He has played on the both the 1st and 2nd lines at one point or another this season. He has played with Jagr. He has played with Lang. He has centered Bondra and Grier. of course as with all line combinations it was for short duration. I have not seen any offensive spark from him. Nor have I seen any from Gordon after the 2nd game of the year. The only one of the young guys that is creating offensive chances is Semin. Sutherby, Gordon, Eminger, Willsie have shown little. Pettinger has two goals, but both of those were so soft that had they not gone in they would not have been considered scoring chances.
Its also very clear that after Gonchar there is ZERO offense from the blue line.
