Haha, darn. Was hoping we'd have Baertschi and extra 3-5 games.

This is my thought exactly. I love the way he has played the last 2 games. Hopefully he sticks around for at least 1 or 2 more.

Yea what's the hurry? If I was Feaster/Sutter I would go to Jackman and say hey man, if you're not ready don't rush it.

Tangs - Stajan - Iggy
Glencross - Jokinen - Cammi
Comaeu (Baertschi) - Backlund - Stempniak
TK - Moss - Jackman
Alt: Kolanos, Jones

Once healthy this line-up is going to be fun to watch (also I had to leave Sven in there!!!)

There is already a good SvenB thread going, but i'm hoping he's still in the line up tomorrow as i have tix.

The team appears to have good scoring depth if they all come back healthy for the playoff push.

I would like to take TKO out and put Jones in but that looks a million times better than now.

What's the hurry with Baertshi, that's what I say, haha. He's got 20 more years left in the tank, now is the time when we need some vets in the lineup.

While I agree on these lines when everyone returns, I just don't see Backlund or Jones returning in the regular season

I think ideally if Jones doesn't find some more offense, he's a 4th line guy, but is fully capable of 3rd line minutes. His forecheck energy is fantastic.

I just can't in good faith put him ahead of 9 other guys (Iggy, Tangs, Joker, Cammy, Stajan, Stemps, Backlund, Glenner, Moss) for a top nine spot.

As much as I love me some Bouma, the 4th line can consist of TKO (who I like), Jones, Jackman and Comeau.

Stempniak is the closest to returning of the FWs.

Nice! This will add more depth to our 3rd line and give us another scoring threat.

Anyone hear if Glencross is in the clear from his hit the other night?

No supplementary discipline for Glenny

And damn, this might be our last game to see Baertschi

Yahoo! Sports is saying Jones will be ready to play during the current road trip, which would mean in the next two games / next three days.
