i don't know and every time that i start trying to come up with new combinations i get a headache. the bottom line is that two players need to sit. the most likely candidates seem to be brown, barney, cowan, and pirnes.
a few things i might try, were i in murray's place:
1. make avery the fourth line center again. he asked for that earlier this year, and responded well initially before his play tailed off; he may be due for another shot, perhaps between brown and barney.
2. i would keep carter with either lapperierre or avery and definitely in an enery role; he needs to improve his effort and intensity, and if today was any indication, then we should see good things from him in such a role.
as for defensemen, i think modry should be benched. in his defense, his play was better today with visnovsky the great next to him, but i still feel that his effort is lacking. let gleason keep the job that he has earned. if modry comes back after a two-game benching and plays with some fire, then excellent, but at the moment, he's not performing as well as he can.
