Henrique is producing at or just below last seasons rate. He was dry for awhile though after scoring like 5 points in his first 6 game back. Patty is producing at last years clip, Kovy is slightly under, but he's had 3rd liners on his opposite wing the whole season, and looks gassed towards the end of every game. Clarkson was producing at above last years clip before going dry. Loktionov's production could replace Sykora's from last regular season. I'm not gonna complain about the Zajac contract or say banish him to the 3rd line forever. Though he needs to be kept off the 1st line for the duration of the season unless he starts producing. Try again next year with him on the 1st line when we have some margin for error. There isn't too much left this season.
Well that is really the rub right now. Zajac not producing, and it is hard to ask other guys to cover up for him when he really needs to be that guy.
