    Solid hits too. That man finishes his checks.

    And Boro will do a better job than Cowen -- I assume Cowen is the one coming out.  On the other hand Cowen played pretty well when paired up with Ceci for a few games, so I'd be OK with sitting Wiercioch instead.

    You assume he'll bench Cowen, but he hasn't lately, so perhaps Cowen has more rope than we think.

    I assume because Boro was skating with Wideman at practice; Cowen has been paired up with Wideman. However while Wiercioch was sitting Cowen was playing with Ceci.

    Maybe the rules of not having sub-mediocre D are:

    - do not play Cowen/Boro as a pairing; especially on the PK
    - do not ask Boro to play anywhere but on the left side, 3rdpairing
    - do not have both Cowen and Wiercioch in the lineup unless you are playing, umm,

    There, I just saved Melnyk the $4M he would have had to pay for Murray to get a top-4 D-man. I'll take 5% up-front and the other 5% when we are back in second place in the Division.

    Yeah, he was on line 3 for a while and I'm not a huge fan of that due to no offence, but when Boro takes his rightful place next to Wideman, I'm hoping he can be a semi-permanent 4th liner.

    Dizzy knows the deal now, if he wants to be an NHLer, he must finish checks and chip in 5 goals a year, give or take.

    Now...about Chiasson and his inability to score if his life depended on it...

    Or...if Murray isn't full of Dung, which I think he is, then teams are actually asking about Cowen - and you take a deal, no matter what it is and absolve yourself of ~7.5 million from here to next off-season.

    I would doubt Cowen would get claimed if we put him on waivers, but if a team did, they'd be doing us a favour. The guy is clearly an outsider in that dressing room and on the ice when he poses as a defenceman.

    Maybe Cameron should have played *him* as a forward. That's probably the easiest way to limit his ice time -- play him on the 4th line.
