He has something better on the way?

Dogman might play on the third line for Pandolfo, but only until reinforcements arrive. I think he is thrown into the mix on the fourth line, and at the very least, serves as useful depth.

I thought Jokinen would be a useful pickup too, but if Chia knows there is help on the way, help that in one way or another will solve the issues of the third line, then Jokinen might be superfluous. You can only have so many contracts and so many players on the NHL roster before you have to start releasing guys etc....
