With Stewart and Pacioretty playing great on the bottom lines and D'Agostini showing tonight he can play a great game with Metropolit and Stewart on the 4th line I think Tanguay will replace him on the Koivu line but seriously although Latendresse was playing great with Lapierre, I don't see Pacioretty out of the lineup.
What would you do to fit Latendresse in the lineup?
Tanguay Koivu D'Agostini
A. Kostitsyn Plekanec Kovalev
Higgins Lapierre Pacioretty
Kostopoulos Metropolit Stewart
Latendresse - you can't take any one of D'Agostini Pacioretty or Stewart, I don't see this ending well for Latendresse. He may be part of a deadline deal to get a C or even better a D.
Laraque - He looks uninterested...He needs to make the most of his shifts. Needs to get dirty ala Stewart but he would rather just sulk!
yeah unfortunately d'ago's been invisible, but i don't see him heading back. dandy will be traded even though i'd like to see him at D replacing brisebois..laraque is a PT player, chicphura goes back...
so dandy and laraque gone or PT means tanguay in....and lats replaces d'ago....sergei? next year
I wuld send Stewart and D'Agostini down to the AHL, I've heard that Carle and Weber are both doing well in Hamilton, I'd call up whichever of the two is the most reliable on his own zone and ready to contribute offensively.
Higgins had an awesome game tonight. No reason whatsoever to move him as far as his on-ice play goes. He's gonna continue to get better as the team gets better over these next few games, not to mention Tanguay is likely going to be on his line giving even more of a boost.
