As for Trotz and his egos comment, I couldn't agree more, but I'd also like to see Trotzy look at the ice and actually go with the guys who are really earning it. Sully is terrible right now - I know he's coming back off the injury, but...... and the Smitty line got beat like a drum last night - it was effective with Spaling, not nearly has effective in the other combinations we've had. With Goc back I wouldn't mind seeing us roll 4 lines that can actually contribute and play 2-way hockey - and if that means Mueller centering that 4th line so-be-it.....
