Tanguay will be out longer than everyone else.. at least I think, so I'll live him out.. the kids have a fight to see who gets to keep a spot.

Higgins - Koivu - D'Agostini
A. Kostitsyn - Lang - S. Kostitsyn
Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kovalev
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopoulos

Markov - Komisarek
Hamrlik - Gorges
Bouillon - Brisebois

Price
Halak

I'd rather not.. at least now.

TKO was incredible in the playoffs last year.. and that line has been one of our best in recent weeks.

I'm sure Pacioretty or D'Ago will cool off as well.

I honestly think Pacioretty should be returned to Hamilton when everyone is healthy and D'Agostini kept.

I know it's not the fashionable answer, but D'Agostini seems to be a bit more ready and has a better all around game right now. Pacioretty is really young and I see no reason to rush him.

Ultimately, Pacioretty will be the better player, but not yet.

I think ultimately D'agostini will stay permanently, but we don't have to make that decision until Tanguay comes back. And honestly, Tanguay can take his sweet time.

The only other big question mark is MaxPac. I hope he stays but I'm not sure Bob is thinking the same. After how many games does this season count as a full season towards him being a UFA in many years? But it's a long way away and the CBA will change so screw it, play him now and deal with it them.
Totally agree. Brisebois has been playing bad hockey for the last 2-3 weeks. He was fine before but now he is clearly tired from playing so many games! He has already played more games than last year and we are just halfway through!

Dandenault was playing good hockey on defense before his bad injury so he'll probably play just as much as Breezer when he'll come back.

The rest of the lineup is perfect! I would be willing to trade away Higgins and keep D'Agostini if we could get a solid defense instead of Breezer/Dandy but, with the way we are playing right now, this doesn't seem to be absolutely necessary.

And since Tanguay will be the longer out, we should keep D'Agostini with Koivu and Higgins. D'Agostini was playing his best hockey with Capitaine Courage.

All of these line-ups are absurd. The fact is, the team may soon have too many healthy bodies.

Just for fun:

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kovalev
A. Kostitsyn - Lang - S. Kostitsyn
Higgins - Koivu - Tanguay
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopolous
Begin - Chipchura - D'Agostini
Dandenault - Stewart - Laraque

All of those guys can hold down an NHL roster spot. That's six lines! We could trade Higgins and Plekanec for a centre and still have room to send three forwards to the minors

Setting aside the "L" word, I think the team needs to make a move. A forward for a D or two forwards off the roster for a better forward.

If this roster holds, I suspect Chipchura, Stewart and Pacioretty go to the minors. Dandenault plays defense. Begin, D'Agostini, Laraque and Kostopolous roll in and out of the line-up.

Personally, using the above, I'd put Tanguay where Pacioretty is and D'Agostini where Tanguay is.

I think this is the no brainer lineup assuming there are no trades.
Like everyone else, I'd like to see Someone in the number 4 on D.
That Brisebois - Boullion just doesn't work!

I agree mostly with that line-up too, except for Pacioretty. I really don't think Gainey will rush him. He's fine and insulated right now, but at the first chance, I bet he goes back to Hamilton.

I can see Carbo going "WOOOO!" in his office with the amount of NHL level players he can use now.

Tanguay - Koivu - Higgins
Balditsyn - Lang - Hairitsyn
Pacioretty - Plekanec - Kovalev
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopoulos (With Laraque filling in when required)

Any team with that kind of 4th line is scary.

Higgins is the oddman out, D'ago is a better finisher.
higgins still scored 27 in 61 .. we cant just give up on him ... but i wouldnt be upset if hes dealt, my problem is he's so in shape, gorges higgins and price seem to be rly good friends, and i see them as also fitness freaks,komi too, and it would be great if they could show pacioretty and/or dago/whoever how to RLY work out, would make our young guys tougher, i dont know if im the only one who thinks higgins is too good of a team player/leader/likeable guy for the locker room, i mean, this isnt ribeiro here..

agree.

I think DAgo will shine when Koivu is back.. Paccioretty could use some more time in the minors, amazing prospect, plays with alot of heart and passion but is still a bit raw.. Anyway you can be sure he will be around the team for the playoffs when the Dogs get eliminated.. And Im sure Carbo wont hesitate to play MaxPac if one of our fowards struggle...

From Boone's Blog

"I'd keep Max-Pac over D'Agostini. But the organization's philosophy of player development suggests that D'Agostini – a righthanded scorer in the last year of his contract – will stay while Pacioretty gets more pro experence down on the farm."

Both players are getting their chance on a top line to see how they perform and both have shown they can contribute, but because of age and contracts, Patches will be sent down and D'ags will stay up and be evaluated further in all likelyhood.

Once Higgins-Koivu-Tanguay are healthy the main priority will be to determine who gets to play with Pleks and Kovy. I would love to see the Higgins-Koivu-Tanguay line develop chemistry, it was the original plan at the begging of the season but it could not be used very often for various reasons. That leaves D'ago with Pleks-Kovy. If either of those lines doesn't work then Tanguay-Pleks-Kovy would be good as well and I think D'ago would be better fitted with Koivu.

therefore

Tanguay/D'ago - Pleks- Kovy
Higgins - Koivu - Tanguay/D'ago
SK74 - Lang - AK46
Latendresse - Lapierre - Kostopoulos

defence

goalies

benched players

but it never ends up beign what seem clear on paper. Carbo has a great instinct for finding the right chemistry. Main concern should be to get Tanguay firing on all cylinders but the end of the season, he's a guaranteed game changer.

Don't be naive and count D'Ago out just yet guys, he's been actually pretty good and I think now that he's played so many games more then pax who hasn't played 10 games yet, it might be smarter to just send pax down and keep d'ago up for the rest of the season.

Yup looks good to me. Although i would hope that Gainey can do something to address that defence. Under no circumstances do i want both Brisebois and Bouillon in our top 6 come playoff time. One i can live with but not both.

BAHAHAHAHAHAH.....thank god our not the GM!!!

First of all....it would be a huge mistake for the Habs to even consider getting Vinny Lecavalier because of his huge contract. Signing him would make it nearly impossible to sign anybody else for the next 11 years.

Second of all, we need to keep Komisarek because he is a vital player for this team. We seen how well we do when he is out of the lineup....it wasn't good. We need his leadership and toughness.

Thirdly, we need a top 4 defencemen to compliment this team, not more forwards. We already have enough forward trying to make the team now from the minors but don'e have any roster spots up for grabs for them. We don't have much trouble scoring right now, but we are having a tougher time keeping the puck out of the net. Another top 4 defencemen would fix that problem and also result in more goals scored.
