3) Get Carcillo back on 3rd/4th line. He obviously cannot hang on first line.
4) Find some way to utilize Shelley or throw him down a flight of stairs (LTIR).
JVR - Richards - Carter
Leino - Briere - Hartnell
Carcillo - Giroux - Zherdev
Nodl - Betts - Powe
I agree with what you are saying but no way Nodl gets a start over Carcillo or Shelley on the 4th line during the regular seasson. This may be a situation where Laviolette has to cut the theory that three "scoring" lines are the way to go and Carter may have to move back to center while Richards takes on more of a captain role by anchoring a line with some more grit but not counted on to provide the scoring depth, plus utilize him on the PP/PK.
And get Bobrovsky some back to back starts in games with meaning, let Bouch hit up the Isles and the dregs of the league, but put Bobrovsky in games against top competition.
