    Imagine if Josefson is able to make it back before the playoffs?

    I had a good feeling about Henrique. I didn't think he would light it up like this but he got it done at every level he played at, you had to think he would eventually adjust to the speed of the nhl.

    I love Josefson. But these back to back injuries during this development time is terrible. I really hope he can overcome this because he has a Zajac-like poise and awareness that is not too common.

    I don't think it will ruin his potential, it just takes a year off his development. With Henrique stepping up this allows Josefson to not be thrown into the top 6. Worst case scenario is Josefson ends up being a 3rd line center and his game is already developed enough for that. I'm also curious because Elias said that he would prefer to be playing center now, so what happens when we have Zajac-Henrique-Elias-Josefson as our centers? Do we switch one to wing or do we just role 4 quality lines?

    Josefson reminds me of Elias. I hope he can become half the player that Patty is/was

    I never saw a "stud" blueliner get the least amount of icetime out of 6 man unit.
    And you don't think that has anything to do with our recent rash of injuries on the defense?

    Sal is now playing in the top 4 because of the injuries, and I'm sure that the 50 seconds or whatever Volch played in the last game against Florida skewes those numbers as well.

    Those #'s were identical when both of them were playing together on the same pairing. All I'm trying to say is that if Volchenkov can't surpass Bryce Salvador in icetime when both players are healthy, something's wrong.

    why not? bryce was a solid *** d man back in the day and has been playing pretty damn good if you ask me. I mean yea you want volchenkov to obviously get more time than him but if salvys earning it im all for it. i don't think hes as big as a liability as you would think.
