I love those lines ! It really doesn't hurt us at all to make experiments against a western conference team and it could pay off big time if they all click together.
They're clicking and I'm happy for Perreault that he's getting that chance and producing. He's a real classy guy and he has worked his butt off when it was time to since he's been put on this line.
Even though I dislike Dagenais I feel like he's in the best possible position to succeed. He has two guys with a lot of hockey sense, who can create plays by themselves and make sweet passes. He's a good fit with Kovalev and Ribeiro IMO. Now he has to be very alert and watch out for those passes that come out of nowhere. He has to position himself well and he could score a lot of goals. It has the making of a poor man Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Hull line. Dagenais is a better fit than Ryder on such a line.
Like others have said Ryder wasn't clicking with Kovalev and Ribs because those guys are puck carriers. They like having the puck a lot. With Dowd and Bulis you have two great forecheckers who can put some pressure on while playing some good defense. Ryder will have more opportunities to score goals with those guys IMO.
I feel a little bad for Bégin and Ward but I'm sure that Bulis or someone else will be double shifted to play with these two later in the game.
Now those lines look great in my head, let's see if they bring it on the ice :p
And with Souray coming back on friday...
