You know, if the top line scores with regularity, we wouldn't have to worry about which 3rd liner is better.

I hated watching all the ice time that Juneau got last year. It really started to get to me. We are so worried about other teams dominant line that we forget that we need to score too. On top of that Juneau couldn't win a face off, handle any top line center physically or chip in with an imporant goal now and again.

I want to see the top two lines rolling until we score a goal or two, and an occassional appearance from the third line when we are UP by a few goals. If we fall behind, a shift from the fourth line where they hit everything that moves, and then the two lines pressuring for a goal.

Playing a shut down line (or strategy) when you are down a goal or two is the most riduclous thing I saw the Habs doing repeatedly last year. I hope we will not see that again next season.
