Agreed SoS...

that's also why I pitched Immonen as a second line center - even though he's not ideal, I thought him being there allowed other to play more natural positions and the overall result was a better team. Perhaps only marginally better, but when you lose a bunch of games by a goal, marginally could be the difference between making and missing the playoffs. It's about having the best lineup, and I cannot think of any way a lineup would be optimized if Ward is on a top line. Renney doesn't want to bring up kids to play on fourth lines? Fine. Call up Dawes, play him with Shanny and allow Prucha to play with Jagr, where he's had success in the past. Is this that difficult? I have little doubt that Jagr still has a chance of scoring a goal or setting up a goal against Philly even with Ward, especially given the rest, but let's make some sense and use the kids that are down on the farm.
