He would experiment for the last 2 weeks of the season, then, BAM! The real deal. Julien's teams were the most prepared of all teams in the playoffs.
If his combos are good (which they could be, because Ryder will score on the 3rd line), you'll see the Habs have 3 scoring lines. Great! Not a lot of East Conference teams have 3 scoring lines. Only the Sens.
Great comments. Totally agree with you in the regards as CJ don't care about doing things his way (benching Ribs, changing lines playing whoever in net...he will do what he thinks is best for this team to win period).
CJ reminds me of a NJ Devils type coach. The stars do not have to play with each other to be successful, some of the best players play best with the hard working guys that make room out there for the better player to get the team goals and points. CJ is a stratagist and a deep thinker, he knows what he is doing!
