Hey, the fourth line is working, no reason to adjust any of the three that aren’t.

Wakiji tweets,

Nielsen days he feels good, does not know if he is in yet.

Daley said he is ready to go but does not believe he is playing tomorrow.

HSJ tweets,

Sounds like if Frans Nielsen ready to play Tuesday, Evgeny Svechnikov will be sent down.

Alex Biega in Tuesday lineup with Dennis Cholowski.

Vancouver media will be happy with Biega in the lineup, many think highly of him, team player.

Curious about Biega.

Daley and Ericsson deserve respect as veterans who have
managed long careers but neither seems capable of staying
truly healthy for long, if ever. We know the results in recent seasons haven’t been good as they’ve aged and struggled with injuries.

If young D are going to get true auditions they need some
stability beside them. Cholowski has seem the league some through trial and error.
But Kaski and Seider have barely seen NA ice let alone NHL ice.
Bowey is still sort of a question mark.

Maybe Green will be gone at the trade deadline or after the season and maybe Cholowski will be ready to take on more minutes and pressure.
We need to start seeing what we have in the young guys behind him and get them some experience. But not in a helter skelter chaotic intro to the league that doesn’t help them gradually learn how to play the right way.

I hope Svechnikov took the time with the big team and brief boost in income as the pat on the back it was and uses it to play his game in big minutes with the Griffins. He will be back again with a much better chance to get into the lineup before long.
