When you have the puck as much as Richards does your bound to have more turnovers than most guys. With that being said he had a brutal game last night, but he'll bounce back.

I think the team needs a shake up. The Hartnell-Carter-Lupul line has fallen flat and I'm not sure what to expect out of the Carcillo-Giroux-Powe/Nodl line. I say we put Giroux on Carter's wing with Lupul and make a Carcillo-Powe-Hartnell checking line just to see what happens.

Odds are there will be a dumb penalty every other time those guys are on the ice but with the exception of the third period of the Bruins game this team has not been clicking in the offensive zone. When they try to carry the puck in they turn it over and when they dump it in they are losing the battles in deep. I'm sick of Richards, Gagne, Carter, and Lupul trying to finesse their way into the zone, I want some hard work and crisp passing and maybe shaking things up a bit will send a message.
