Since we dont have Koivu our 2nd line especially higgins and ryder have been non-existant. Although our 3rd line of smoke kosto and begin have played very well we cant count on these grinders to produce much more offense, it's not their role and it shouldn't be expected of them. Latendresse lapierre and dandenault have played well but they havent had much success offensively in this series. Now since koivu isn't going to be back to give the habs a much needed offensive surge why not put in grabovski? hes fast and skilled and showed in his second stint in montreal his offensive upside, and he cant do any less than higgins or ryder are doing right now. Either way the habs need a change IMO. Anyone else agree?
Why do you say with such certainty that Koivu won't be back?? From all reports I've seen, there's a very strong chance he'll be playing tonight.

By the way, the Bruins would knock Grabovsky off the puck very easily.
