I can't figure out why these lines aren't being used. Pouliot-Eller duo should be getting 3rd line minutes and Lapierre-Halpern duo should be getting 4th line duty, not the other way around.

Let Eller-Pouliot make some mistakes gain some chemistry and learn even if it means losing a game or two. It's better that by playoff time they're killing it then not.

I'm sure JM will make this change soon enough though as everything seems to be falling into place lately.

Next year as much as I've loved Darche this season he'll likely be let go or someone else in the bottom 6 will. I'm pretty confident White can crack the line up by latest camp next year.

Darche is the only forward now in our top 9 that's more of a situational top 9 player than a real top 9 player, however he's been playing well and has been showing that those situations come up more often than not. He's doing what he does well and I'd keep him if we could and he continues to play like he has.

That being said it would be for a 4th line role next year probably.
