Clark Out, Fehr Questionable, Flash Up

Per Tarik, Chris Clark is out 7-10 days and Eric Fehr is day-to-day with a groin injury. With the injuries, the team has recalled Tomas Flesichmann.

The obvious move would be to put Flash and Ben Clymer into the lineup for Clark and Fehr and shuffle around the wings a little bit.

The less obvious move would be to play Flash or Richard Zednik on the top line, the other on the second line, give Steve Eminger a sweater and semi-double-shift Alex Ovechkin and Alex Semin. This would get the Alexes more ice-time (which they've needed lately) and would allow the d-corps to be fresher for the back-to-back games against the Devils. Oh yeah, and it would get Steve Eminger in the lineup. If Emmy can't crack the lineup now, I may be more inclined to believe the rumors that he may be on his way out the door.

1) OK let's see what Fleischman can bring to the table. Hasn't impressed so far in his call ups the last 2 years.
2) Where/when will Chris Bourque get ONE call up? Almost all the prospects have at least been given a game or two the past 2 seasons, yet Chris has yet to see one NHL game
3) Yes he is undersized, but having seen him live in person a number of times he has considerable speed/quickness. Now that the season is all but over why not allow him a game or two?
