To the minors:

Aucoin. Too small, too slow, not skilled enough for offense at this level and very risky defensively and without the puck. Pp specialist? We have better options, really. He wasn't horrible today but over n48 games, I would prefer him in the AHL.

McDonald. Not NHL player. Had moments but he's simply not capable.
Reasoner: don't need him
Boulton: don't need him and he is Terrible. Could be an extra fwd for NYR games but must physical.

The Lines:
- don't like Boyes with Grabs, replace him with Ullstrom or JJ once he is back. Either Boyes or Grabs should be with Fran's, the other winger needs to have size, speed, north-south player. Even Martin would work.

- need to have a proper,NHL caliber #2 C. We don't have one, will need to put Bailey there again.

Moulson Tavares Boyes
Ullstrom Bailey Okposo
Grabner Nielsen Joensuu
Martin Cizikas Boulton

Streit Visnovsky Martinek Hamonic MacDonald Strait Hickey Carkner

The team will never beat the top teams in the east, simply too many players who are far out of their element.

Not enough speed, forechecking or sustained pressure, no forced turnovers, not enough drawn penalties and outmatched 5on5.

Bad combination with a predictable ending, as predictable as a Maury Povich episode. But in our case, it rhymes with OTTERY.
