Steve Begin--Saku Koivu--Alex Kovalev

Simple. Kovalev to score, Koivu to set it up, Begin to energize and give them room.

Line 2:

Richard Zednik--Mike Ribeiro--Craig Rivet

Again. Zednik to score, Ribeiro to set it up, Rivet to give them room. Rivet playing forward isn't such an outlandish concept, he's played it before, when we had injury problems.

Line 3:

Jan Bulis--Jim Dowd--Michael Ryder

Bulis for speed, Dowd for grinding, Ryder for scoring. I know Ryder on the 3rd line isn't what some want, but he did pretty well when CJ had him playing there a couple weeks before the end of the season.

Line 4:

Niklas Sundstrom--Yanic Perreault--Jason Ward

Limited Even Strength time for this line, except for Ward, PP time for Perreault, PK time for Sundstrom.

Defence:

Sheldon Souray--Stephane Quintal
Andrei Markov--Mike Komisarek
Francis Bouillon--Patrice Brisebois




Powerplay

Line 1

Yanic Perreault--Saku Koivu--Mike Komisarek

Alex Kovalev--Sheldon Souray


Perreault's job is simple, win the face-off then get open. Komisarek, Get your big ass in front of the net and make sure Raycroft can't see a damn thing. Koivu works his magic. No change on defence.

Line 2

Michael Ryder--Mike Ribeiro--Richard Zednik

Andrei Markov--Patrice Brisebois


Energy and Pressure.

Penalty Killing

Any combination of Koivu, Begin, Dowd, Sundstrom, Ward, Bulis, Rivet, Quintal, Markov, Bouillon that works.


What do you think?
That's why you aren't in CJ's seat!
