I think Jo is good on the PK, but I'm pretty sure he isn't going to be anything more than a 4th line center, maybe 3rd.
Josefson has been starting in the offensive zone less than 40% of the time. He's 21 years old and being used like he's John Madden. Any tiny bit of offense we've seen out of him has been a complete bonus seeing as how he's getting the tough starts more than anyone on the team (literally...and that's including defensemen) and has yet to take more than 3 shifts in a row with the same line.

I don't think people should be high or low on Josefson at this point. I feel like I can't even be sure what I've seen from him so far. Have patience with the kid.
