For the most part I think the lines are okay. I would like to see Gerbe in a more offensive role. But what I would really like Lindy to do is manage the zone starts and faceoffs much differently. Most of our centers are terrible at faceoffs, and we have some wingers who are at least decent at them.
VHP - Pominville takes faceoffs.
FES - Ennis I guess? Maybe someone can teach Foligno to win faceoffs.
Gerbe Grigorenko Ott - Ott takes FO.
Hecht (Scott) McCormick Ellis (Kaleta) - McCormick takes FO.
Line 2 should mainly get offensive zone starts. Line 3 I'm okay with in either zone, and the first line should get as much ice time as they can handle. Line 4 should see limited ice time unless some fighting is needed.
I'm okay with trying to get the young centers some experience, but having Cody Hodgson be our #1 faceoff guy has resulted in the Sabres being the worst faceoff team in the league, and that causes real puck possesion problems. Let the experienced guys win some draws and work the young guys in gradually.
