For us that has to be Lapierre or Metro. We don't have another option. I'm not sold on the 3rd line either but because, after getting rid of Latendresse, and now sending down Max, we've opened up two left wing spots on the bottom two lines. Sergei will take one spot (but also plays right wing) and Bergeron the other. To me, this opens the door for someone with size who can play that 3rd line roll and jump up if we need size in our top 6 in the playoffs. Something like:

Hartnell - Lapierre - Sergei
Bergeron - Metro - Moen
(Darche/White/Pyatt as 13th)

With Gainey's moves recently, it appears he's trying to open up a spot. Latendresse, MaxPac, D'Agostini, and Laraque all removed from the lineup.
