I think JFW's point was that he doesn't see him on a shut down 3rd line, which I agree, Foligno-Joey-Prospal is not. Problem is it appears the Jackets don't have a shutdown line and even throwing Letestu in there, while making it more so, doesn't quite get it done.

Playing with Prospal & Foligno has to help him more than burying him on the 4th with Boll & Gillies. The question is what is that line's purpose? A third scoring line or a traditional checking line?

Should be an interesting season with no true 1st line;no real checking line and 2 goalies who could go either way.
