I certainly could see that. Bond & build chemistry together. Then near after the trade deadline when we got rid of some more deadwood bring them up for the last 15-20 games.

Looking at this game I expected to see Liffiton running around getting caught on of position and some who have seen him on regular basis claim. I haven't seen that. He's looked much like I saw him last year with Charlotte. Potter playing a good game as is Baranka. Baranka sees the ice very well. Up front every forward plays the body and has decent sets of wheels.
