Keep Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kostitsyn together!

In fact, my lines when we are 100% healthy would be:

Cammalleri - Gomez - Gionta
Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
D`Agostini - Metropolit - Moen
Latendresse - Lapierre - Laraque


Markov - O'Byrne
Hamrlik - Spacek
Gill - Gorges


Note: Send White, Pyatt, Bergeron and Leach down, keep Sergei down all season as well
Mara has been solid. His -8 number is in no way representative of his play. He averages 20-21min per game, he's our Dman with the least turnovers. Like the +/-, the turnover stat can be tossed aside saying it's not such a great stat. But for a Defensive Dman that usually keeps his play simple, it's an important stat.
In no way is he our 7th Dman.

O'Byrne was good yesterday, but he played 2games overall. Gill and him should be the 6-7th Dmen.

At this point, Lapierre and Latendresse aren't even playing better than Pyatt and White. So, wouldn't be so quick as the assign them to 4th line. D'Ago wasn't terrific either, so once he's back he better step it up.
