In the interest of getting those guys going:
Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
This always were a good shutdown line...able to bring some offensive
Not necessarely a 1st line here.
Pacioretty - Eller - Desharnais
Two big guys with the small one. DD on the wing seems like a bad idea...
But if he were to be try on the wing, Eller would be the best centerman to
play with him cause he can take some of the physical load along the boards and
behind the net.
Galchenyuk - Briere - Gallagher
Briere on the wing....not working good. I bring him back at center with the kids
on a semi-sheltered all offensive line. I prefer Eller in the middle of those kids though! But Briere is an offensive center and would be better than DD IMO.
But in the end.....we are working around the problem.
We all talked about it all summer:
Too much small players on our top 9
Now we see what the problem is....
I don't always agree with you, however, I love these lines.
Moen-Bournival-Prust as the 4th.
