Lines for Game 4

Will there be any changes? Will Ladd play?



I would start the game with

Brouwer - Toews - Kane
Byfuglien - Sharp - Hossa
Ladd - Bolland - Versteeg
Eager - Madden - Burish


sorry for Kopy, but I think Brouwer has a better chemistry with Toews and Kane.

This would help us to get the Pronger factor out.

option 1: Pronger still against Toews line. This Line wouldn't be better, but our 2nd would have more chances to score

option 2: Pronger against Sharp line. This would give us the chance to see what Kane and Toews do when not faceing Pronger. Also I'm interested in Hossa against Pronger

If Ladd is good to go, I would be pulling Burish way before Kopecky.

I would go something along the lines of this, but I am sure Q would tweak it as the game goes.
Buff-Toews-Kane
Kopecky-Sharp-Hossa
Ladd-Bolland-Versteeg
Eager-Madden-Brouwer

I think we stick with what's been working. Buff, Toews, and Kane aren't going to be shut down all series. If Laddy is back, scratch Burish. He's been a bum all playoffs.

Byfuglien-Toews-Kane
Brouwer-Sharp-Hossa
Ladd-Bolland-Versteeg
Eager-Madden-Kopecky

These are the exact lines I would go with as well.

I'd take Buff off the top line... the whole point was to eliminate Pronger but not only has Pronger neutralized Buff... but that entire line.
After three games we can't continue to say...leave it until the get things going.
You just don't have time to do that in the playoffs.

Let Buff roam wild on some of the other defensive pairs and pound the crap out of them considering they are already decimated.

In theory taking Buff off the top line seems smart. Get him away from Pronger (at least some of the time) and all. But who do we throw on the first line with Toews and Kane? I'm gonna say no to Brouwer, because he's probably the one forward we have on the roster that's a bigger defensive liability than Kane is. It's just too risky to throw Kane and Brouwer on the same line against these Flyers IMO.

Now where it might work is if they really shuffle up these lines. Something like:

Brouwer-Toews-Hossa
Byfuglien-Sharp-Kane
Ladd-Bolland-Versteeg
Eager-Madden-Kopecky/Burish

I guess the question is...do you turn things upside so much after the first loss in 8 games...when it was in overtime? Probably not, so ignore my post lol.

You know, I've been thinking about this tonight, and I've changed my mind.

Byfuglien/Toews/Kane (Keep Buff on the top line...Keep Pronger zoned in to that line so that he'll "forget" the other lines that have been able to contribute in this series so far)
Kopecky/Sharp/Hossa (Kopecky and Hossa have some real chemistry, and Kopecky looks better right now than Brouwer)
Ladd/Bolland/Versteeg (a no-brainer)
Brouwer/Madden/Eager (a TRUE checking line)
