Staple the Kopitar, Brown, Gagne line to the bench the first 10 minutes of the second.

Stoll has looked better the last few games, put him back as 3rd line center, and but the young guys King and Nolan back on the 4th.

Cliffy, love him but no higher then the third line. Brown needs a few shifts with Richards now that Ritchards is turning the curve. Let Richards get him going.

We are a top 6 speedy game breaker short. Other then Carter we have no one, Gagne was one 4 years ago but we need someone to back off the defense other then Carter. Kopitar is capable but his head is up his sewage disposal pipe.

Positives - Carter - very solid all year
Richards - looking better, more involved, not gassed
Stoll - throwing body, taking draws, at least head is in game
Slava - good second year progression, will get better yet
Bernier - two good games, there if we need him
Ellerby - meshing well, good size and stride, just need to see him mad


Negatives - Sutter - hate to say it, too many bench penalties, no real offensive plan, teams are well aware of our system and prepared yet we play the same dump and chase.

Defense - cant get on them too much, they have been decimated injury wise, but we need more. I realize they all know our goalie but Doughty and Slava gotta go meet the opposition goalie once in a while on the PP

The PP. - boring, predictable, played on the blue line instead of the hash marks

The bottom 6 - keep Cliffy, Nolan and maybe Stoll, the rest can go.
