Looks good to me. I don't have a problem with the Pacioretty scratch. The kid has been looking a little tired lately (not as involved as he normally would be).

Higgins should be scratched instead.

Pacioretty is a scratch.
-I'm very happy with the general makeup of the lines.
-I'm happy to see D'Agostini away from a grinder role.
-The MaxPac scratch is a bit of a stunner.

Wow...Bob bashing in 3...2...1!


I don't really understand the Pacioretty scratch myself, but I will trust Gainey with it. I love these lines otherwise. Even our D pairings look great!

The trust effect already in order. If Carbo would have scratched Pacioretty, he would have been ridiculized once again. But then I guess Dandenault is really so valuable to the team.

if i hadnt heard that maxpac said himself he was getting tired, i wouldnt be happy about that move...considering he only played 30 games in college last year, it makes sense...but i do hope its not the last we have seen of the kid this year.

Pacioretty barely played after the sticking incident in Dallas. I'm either thinking there's some kind of injury or fatigue from coming from an NCAA schedule and into an AHL/NHL schedule so quickly. Benefit of the doubt from me.

Thank you Bob for keeping Andrei and Tangs together.

Should be excepted of MaxPac being tired as he hasn't played a full 82 game schedule before, I think D'Ago could catch fire playing on that second line.

I never (ever) bashed Carbo myself. In fact you will not find a negative comment I made about him here. With that said, if he put Youppi as our first line center in his first game as our coach I would trust him with that as well.

Habs Inside Out are also saying that Kovalev will play on the Left Wing instead of the Right Wing. Interessing move.

I really like the D pairings, but I'm surprised Gainey didn't dress Brisebois for his 1000th game. Maybe he's waiting for a less dangerous team.

Trying to get him out of his comfort zone?

Is Price in net? Personally I don't have much of a preference as to which goalie goes in tonight, but interested nonetheless.

Interesting indeed. Wonder if that's because D'Agostini is less comfortable playing on his off-wing and Kovalev would be more comfortable in that position being a veteran.

I just noticed the D pairings changed too, I really like the new pairings as Gorges looks way more confident on the right side IMO.

I think Gainey proved beyond the shadow of a doubt yesterday that he isn't out to give personal favours. He fired someone many people (including myself) thought he would quit before firing.

I don't think giving Brisebois his 1000th game is high on the priority list right now.

Pacioretty last week said that he wasn't used to playing that much and was kind of tired so having sit for a game is not a bad thing.

Well he did score a nice goal on the left wing against Dallas. Maybe it's to get the opposing team out of their comfort zone because they're used to all of his tricks on the right wing already (his little Kovy move when he moves towards the blue line then turns quickly towards then net and shoots top shelf). It worked a few times last year but the goalies adjusted and I think he didn't score once this year with that move.

Nice lineup.
Glad Brisebois is not in the game, i hope he never plays a game with us now that his buddy is gone.

No offense to MaxPac but hes a rookie. I really like this line up as long as the 4th line doesnt play more than 8 mins. D'ago on the left side is awsome.

2nd line: Kovalev (natural RW)-Plex- D'Agostini (natural RW)

-Out: MaxPac (natural LW).
-D'Agostini already has difficulty with his defensive play. Too much to ask him also to adapt to a new position?

When Max plays, he should play in a top 6 role - I like this move.

Well if D'Agostini is a natural RW, he's playing the right position. It's Kovalev who will be playing LW.

I like seeing Schneider moved to the third pairing, 5 on 5 he has not looked superb. Hopefully moving Komisarek to the top pair will wake him up a bit.
