I'd like to see them sign Lowry and at least bring him in to skate with the team; not at all stating they should waste a year of his contract but rather just to bring him in for a look and see if his feet can keep up for a game or two if possible. Call up O'Dell too. An infusion of some youth around a team at this time of year serves to push the pace in-house and motivates vets in the process.

Whatever. Despite all of the warts that some here wish to highlight... they are still leading the pack right now. The Jets current position in the standings beats the heck out of where they stood last season at the same time (comparatively speaking).
I think Wright and Slater are sorely missed, gutless performers like Wellwood, Tangradi, Mittens, Jokinen and Burmi don't bring the intensity to overcome B games by the teams top players.

What O'Dell is still doing in the A is puzzling when your getting basically nothing from a handful of forwards.
