Gionta Returns to Action

Standard Spin: Brian Gionta returns to action Saturday against Tampa Bay, his first game since Dec. 8th, when he suffered a lower body injury.  The Canadiens' captain is not having a massive fantasy season and GMs should probably monitor this situation and choose wisely between activating Gionta, and taking a wait-and-see approach.  He could light it up in the first couple games based purely on adrenalin, but he could just as likely return to his more regular playing ways of late.  Gionta has only 15 points in 29 games this year, and last season he had just 46 points in a full 82 games.
