Travis Moen - Dominic Moore - Sergei Kostitsyn
Mathieu Darche - Maxim Lapierre - Tom Pyatt

Défenseurs :

Roman Hamrlik - Jaroslav Spacek
Andrei Markov - Marc-André Bergeron
Hal Gill - Josh Gorges
It's good to see Sergei Kostitsyn back onboard and I am a big fan of this 4th line: Pyatt - Lapierre - Darche.

In his last 5 games, as a D, Bergeron shouldered ~21 minutes per game, 2G-2A with a +5 while playing against the #1 or #2 line of our opponents. We badly need Markov AND Bergeron: without them, this D squad seriously lacks offensive knack.


Bergeron: 5 shots on goal against the Leafs

Gill: 5 shots on goal in his last 18 games played

Gorges: 5 shots on goal in his last 15 games played

I know that Martin puts a lot of emphasis on the play "without the puck" and I also know the value of "keeping it simple" in some particular situations but, come on: attacking our opponent’s net is also part of the game... right?
