Third scoring line?

So I will assume that Gomez, Gionta, Plekanec, Cammalleri, Pouliot and Kostitsyn will make up our top two lines to start the season. I was thinking that we could have a decent scoring third line. Here are the eligible players:

Dustin Boyd-- He has had back to back 11 goal seasons and is only 24 years old. He could score 15 goals realistically.

Max Lapierre-- He had a pretty bad year offensively last year but the year before he did notch 15. He turned up his game in the playoffs last year and hopefully he plays like that player again. He is only 25 years old.

David Descharnais-- Yes he is very small but he did manage to get 78 points in 60 games for the Bulldogs last year. He has to clear waivers if he gets sent back down to the AHL and he is only 24 so I would assume someone would claim him. If you have to keep him on the NHL roster you may as well put him in a spot that he could succeed.

Max Pacioretty-- He did not play all that great last year but from what I read he played injured and he has put on ten pounds of muscle this summer. He has all the tools he just has not yet put them all to use. He is only 22 years old.

Lars Eller-- He got 57 points in 70 games in his rookie AHL season. He led his team in scoring and had 15 more points than any other forward on his team. He is only 21 years old and should be a NHL regular this season.



I am sorry to all you Habs fans but I did not include Alexander Avtsin as I think that he should have at least one year in Hamilton. All of the players who I had listed are between the ages of 21 and 25. They are all in the great age range to have break out seasons.

Any agree or disagree with me?

I would not put lappy on a line with eller and boyd. Lappy lacks in the hockey sense department and not to mention he's pretty much a hogger. Id rather see pyatt on that line to start the season and eventually patches(once he's ready) to take that spot away from pyatt.

Do you think a line of:

Eller--Descharnais--Boyd could do some damage?

The only problem would be having our top three centers that are small.

I would like Boyd, Eller and Lapierre on the same line. To say Lapierre has no hockey sense is a bit of a strech. As for Patches, Desharnais and others young guns they'll get there chances with habs injuries. I think White makes the team as extra player (3rd or 4th line), cause I think management has him pegged for this role and not much more. Patches, DD and Avstin are more 1st or 2nd liners in management view and need more seasoning in Hamilton.

I would love to having Max Pac make the team, and give use a 3rd line of Patches-Eller-Laps and our 4th line being Moen-Boyd-White/Pyatt/Darche

I think if Patches makes this team its to play on the 3rd line, but if not a 3rd line of Moen-Eller-Laps. Overall I like that our 3rd-4th line is getting bigger but with some offense punch. I think Boyd is for sure playing C and Lap is being going to play RW fulltime which is a good decision imo.

I think Boyd-Eller-Lapierre is the way to go. I am not the biggest Lapierre fan and I do agree that his hockey sense is limited and I also find he plays a little scared. That being said, he's got great speed and energy and can make some things happen offensively. At this point, if we want a somewhat offensive line, he's our best best unless Pacioretty starts producing some offense.

I like Boyd-Eller-Lapierre and Moen-Pyatt-White combinations. I think that Boyd and Eller should play together because they are the two best offensive players in our bottom six and their effectiveness will diminish if they have no offensive linemates.

Since when does Pyatt play "bigger" than AK? He's faster and better defensively, but no way in hell that Pyatt is more physical than AK. Take off the beer goggles.

I guess it depends what 'physical' means here; if it means battling, getting one's nose dirty and grinding it out in the corners and along the wall, then yes, Pyatt is more physical. If it means throwing hits and/or using size to one's advantage to generate offense, then AK is more physical.

No, that's not for sure. Pyatt is faster and better defensively. Kostitsyn is more skilled and more physical. Tom Pyatt is awesome, but should not be in our Top 6.

I love Desharnais. I wish that he can join the CH before Christmas. I would be very disappointed to trade him. But I don't see him on 3rd line yet.

Moen - Desharnais - Pyatt

This doesn't look good, but could be a compromise for 4th line.

Ideal third is Boyd - Eller - Lapierre

But I really wish to see a transaction in 1st third of season involving Moen to leave more room for rookies.

Losing Moen is probably one of the worst things that could happen to our bottom 6.

metropolit and Moore arent the biggest centers in the league and we did rather well last year, especially when Moore joined the line-up.. it doesnt really matters, the lines have to work thats all.

I would like Martin to try

A.K with Gomez and Gionta. maybe the two vets can really whip his ass and give him opportunities to finally produce more steadily.

A.K. can play LW.

this is a good lineup. I like it. I really think White should and will play on the 4th line. Really like this kid.

Wouldn't be a bad idea. He can't look bad with those guys that's for sure and with Gomez has the puck carrier, Andrei wouldn't need to do that and risk any turnovers.

Cammalleri -Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Moen - Eller - Pacioretty
Pyatt - Boyd - Lapierre
