I wonder how much longer it takes before Carbo breaks the 1st line. Guy has too much patience for their play.

Higgins should be playing checking line - right now he has no business playing with puck. He doesnt get shots off and his passes are all over there. Ryder is still using his main asset the shot, but to me he seems tired, making even worse decisions than usual. He should be getting less minutes with the second line.

Koivu has been doing his parts, even if Penguins game must have taken some energy from him, he still wins faceoffs, gets off few shots and even hits. But needs to have his wingers changed ... maybe its time to put him and Kovalev together - to make a statement they are in the same boat. As for the other winger, if we arent getting any outside help (Kostitsyn/trade) how about rewarding Perezhogin for his good game vs Isles?

Perezhogin Koivu Kovalev
Latendresse Plekanec Ryder
Samsonov Bonk Johnson
Higgins Lapierre Streit
