Yeah, and he was captain and performed very well at the WJC's. That's actually a big deal. I'm not saying WE should claim him, but that's no small accomplishment. I'll be surprised if someone doesn't claim him.

He absolutely will have chances. They could swap them back and forth between games, and Jeffrey will get in before Adams on a lot of nights, and is probably the #2 guy they will use after ET if the Tangradi experiment on the 2nd line doesn't work. Also...

NO. Jeffrey is our most talented forward option to work the half-wall on the PP for the 2nd unit (provided Neal/Sid/Geno all play 1st unit, as expected). Jeffrey has performed well in that spot in juniors and the AHL, and has even worked the point, a la Ron Francis. He's definitely the guy to QB the 2nd PP unit, whether that's from the point, side-wall, or rover between those two positions.

Kennedy or Sutter on RW, Sutter or Tangradi in front of net; Jeffrey on LW

Niskanen and Martin (or Bortuzzo) (or Jeffrey) on point on 2nd unit.

Dallas is clearly in a rebuild, and they're trying to do it without actually tanking and/or trading away ALL of their players. They have actually done a nice job in that regard. But yeah: they're not a playoff team as their built right now. But what do we know -- maybe they have another trade in the works.
