Begin-Plekanec-Murray

With these lines, the offensive pressure is off of Plekanec and Begin is back on the wing. Not only might this switch help our second line, I think it makes our 4th line much better and puts Latendresse with two guys who are good, cerebral hockey players and already have chemistry together.

It will be interesting to see what lines we come back with vs. Ottawa.

I agree this move could be huge for the Canadiens overall team offense.
Also is Latendress is having an off game Plekanec can be rewarded or used later in close games as he is better defensivley.
