Jokinen expected to return tomorrow, Crombeen returned to Iowa

January 23, 2008

So apparently Tippett has decided to go back to an experiment that did not turn out well earlier this season; having Morrow, Ribbons and Eriksson on a line together.  Maybe they’ll mesh better this time now that Eriksson has finally come into his own.  We’ll see, but I’m not too fond of it.

Mittens is now back on a line with his fellow finnja’s, Jokinen and Hagman.  I’m not sure whether I’m excited or sad.  The PBC line is no more, but at the same time we have our Finnja line back.  RIP PBC.  RIP.

The other lines were Ott-Modano-Halpern (which has proved to be a good line) and Barch-Lundqvist-Barnes.

In other news, BJ Crombeen has been returned to the Iowa Stars with Jussi’s return.  Lehtinen did not skate today, but is expected to join the Stars on their next roadtrip after the All-Star break.

Brad Winchester also missed practice today due to illness.  Me no likey F5 being sick.
