Never hurts to give guys like Lovejoy a chance against the weaker teams. It's not like the kid will be ruined for sitting out this game.
The Islanders aren't terrible this year.

And Despres won't be ruined, but my day will by having to watch Lovejoy fumble around. The only acceptable game for Lovejoy to play in is one followed by the news that he's been traded to the LA Kings for Jessica Alba's phone number and a conditional 7th round pick.
