Who sits for Prust?

It would be interesting to see how that works. I would lean towards more size and grit for a 4th line centre.

Naaah. Thought about it, but too pricey.

Yeah, I like that too

I was just "winding down" before my nap.

Yes, I think it does make sense. The kid line looks very good. Briere gets to play his natural position and is sheltered by 2 big, skilled wingers. The 3rd line is a a good defensive line with the ability to contribute to the offense. The 4th line is tough and solid. DD still gets his $14M over the next 4 years. What's not to like?

OK. I'll join the "lines" debate. First of all, I have nothing but respect for all that DD has accomplished against long odds, but I don't see a place for him in the starting line up now or in the future. Here's what I'd like to see (assuming a healthy lineup) Chucky Eller Gally Pax Briere Bourque Prust Plex Gionta Moen Bournival/White Parros Gorges PK Markov Emelin Murray Diaz PP1 Chucky Eller Gally Emelin PK PP2 Pax Briere/Plex Bourque Markov Diaz PK1 Prust Plex Murray Gorges PK2 Moen Gionta Emelin PK

I agree with this plan. We should try to balance out the lines. I would even consider moving Eller up to 2nd line and dropping DD down at some point just to see how DD responds with less skilled linemates. We need to know this to determine DD's value before signing him next year. Not crazy about Gomez on the 4th line. I'm all for 2nd chances but he's not a 4th line type player. Stick with Nokes and send Gomez down.

OK. So let's think outside the box. Since there seems to be a trend towards giving Gomez one more chance in a new environment, why not give him the best possible chance. Put him on the top line though pre-season and the 1st 10 games or so and see if he has it or not. Patches - Gomer - Cole Eller - Pleks - Gio Bourque - DD - Moen Prust - White - Armstrong Spare - Nokes
- Comment on Eller signs for two years (2012-07-07 18:52:15)
Let's assume our lineup is as follows. Patches - DD - Cole Bourque - Pleks - Gio Moen - Eller - Armstrong Prust - Nokes - White Gorges - Subban Markov - Emelin Kaberle - Bouillon How many goals would you expect from each Line? How many from the defence?
