Lemmon was given enough ice time to prove himself and so far only has 2 points in 52 games to show for it. While I like the way the kid plays he does not seem to have the offencive upside that the other young players have and he is prone to some really bad penalties. M Crammarosa is just as good a skater and Heffernan looks to have a better shot plus they are both a year younger. Burrnett needed to make room this was a good start I would not be suprised to see another forward moved if they don't start producing more offensively.
