IMO, he did not look lost or out of place. Krog does nothing for me. Immo would do as well if not better. Orr is a waste. Scratching Ward for him is wrong. Finally, I'm not as down on Hall as others. He is a power play specialist who doesn't get to play. Same for Prucha. Why not give them more time. If we make make the playoffs,not a given, we need two productive scoring lines and two lines for the power play. Regrettably, I believe the team is regressing towards the pre-purge era.Please show me the rebuild that I was promised. We do not hear much about it these days
I totally agree with EVERYTHING you said:

Immonen - SHOULD be in the lineup as a center, whether 2nd or 3rd line center, doesnt matter, but he should be playing. He is WAY better than Orr, Hall, etc.

Prucha - SHOULD get much more ice time and not on the freaking 3rd or 4th line.

As bathgate said above, even if we do make the playoffs with this roster...we need more than 1 scoring line so we need to let the kids play now and play more!
