The three single worst players of the first three games.
100% In agreement. I would also like to see Chipchura play 4th line center. I know Lapierre is a better skater and more physical, but I find Lapierre is often out of position and a bit eratic/wild with his play.
Who do I want to see out, or who will be out? Two very different questions. If it were me, Laraque and Higgins are in, while Dandenault and Lapierre are out. I would even like to get Chipchura in for Begin versus most opponents. However, I'm sure this is how it will play out:
- Higgins/Laraque in; Dandenault/Kostopoulos out (Begin was +4 vs. Philly and apparently Carbo was happy with Lapierre's game yesterday, so you do the math)
- Once Bouillon is back, Chipchura to Hamilton (what a shame, but he doesn't have to clear waivers) and O'Byrne/Brisebois alternate sitting based on the opponent.
