No need to mess with the lineup. Once he's healthy there's no reason to throw him back in, all four lines have some nice chemistry going already.
What? Yeah there is a need to throw him in there. If we are playing a skilled team we can keep him out. If we play St. Louis or physical teams I want Carcillo, Mayers, Bickell & maybe even Bollig on the ice.
As a coach you don't just keep the bottom six the same. You play those lines according to the opponent.
Overall, you have the right idea not messing with what works. I don't think you can be that rigid and just sit Carcillo.
Guys need days off. I'm ok with a rotation of these players sitting one out of every four or five games. Bickell, Bollig, Carcillo, Mayers, Kruger, Frolik, Brookbank
Guys that I would be ok sitting one game every 8-10 games: Saad, Stalberg, Bolland, Rozsival
Changes are going to be made. Only guys that should not get days off are Toews, Kane, Sharp, Hossa... Keith, Seabrook, Hjalmarsson, Leddy & Oduya
