Well we know he's not gonna scratch Barch for the Flyers game, and probably not the Islanders game. Hopefully we can do that against the Sens, because there's no reason for him to HAVE to play vs the Sens. Butler with Zajac/Kovy could be better. Matteau stunk up the whole first line last night. I counted 3 missed passes to either Kovy/Trav last night.
As long as he's on the first line Trav will be invisible on the score sheet, and I don't expect much from Kovy at even strength either. Butler might be no better, but it's worth a shot. Let's start a game with him on the first line, and not wait until the 3rd to put him there.
