How much longer is Kelly going to be playing on the top line? He's a good defensive player and all, Spezza/Heatley definitely need a responsible player on their wing, but a lot of scoring chances are going to waste because the guy simply can't finish.
How many times has Spezza set someone up in the slot today only to have them whiff on the puck?
Agreed, you need a guy like a Jere Lehtinen to be a defensive conscience on a scoring line (not saying that it's feasible for Sens to go out and get him or someone like him, just making a point). Taking a purely defensive player and sticking him on there is not always such a great idea. Besides, Spezza and Heatley have both been backchecking their butts off the last few games I've caught, so it's not like he's that needed. I'd bump a guy like Schaefer up, but he really shouldn't even be playing, let alone getting increased minutes. Neil maybe?
What amazes me is how good the Rangers' team defence is. They're even missing Tyutin, and still they've been making it hard for the Sens to get pucks on Lundqvist.
