La Presse reporting different line combos (and Gagnon was wrong)

According to Gagnon in La Presse, tonight's lines are:

Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev
Kostitsyn – Plekanec – Kostitsyn
Higgins – Lang – Kostopoulos
Latendresse – Bιgin – Dandenault

http://blogues.cyberpresse.ca/gagnon/?p=70313791

At the same time, he writes that the lines are the same as the St Louis game, in which case he's erred: swap Pleks and Lang and you have the lines from last game.

Anybody know which combo it is (I would love to see Pleks center the brothers)

Well those lines would be better than seeing Kosto on 2nd..

I'm pretty sure it's the same combos as Sunday. Don't know why on earth they don't put Guillaume on line three instead of Tom I Can't Finish Kostopoulos...

I just don't see Lats and Lang fitting together, it's just way too slow of a duo.

Gagnon does have the line combos confused and you are right about the lines from Sunday.
Carbo has already said that there won't be any changes to tonights line formations from Sunday.

Kosto isn't much faster though. It's not like the line is built for any more speed with Kosto on it than Lats. It would be worth a shot.

They should just put Lang, Lats and Kovalev together. They all work at the same relative speed, so they wouldn't be slowing anybody down.

The 4th line tonight looks like a disaster waiting to happen. I'm not sure what can make someone think that Latendresse is the perfect compliment to two energy guys like Begin and Dandenault when Kostopoulos is in the lineup on the 2nd line.

Begin replacing Lapierre on 4th line C sounds good to me.

I've heard Kovy wanted to play with Lang, not sure this is true though. But I'd still want to see a trio with both of the on the same line.
Happy bout the 2tits and pleks.
Hope koivu and kovy work it out. I can't really remember if they played well together last time. But I do remember there wasn't much cohesion between the 2.

Kosto is much faster than Lats.

I agree that Lats shouldn't be on 4th line, that's ridiculous. But Kosto is faster.

S.Kost/Lang/Kosto did awright at the beginning of the season, so replace Kosto with Higgy and it might be good. It would also open up a spot for Lats on the left of Plek and we'd put A.Kost on his RW where he belongs. Kosto would drop to 4th where he's most effective.
I think this would make more sense.

But then the brothers end up getting split again, which I think Carbo is trying to avoid. If I could have it my way I'd rotate between these lines:

Tanguay - Koivu - Kovalev
Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Higgins - Lang - Latendresse
Laraque - Chipchura/Begin - Kostopoulos

and these lines:

Tanguay - Koivu - Latendresse
Kostitsyn - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Higgins - Lang - Kovalev
Lapierre - Chipchura - Dandenault

Not bad. I hope that A. Kost is on RW. However, those would like better IMO.

Tanguay-Koivu-Kovalev
S. Kostitsyn – Plekanec – A. Kostitsyn
Higgins – Lang – Latendresse
Begin – Lapierre – TKO
Dandenault-Laraque

Francois Gagnon is a moron... Each of his article contains at least 1 error...

Yup. Don't you find it a bit extreme to call someone a moron for making mistakes? I'm no grammar or spelling nazi, but you made two in 14 words.

That Kosto cant finish is just a sign that something always happens when he's on the ice.

Actually, he probably will hate it as you put Lats out of the lineup... or was that because of post #15
