Must be a weirdo. I'd stay away from him.

Torts likes Sjostroms speed. Good for him. Hes earned it.

Hate to see Korpikoski on the 4th, but hell get his 6-8 minutes, got to make the most of it.

Really would love a Dubinksy goal tonight.

Habs' lines:

Latendresse - Koivu - A. Kostitsyn
Pacioretty - Plekanec - D'Agostini
Higgins - Lapierre - Kovalev
Stewart - Metropolit - Kostopoulos

Price is in.

Have a great game Rangers fans!

I hope your players will be careful, after Halak and Kovalev, it's now Tanguay's turn to be out with the flu!

Thanks for an accurate lineup, SC74. 'preciate it

Could you list the D-pairings as well?

Those are four very well balanced lines. There is a cute player on each line

You wouldn't happen to have the D-pairs as well?
Markov - Komisarek
Hamrlik - O'Byrne/Brisebois
Gorges - Schneider

I don't know who's in or out between O'Byrne and Brisebois. My guess is O'Byrne... Brisebois was in last game's lineup only to play his 1000th game in Montreal and O'byrne was doing well in previous games.

ha! I've kinda got a similar story. My early teens I lived in Milwaukee, where hockey is far from relevant, which sucked, but we get a new kid, from Montreal, I was stoked, I thought for sure he loved hockey, I mean, he was from Canada. Was I ever wrong, kid liked track and basketball and stuff, (puke). Total disapointment, we were still friends though. Like your friend, he only watches the finals and roots for the Canadian team, doesn't matter who it is, Calgary, EDM, Ottawa.

Your team is just stronger both physically and mentally right now. I couldn't put any money on the Habs tonight.

Korpikoski on the 4th line, what a waste.

Renney can't help but juggle the lines every game, can he?

Seriously though, Korpikoski is being wasted on the 4th line, I hope the guys in front of him earn their icetime.

Golden Boy Dubinsky and his 6 assists in 20 games, i'm looking at you.

I understand that Dubi's a Center and LK is better off on the wing, but his game has been better than Dubinsky's for some time now.

Korp hasnt really done much...Dubi is already on the 3rd line. You want Betts to move up?

um. ok.

isnt this about whos playing better and who earns ice time and with what line?

isnt it easier to argue that fred has earned the shot on the 3rd rather than korpedo is going to be wasted?

isnt this about producing on the ice?

Dubi can and maybe should be playing wing.

But I guess if you're gonna have LK on the wing there is nowhere to put him.

I have no problems with Shoey he's been very good.

Points are needed. No reason to revert back to lazy play. Win this.

Korpikoski hasn't done much, and neither has Dubinsky.

I'd give it to Sjostrom as well before Korpikoski at this point. He's just not creating anything.

Dubinsky creates stuff, but then he screws it up always. Plus he's never looking to shoot anymore and constantly looking to pass. Dubinsky is a 4th or 3rd liner at best right now... He's gotten a ton of ice time and hasn't got better so I'd rather try to trade him(this offseason) while there is still some perception that he's actually good.

Sjo was given a few shifts on the 3rd line and ended up scoring a goal in that small window. Sure it was a garbage type goal that should have never went in but he produced. Its not a real surprise he left that line together. But i'm also fairly certain it won't last long.

The Dubinsky argument is an interesting one.


I still love the kid and what he brings to this team. Not a chance I give up on him anytime soon.

However, his lack of production has just been crazy. I was in with the whole sophomore slump thing but this is getting ridiculous.

I almost think arguing Korpi/Sjo is pointless compared to Dubi getting third line minutes in Torts' system.

I think Dubi needs top 6 minutes, but at his production rate does he deserve it?


Sjostrom is a 4th liner. I don't care what anyone says. Great speed, great penalty killer, and yes he can pot some more with better linemates. Still doesn't mean he's all that great.

I think it's more important to develop Korpi at this rate.

I think the real question is where does Dubinsky fit and what does he deserve?
