I agree entirely with davedave on the point that neither Dagenais nor Balej provide what Montreal needs. I'd hate to see both on the second line because neither are all that sound fundamentally. I don't think they should both be on the team right now.
Great points Mike8. Balej and Dagenais on the same line is useless. If we had another talented winger to play with Ribs and one of the above (I'd like to see Balej get a good look) , then get Zed back with Koivu and put Bulis back on the 3rd, this team IMO would take a great leap forward.
