If we weren't already missing Kovalev, I'd almost be ready to agree with you. But the combination of both of their losses really screws up our depth. I don't know how anyone can believe we'll be fine without them.
Let's not forget that Foligno has played most of the year on the 2nd line. It wasn't until Michalek got hurt that Clouston tried Regin on the first line & when Michalek came back he went to the 2nd line & Foligno dropped down to the 4th. It's not like he hasn't played there & IMO he has more chemistry with Fisher than Michalek had. We still have three good lines & it's the 4th line that plays limited minutes & brings energy when needed which they also did last game. It shouldn't be that different from the other night but the Sens will have to elevate their game another notch & match Pittsburgh's intensity which they can do.
He has the work ethic, he doesn't have the same talent as St louis and is easier to knock off the puck than my grandmother.
I think the only way he can contribute offensively is off the rush when he gets into the zone with speed. Even then he might get angled off easily, but he will be effin' useless once the puck gets in the corners/along the boards.
