from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun,
Not only is Paddock looking to get more of a contribution from McAmmond and Donovan, the duo of centre Chris Kelly (one goal in 13 games) and winger Antoine Vermette (one goal in 14) haven’t done anything to earn extra ice time, either.
“I’ve said from the start I don’t want to play (Alfredsson) that much, but you have to do that during the course of a game,” said Paddock. “The other side of it is you have to develop roles for other players and they have to develop roles within the team. I think we’re still somewhat struggling for that.
“We’re still trying to find guys to contribute to the play at a little bit higher level and a little bit better in certain situations. You can’t be a two- or three-line team. We’re still searching for contributions from the third and fourth line.”
