To me, once Lindros gets back into the lineup, BOTH Ortmeyer and Moore should be in the linup instead of Hlavac and Lacouture.

Little ice time update. Apparently I was wrong the other day when I said that Messier had a drop in ice time. I thought that he went from 18+ to the 16+ against the 'Hawks. Apparently, I was in error. Messier got slightly over 20 minutes. What does this tell us?
Last night, he got slightly over 17.5 minutes. The only forwards that got more were Kovalev, Rucinsky (strange to see him up here) and Holik. Holik played only 20 seconds more than Messier.
Come on now. When is the insanity going to end? This is nothing but a recipe for disaster. Messier just CANNOT continue to pile up the minutes. What is it that I am missing here? I know that he has played well in spurts, but playing him over 20 minutes against the 'Hawks was just assinine. And what was the need to play him for over 17.5 minutes last night?
