What happens to the tough guys when Frattin and Lupul are ready? Who gets to sit out? Kulemin? Grabovski, MacArthur or McClement? Kadri or Kessel..maybe JVR? You think those goons will see the ice in the playoffs? No chance. Maybe if they face the Bruins one of them will dress....

You guys watch too much Don Cherry. Colton Orr on Kadri's line is an embarrassment..watching him try to keep up with the play....LOL.
