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.
I know. My point is that is doesn't matter what role they are given. Playing with those guys will help him so much more than not playing or playing in the AHL. Of course I would prefer him to not be on a shutdown line, but I don't think that would be one anyway.
