Who gets booted out of the top 9 when Briere and Pacioretty return?
 
Obviously, Leblanc will be sent back down when this happens, but what about Bournival? If he keeps producing you cannot possibly remove him off the Plekanec line.

Other players will probably be injured by then.

marvelousmotion 10-29-2013 11:50 PM

I don't think a lot of people would disagree that Desharnais deserves to be the odd man out.

Obviously DD should be the one to get booted but as long as Brière is out Prust and Moen will be on the fourth line. Let's all hope he's getting traded before the return of the injured players.

SirClintonPortis 10-30-2013 12:04 AM

Boot out one of Briere or DD.

JohnLennon 10-30-2013 12:05 AM

Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Eller-Gallagher
Galchenyuk-Briere-Bournival
Prust-Desharnais-Moen

These lines are probably not accurate, but I think Desharnais is the odd man out.

MD thaivuN 10-30-2013 12:06 AM

I still think DD is far better than Briere; however, Both should get booted

Crusherkgb 10-30-2013 12:24 AM

DD and LL

id go with
Gally Eller Chuckie
Bournival Pleks Gio
Bourque Briere Patches
Prust White/DD Parros/Moen

I think Briere with 2 big wingers can turn out to be a pretty effective goal scoring line. The EGG line will soon start scoring again once we have a 3rd line capable of scoring. That will make us a very hard team to compete against. Bournival emergence on pleks line has turned our number 1 shutdown line into a constant scoring threat and Gio seems be playing alot better since his kid got better and with Bournival's energy.
I really hope we get to see this team completely healthy for a few games.

One should never expect the Habs to be healthy.

WhiskeySeven 10-30-2013 01:01 AM

Briere? Is he definitively coming back?

Tyrus 10-30-2013 01:04 AM

Isn't this like the third concussion in a year and a half for Brière? Guy might not be back so soon, if at all.

Just in time for the PO, where he's actualy relevant.

DAChampion 10-30-2013 01:23 AM

Briere would probably harm us in the playoffs, but at least the people thinking that his career playoff performance is meaningful would be given an educational lesson.

Bargainbin4Pres 10-30-2013 01:33 AM

Should be Desharnais, but it'll be someone else. I just feel it.

Or indeed any hockey team.

It's a game where huge men fly around on skates hitting each other, there will always be injuries.

Anyway, DD should be the odd man out.

MDN 10-30-2013 03:12 AM

It better be DD

This.

The entire team healthy for more than 2 - 3 consecutive games is unlikely.

Natey 10-30-2013 05:19 AM

Desharnais or Briere.

Desharnais can't score, Briere has no effort. Couldn't care less who sits between them at this point.

Pacioretty - Eller - Gallagher
Bournival - Plekanec - Gionta
Galchenyuk - Desharnais/Briere - Bourque
Prust - White - Moen
Parros, Desharnais/Briere

Markov - Emelin
Subban - Gorges
Murray - Diaz
Bouillon

Price
Budaj

Leblanc and Holland have both played extremely well so far in my opinion, but there just won't be room.

DAChampion 10-30-2013 05:28 AM

Leblanc, Holland, and Parros should all play ahead of briere and desharnais.

RC51 10-30-2013 05:47 AM

Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
Pacioretty-Eller-Gallagher
Galchenyuk-Briere-Bournival
Prust-Desharnais-Moen


I like my setup better
Galchenyuk Eller Gallagher ... don't mess with what works
Bournival Plekanec Gionta ... don't mess with what works
Pacioretty Desharnais Prust... Desharnais needs big wingers to get going.against big teams
Pacioretty Desharnais Briere... against smaller fast teams
Moen White Parros... against BIG teams

Subban /Markov
Gorges / Emelin
Diaz / Murray
Bouillion / Tinordi ... soon to be Beaulieu / Tinordi

SO against BIG teams Prust Moen White Parros Murray even Tinordi
Call ups Leblanc Blundin for now.
I love Prust but the way he plays all out he gets injured sometimes Habs need him in the playoffs for sure so he gets a rest against smaller teams.

Of course all things change when players are injured.
Bourque will be inserted as soon as MB makes a trade and I am sure theirs one coming.

Your setup's missing #17. Fix that.

He can tell the future. Bourque will be injured by the time the others come back

Leblanc.

I thnk Bournival is here to stay. On the TOp-9. Most accurately, on the first line.

Patches will never play on a 3rd line. Forget it right now.
