Clifford (Gagne)/Fraser/Nolan

Look familiar? Clifford and Gagne can fight it out for the fourth line. The lines as constituted above got us a 16-4 playoff run. Richardson is the odd man out, although he was there on the fourth line for most of the run.

I just don't see any reason to change up the lines with everyone healthy.
People want Gagne in the top six, that's what this whole 4-5 page argument is about. Putting Gagne in the top six pushes someone out of it. Most likely Penner, who you are not going to play on the fourth line.

I happen to agree with you. No reason to have Gagne in the top six(so he can find his game).

When Kopitar comes back I suggested going back to the playoff lineup, and peeps said Gagne should stay in the top six. I disagree.

The Lineup I posted was an example of how Gagne staying in the top six screws up the playoff lineup's
