Let's see if Glencross can make the most of his game tonight.

Wasn't suprised to see Lindstom sent down. My only question is still what they do with Murray. The easy answer is to send him down.

Ya, I'm not really surprised, he will be back as a depth player. Glencross will play tonight as well. We still have guys on IR so more movements will be on the way when they all return.

Per Tom Reed: The Blue Jackets are carrying 22 players, one below the league maximum. They still have three players on IR: Fredrik Modin (back spasms), Ole-Kristian Tollefsen (neck) and Andrew Murray (concussion).

Modin is likely to play either Thursday or Saturday. Modin’s return would not necessitate another player being sent to the minors. But after that it becomes a one for one swap.

I think Glencross will be "auditioned" for a lineup spot tonight against the 'Nucks. If he plays well and does what Hitch asks of him (whatever that might be) then he won't get the automatic axe when Murray comes back.

I like this battle of the depth guys that is being set up.

GLENNER VS MURR

Chances are, when Modin comes back one of these guys sits with Shelley.

I also talked with him NYE. He said he took the puck to the face in the Calgary game he had the winning goal in. He said it was a deflection off the glass and then hit him in the face.

I see Westcott getting waived by next week.
imo, Methot is too good to send down.

I wonder what the harm is in keeping Duvie on the scratch.
I mean, how long can our current 6 Dmen continue without significant injuries?

The problem is you got Modin, OKT, and Murray all on IR. You only have one available roster spot.

Obviously the one goes to Modin. So you got to send 2 down. If it were me I would send Duvie and Murray. Sucks for Murray but hes the odd man out.

We have 8 D-Men on our roster right now, one is on IR.

if this team wants to stay in the playoff race, they will keep who is proven... Lindstrom isn't NHL proven, neither is Murray, maybe Glencross too and Boll for that matter and Brassard...

If they are serious about the playoffs, they will need more proven players, not guys that maybe but aren't quite yet.

Who on this team is proven? The only ones who have been in the playoffs are Fedorov, Foote, Modin, and Peca. Right?

If this team wants to stay in the playoff race, and it's safe to asume it does, then it will play the players who give it the best chance to win. I know that's your assumption as well, but I really don't think it's that simple.

There is almost always a couple of players that are unproven that play on a team during a playoff stretch. It's part of player development.

There are jus too many players with one way contracts healthy right now. Hitch and Howson have already said that when Brassard comes up, he's here to stay. This seems to be the most reasonable 12 forwards when everyone is healthy though.
He's key momentum, he plays hockey at it's most basic ideal, but he does it well, real well. I'm not ready to send him down. I wonder what'll we'll do with Glennx as well

I think the real problem is that the "normal" candidates for being sent back down are the young'uns like Methot, Boll and Brassard. But this year the young'uns have been playing so well and so consistently that we can't imagine sending them down.

To be honest I'm just glad I'm not the one who has to make these decisions. Though if I had to, I'd dump Duvie and probably Murray.

Lets face it Duvie's never going to be the same. I like the guy but hes done, he is this years one eyed demon.

Send him down, if he gets picked up on waivers no huge loss.

Ok one step at a time who do you sit for Thursday when Modin comes back. I say Manny.

Nash - Novo - Modin (hitch's hardon, Nash and Modin)
Zherdev - Peca - Vybes (why break up perfection)
Chims - Feds - Fritsche (Feds plays better when people around him move faster)
Boll - Brass - GlenX (really like the sound of this, one crazy, one net crasher, one passer)

I have a hard time sitting Manny. His faceoff percentage is just too important, especially at the end of a tight game in the defensive zone. He is a faceoff specialist and that is huge.

I agree; Hitch ain't sitting Manny. he's just too important to this team.

I wouldn't expect to see Modin on the 1st line his first game back either. Give him a couple of games with less heavy lifting before you go throwing him up there.

It isn't a bad thing that Lindstrom returns to Syracuse. I still think he is not quite ready for prime time, so going back to the Cuse keeps him playing lot's of minutes and putting the finishing touches on his game. It should also be noted that Syracuse is fighting for the playoffs, and Lindstrom will be a huge help for them.

And I would put Duvie on waivers with the hope that he would clear and head down to the Cuse. I would leave him there the rest of the season to help him refind his game and gain some confidence after the head issues. His veteran leadership would only serve to help the Syracuse D men.

Peca took the important one last night. Even *gasp* Feds is pretty good at faceoff's.

We have a center glut. I doubt they sit Manny, but there are others that can fill in, quite nicely, taking faceoff's.

Brassard > Manny on the PP.

With Novotny able to play wing, I'm not sure it's much of an issue.

Based on those lines above... Personally I would drop Vyborny down with Brassard, keep Feds on the top line, move Novotny back with Zherdev, and have Glencross enjoy some more time in the pressbox.

Lindstrom wasn't bad, he looks ready for some nice 3rd/4th line action, with some 2nd line fill in. In a perfect world we would have had room for him and he wouldn't have had to come in and play on the top line. I don't know how much more ready he's going to get before he just needs NHL minutes to continue his developement.

In the end he lost out due to math. His play wasn't great enough to put someone on waivers to keep him.
