If you're counting on guys like Simon and Barnaby to provide offense for you ahead of Lundmark, then you're playing them out of position and not giving your youngsters a chance to develop. And when Sather clamps down in an "important" game and starts rolling 3 lines in the 3rd period, guess who will sit on the bench. All the young guys, while everyone else tires out and gives up another 3rd period lead.
I guess we'll just disagree because I think 10-12 minutes of ice time against other teams 4th lines is enough for some offense to be produced and get some offensive flow going. I'm not talking about 2-4 min in the first period here. Basically they'd be getting a regular shift all game, albeit with little PP time, but if guys like Simon can produce a few goals without PP time then Lundmark and Moore should be able to produce some offense also. LIKE I SAID, NOT OPTIMAL, but I'd settle for it and it would be a step in the right direction for this team without hurting their development IMO.
