasn't a reason to keep a checking line together before they sent Konowalchuk packing. Cassidy has finally totally bagged his plan to keep a big guy, Grier and Battaglia most recently on a top line. The good news is that Grier goes back to Halpern and Semin-Zubrus-Bondra look like an explosive unit. The bad news is there is a waiver pickup on the first line with Lang and Jagr.
I had a Ciernik flashback when I saw that. Another one when I saw that Miller might be Portland bound.

One last point. I think we all are impressed to one level or another by Eminger. He has played well, but you need to look only as far as his -8
to see that it would be much better if he were not second on the defense in minutes played just yet.
