I'd love to see the two Folignos on the same line. Hard working, sandpaper, with skill. That's the identity I'd like to see from the CBJ.

Edit-This is not meant to be a negative post about RyJo. It's meant to show how much I believe Mark Foligno would be awesome for us.
Not a fan of overpaying for a guy just because we have his brother on the team. See: Philly trading for Luke Schenn.

If we were to go after Marcus Foligno that would be fine, if we were looking to add another second/third line tweener player. Giving up one of our only potential 1st line players - in the entire system - to get him, would hopefully be enough to get Scott Howson sent packing. And I don't dislike Scott Howson.

I thought Ryan Johansen was excellent last night. We have to remember that he's still a kid, but to see him using his size and working as hard as he did last night is a great sign. With his vision, quick hands, and that added weight, this guy is starting to show the potential that got him drafted 4th overall. Very good to see.
