I was calling it late last season.
I was hoping our coach would break up the first line in order to make experiments.
I mean we were out of the playoffs and losing a couple extra games wouldn't make a difference.
I would definitely break up the top line to generate more balanved offense.
I would like to see the following this year... if there is a year.
Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta
Cole - Desharnais - Bourque
Moen - Eller - Armstrong
Prust - x - Whyte
Max Pac has had success wth Pleky in the past. Gionta as well.
Desharnais is still surrounded by 2 big guys in Cole and Bourque to protect him and open up the ice for him to keep making plays.
And Eller gets 2 energy wingers one of them being Moen with which he had some chemistry at times last year.
Bourque is my worry in the top 9 but we have no choice.
I just hope playing with a couple of veterans can straighten him out or at least Cole can keep him honest.
I'd like to see these lines in training camp or early on in season games. See how it pans out... I believe 10 games together will help the players gel and th coach to get a better idea of where they stand.
Anyways my 2 cents.
