Even with Juneau's back, there's no need for one more center. We have Perreault playing the wing...
I really would like to see a Bulis-Ribeiro-Balej line. That'd be a complete line... Bulis plays well at both ends and plays with grit, Ribeiro is a good passer and Balej a good scorer (in the AHL/WHL). Might be worth trying.. that'd boost the tempo that line plays with.
I'm not to sure about recalling Balej
though. Maybe let him down there for most of the season so that he dominates and then bring him up here while fully confident in his possibilities.
But with Audette and Ward back soon.. I doubt we'll see any more young guys for a while.
