jonas640: - Kris Versteeg not on the ice this morning
- John Mitchell has taken Versteeg's place on the 2nd line.
- Caputi called up from Marlies
Anybody got any more information on this? Injury, benched, or just a missed practice? I know Versteeg's been a whipping boy as of late but I don't think anyone is hoping he'll be out of the line up for Mitchell.
I can live with Armstrong out. He hasnt been bad at all, but I think Sjoestrom has been better so far this season. Im just worried about Versteeg. he has obvious talent, and is maybe the best puckhandler on the team save Kaberle, but he just seems to make the guys around him worse.
This is a huge test for Phil, he was clearly uncomfortable playing in Boston last season, even against them in our own rink, he was basically useless. Can't have your best player not show up against a division rival.
