Now if he was playign with Rupp and Scott right now, I don't think he'd be putting up great numbers and on his way to recovering his season and working his way back up the roster.

So in terms of accountability and line time being a function of production and quality of play, I'm not necessarily buying it 100%.
Oh come on. IIRC, the game that Richards was put on the fourth line, he scored the OT goal vs Tampa, then went on a bit of a hot streak.

Torts doesn't have problems with Dubi, as he obviously had much more ice time last year when he was producing. MZA, who Torts supposedly hates, played more minutes last night than Dubinsky. I'm waiting for him to get going....so far, it's not working.
