This is sad !! And to think that Sergei is owning the AHL right now, can't even buy a call up to save his life... Even more SAD !!
JM rather have solid defensive players as opposed to skilled players, hence why SK is still rotting in the minors. I still dont know why Carle isnt in the lineup, not that Leach has been horrible but he isnt part of your future...
Kostitsyn has been playing well, and you put him on the 4th line? What the hell?
My thoughts exactly. He's not going to get out of his funk if he doesn't get to keep shooting.
Martin's handling of the young players strikes me as nothing short of abysmal. Benefit of the doubt and all that, but he's not just not getting results he's positioning himself in such a way that he won't get them.
Replace D'Agotisni by Pax until he comes back.
Having Laraque healty and playing well, with Latendresse and Lapierre could be an interesting option. I think they would both grow a few inch taller with big G beside them and play their pest role a bit better.
I put Pyatt on the 3rd because I like his energy and effort. It compliments M&M nicely.
As for Sergeď, I think we should see how he could do. When playing well, he can be almost dominant. He was for a few games last year (or before).
1. ask for SK to join the team and play with AK with Plek
2. split up Hammer and Spacek and put Spacek on left
3. stop detaching the 1st line
4. either bench MAB or ask him to slap shot non stop during PP
Cammy - Gomer - Gionta
SK - Plek - AK
Moen - Metro - Pyatt
Lats - Laps - White
