The reason that the Jets are doing this. And they are doing so rightly in my opinion. Is that we need to improve defensively over last year. We now are rolling 3 scoring lines.

Machacek is not a defensive forward, if anything he'd need to find room on the third line, but he isn't good enough to be played over poni, antro or burmi.

jets brass are looking to have a true shut down defensive 4th line, gritty and tough. And that's what this move gives us.

Machacek has been terrible defensively for the caps, so I doubt they'll throw him on out 4th (defensive) line.

He'll likely get a better look next yr if we don't resign antro and poni
