Huh? A bit of an overreaction.
When Betts went down, Pyorala moved into that spot and played well with Carcillo and Lappy, setting both of them up for prime chances.
Nodl-Ross-Laliberte will get 5 minutes as 4th line, more if they do well or its a blow out either way. At least all the Phantoms are together, what's wrong with that - they know each other a bit.
With the top two lines, all he's done is switch Carter and Richards, giving Carter back his long time winger, Hartnell, and Richards back a guy, Briere, he's played with before.
JVR has been great with whoever he plays with.
Wow, what a shakeup?
