I'm going to be at this game. The last time the Habs beat Carolina at the Bell Centre was in 2004

Pitkanen is out for a while for Carolina, even more reason to be excited for our full lineup tomorrow.

Do we have any link to confirm this... seems strange Kosto isn't on the 4th line.

I think because we have an abundance of 4th liners. Carbo is just going to rotate them around during the year to keep them all fresh. This game it seems to be TK's turn to sit.

He doesn't have to sit. He plays way better than any other 4th liners on the team, and does not deserve to sit.

Bad management if he actually sits...

Kostopoulos > Begin, why the heck isn't Kostopoulos in the line-up? He also scored last game.

Somehow I doubt Kostopoulos will be scratched but hey, you never know...

I'll wait for official confirmation.

Crazy line-up on offense, but please, Kosto way before Bégin

It's Latendresse's time to shine, it's been too long since he had a good game

edit: i just read on Habsinsideout that Carbo will choose beetween Bégin, Dandenault, Lappierre and Laraque, i hope it's just a typo

I want to see Erik Staals face get smashed in, not that it isn't already.

Healthy forward lineup for the first time of the season. Andrei Kostitsyn with the chicken wing goal.

I have this feeling it won't be long before Higgins finds his way back on Koivu's wing.

He spent a lot of time on PP against the Ducks while Fatso () didn't as much.

I think Lats isn't doing enough, he needs to burst out or something, needs to score some goals.

If the line is producing why mess with it? If anything it helps balance out our lines...

I like the lines as is. Most importantly, we need Plecks and AKost to get going. I got both on my fantasy team.
