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.

Willsie-Lang-Jagr
Semin-Zubrus-Bondra
Grier-Halpern-Battaglia
Pettinger-Gordon-Peat
Scratched.......
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.
