In all seriousness though, I really don't have an opinion yet - two games in, and two wins at that.

But there are all types of "specialists" in the game, PP, PK, Shootouts, fights, etc. It's the one thing they do good in the game and the reason they are still in the game. So unless they get the opportunity to show they can do it at the NHL level when they have done it at other levels, how else are they suppose to show it?

Yesterday, some people (and I don't mean fans) were asked how much time do you give a player to showcase himself this year after the lockout? The general consensus was 20 games, with a full schedule, but this year 10-12.

Just too early to form a basis here yet. Heck, he's playing with players he's never played with before. There's no chemistry there...yet. I just think it needs more than 2 games before we write him off.
yup. that's my only beef with this thread, the timing of it. Otherwise all roster moves made by the coach are fair game on a hockey forum...how he uses particular players, when he uses them, heck even WHY he uses them, etc. If CB is playing mediocre or just kind of "there" at the 10-15 game mark with other guys who might take that spot both healthy and doing well in minors then yes, CJ's motivation is fair game at that point.
