Go with this. Theyve had stretches where each line was great. They may click and finish strong, that would be huge heading into the playoffs.

Then go with the french connection for the 3rd line.

I want our team to play with a top 9. I would go with:

Cammalleri-Plekanec-Kostitsyn
Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta (might as well get them chemistry for the playoffs and if not then we don't make the playoffs, it's either win/win or lose/lose, it's do or die now imo)
Pouliot-Desharnais-Darche (Maybe add another 2nd or 3rd liner in the off season, re-sign Darche as a 4th liner who can step in to help out the 3rd or 2nd, good depth)

Then the 4th line is pretty obvious, with Eller being in the AHL imo.

Moen-Halpern-White, in the off-season we'll go grab a guy like Neil to replace Halpern, somebody more physical and then that line will be dominant in that category.

are your effen serious ? DD is a minor leager

expecting this midget to tak a prominent role with us is a joke

no issues with him but cmon folks he cant be nothing but a filler becaseu if I have to rely on him we are fked

unless you are St.Louis or Fluery elite players these 30-40 point finess guys get you nowhere ....depth guy only

we have a legit talent in the making in Eller ...( I dont care what he hasnt done )

but we are praising a 25 year old filler

It's his first NHL season, way to assume the worst about the guy.

St-Louis was dropped by Calgary for a reason, he was awful originally. I'm sure a lot of people like yourself assumed the worst about him too back in the day.

Give the guy a break.

That is my ideal lineup, DD with 2 huge guys with skill and net crashing ability, Gomer with Gio against less skilled players, and THE ATM line reunited.

Why? Kostitsyn is useless without Plekanec.
Why? Desharnais has chemistry with Patches & Pools.
Why? Cammalleri is better with Plekanec but hopefully can find a way to kickstart dumbass.

PS. Darche gets 1 of the 3 spots if healthy. He should be guaranteed a spot in the lineup in my mind. I just don't care which spot he gets.
Darche is probably gone for the year. Apparently he has a hip injury that he attempted to come back from, but he wasn't able to. That is why he was played very little, and was more or less a shell of himself when he came back.

It's too bad though, I really thought Darche added a lot to this team this year.

Yup, this.

In an ideal world, we find ourselves a legitimate 3rd liner with decent offensive skills to play with Gomez and Gionta. Moen is an offensive blackhole, regardless of who you play him with. Who would be available who fits that mould? Teddy Purcell? David Jones? Frans Nielsen?

Better yet, this exact line-up with Tuomu Ruutu instead of Travis Moen gives us the "3 2nd Lines" model that is working phenomenally for the Flyers.

why should our best scorer be stuck with gomez ?

JM already tried cammy with scotty and that line was horrible,Gomez sticks with hes lil buddy Gionta and THEY need to get there stuff back together,our best line was always the Cammy - Pleks - Akost one JM was just always stuff switching it cuz gomez coudlnt produce.

But i do agree with you Patches - Desharnais - Pouliot would be an awesome line up

Well if we use Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta (Gionta produces well with Pleks too) then we have to find two other lines and we obviously can't use Kosty - Gomer - Eller cause they stink. Cammalleri, I think, would benefit well from Desharnais in a normal game - maybe switch him and Patches... I just dont want to hurt Patches development with Gomez.

Bah. Gomez sucks so bad. Those lines wouldn't look so bad if we cuold move Gomez.

Would be ideal (if the story about Darche being done is true). If we can pick up a scoring winger for that line, we might be alright.

My pick would be Andrew Brunette. I've stated him before and I'll state him again. He would be a great pick-up for the 2nd/3rd line. (I wouldn't mind Hecht out of Buffalo either, but he seems a bit far fetched). Let's say we can get Brunette a prospect (Maxwell, Palushaj) and a pick 3rd (conditional will change to a second if we make it past round 1 of the playoffs).

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Desharnais - Pouliot
Kostitsyn - Eller - Brunette
Moen - Halpern - White

I really admire what he has done and not knocking him

I just want to win period and DD simply put is not a legit roster player for us come playoff time

St. Louis has world class hands and speed and DD has neither of them

every team has a DD on their farm

Its the same with Webber ...nice depth guy but with Wiz ( if he gets signed )
jorges and Subban ...we have no size and none are legit shut down guys

its about making the pieces fit and simply adding another midget on a team lacking size to me is useless

Yeah he only has 27 points in 25 playoff games in the AHL so he is pretty clearly garbage come playoff time. I don't know why you are complaining about him. He doesn't solve our size or grit issues but if he is still playing with Pouliot and White I am very confident they would stick up for DD if the Flyers or Bruins started taking liberties.

AHL not NHL ...the Flyers and Bruins will knock him off his skates like a 5 year old

its the same analagy with MAB ....a nice depth power play specialst but he bounces from team tp team ..why is that ?

Becasue he is a depth filler guy period ... he cant play as your top 6 and thats the problem with DD...yes he will put some points in the regaular season but is nothing more than a depth forward

if we were the Flyers you can team him up with Hartnell and Leino and he is fine on a third line but our team is small and cant use anotehr small dude

Agree with Geeman, if we have to rely on DD to be our 2nd line center we're screwed, you need size down the middle...period.

Solving the center dillema

I think it should be obvious to all that Eller needs to play centre to be at his best and develop in the awesome player he can be.

Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta
Pacioretty-Plekanec-Cammalleri
Kostitsyn-Eller-Desharnais
Moen-Halpern-White
Darche/Pyatt

What say you? St. Louis has had great success at wing, I think Desharnais could fit into that same mold. He would look great feeding Andrei and Eller can do all the little things right on that line that Andrei won't do because of mentality and Desharnais sometimes can't do because of size (his mentality is all there though).

or, for something more guaranteed that has worked in the past:
Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta
Kostitsyn-Plekanec-Cammaleri
Pacioretty-Eller-Desharnais
Moen-Halpern-White

Basically what I'm trying to get at here is Eller should only play centre, and Halpern certainly as hell should not play wing!

Since we all know that Martin likes to find duos instead of a trio, are these tandems on the team?

Pacioretty - Pleks

Gionta - Gomez

Pouliot - DD

Kostitsyn - Eller.

Not too shabby.
