Building on what you wrote, Fletch

I think it would be in the best interest of the team to play Immonen on the second line.

Playing a similar amount of games and having relatively comparable numbers, I think it's safe to say that Krog is going to offer no more than Immonen can...the only benefit perhaps being that he is a faster player, which can be offset by the fact that Immonen is a younger player.

In this case of line shuffling, why not insert Immonen in for Krog on the second line? Best case scenario is that they click, and Immonen has built up some more equity for himself on this team. Worst case...they stink, nothing new. But, even if management doesn't view Immonen as part of the team's future, I'm sure playing him with Jagr and finding some success could increase his value slightly if they are looking to move him.
