Lewis' goal was more flukey and the Calgary goaltender being out of position / view blocked, than a good shot.

I'm sorry, but other than on the PK (where is he EXCELLENT), Lewis is MEH. His offensive vision is non-existent. A number of times over the past few games, he's brought the puck into the offensive zone, and if he had bothered to look up/around him for a split second, could have found a WIDE OPEN teammate. Instead he shoots a weak shot from a bad angle.

And he seems to consistently lose track of the puck when its around him. It's almost like he needs glasses or something.

I'm perfectly fine seeing Lewis on the bottom six. He's very very good on the PK (reminds me of Handzus). He's responsible defensively in general. He's got good foot speed. But like so many before him, he does NOT belong on the top 2 lines. Period.

Don't worry, just wait 2 games and the line combos will change. Ride'em while they're hot.

We've had a few goofy lines with not top-6 players that have gotten hot for 4 or 5 games. Just leave'em alone until they cool off and then change them out. The Calder-Stoll-Brown and Richardson-Kopitar-Simmonds lines come to mind.

Lewis is an ideal fourth line defensive forward to me. Goo for the PK and eating up some ice time for the scoring lines. He turns it on in the playoffs though with his energy and tenacity, but just can't bring it on a regular basis and doesn't belong on the top 6 or even 9 as far as I'm concerned.

I remember a scouting report I read when we drafted him that states that at worst he could be the best third line center in the NHL, but it seems quite evident now that even that far exceeds his capabilities. He is what he is and at least that isn't a bust.

I think when Kopi got injured, Lewis stepped up and played with Brown and Ryan Smyth and did a nice job.
Ahh yeah that's right.
