I think you waste Mac on Fiddler's line but no matter how we do it, we'll still have Fiddler and Belanger centering two lines so two no offense lines. I'd rather see him try (which of course means he won't):

Doan Turris Mac
Whitney Korpi Stemp
Boeds Hanzal Vrbata
Belanger Fidder Pyatt

Or flip Doan and Stem...

All I want is Whitney / Boedker & Hanzal / Vrbata. Everybody else can play musical chairs.

I think Tikhonov is a more suitable call-up for the opening we have on the fourth line.

Boedker - Turris - Doan (please work, lol)
Whitney - Hanzal - Vrbata
Pyatt - Fiddler - Stempniak
Korpikoski - Belanger - Tikhonov/BizNasty

If Turris can handle the minutes, I can definitely see that lineup working. If he cannot, we're short a centerman and Korpi may be forced into that role. The lack of trades for forward depth should give him a boost, if nothing else. We're counting on him being in the lineup. I can see Belanger double shifting with Doan/Boedker late in games etc., as has been the case a lot of this season.

Yandle - Morris
Rozi - Klesla (I'm hoping he's the guy who finally takes Sauer's role)
Aucoin - Schlemko/OEL

I like it. I have no complaints with Aucoin's game lately, but Morris has been in over his head. Hopefully he won't have to spend too much time on the PK.

Ebbett should be sent down and Mac brought up. Turris has improved a lot this year and with more confidence shown in him could be a surprise down the stretch.
Look at what Boedker has done since Tip showed confidence in him.
With Uppy gone there is no reason not to bring up Mac and play him.

Boedker/Hanzal/Vrbata
Whitney/Turris/Doan
Pyatt/Fiddler/ MacLean
Korpikoski/Belanger/Stempniak

No, this sentence should read "look at how much confidence Tippett has had in Boedker since he's shown he belongs in the NHL".

Turris needs to show something on the ice before he gets an expanded role, not the other way around.

Agreed, Boedker has done all the work to convince Tipp that he deserves more ice time.

Turris needs to follow his lead and begin to step up his game. If he can, then we are looking good going into the playoffs, if not, then moving Korpi up into the center slot and bringing up MacLean will serve as a better option.

I would actually prefer Boedker on that line. While I wouldn't call Whitney a liability, his defensive game isn't exactly strong either. Throwing Boedker on that line would make it true shutdown line without losing some of the playmaking that Whitney brought to that line.

I just think Whitney & Boedker look dangerous together every time they're on the ice. Great chemistry between the 2. At the very least, they both need to get major PP time on the same line.

Two setup men on the same line, wouldn't you want to spread the love?

One on each of our top two lines would be sweet. We know they can create plays, the guys around them will have the job of finishing it.

I dont' question that they play well together. But I think it would load up one line with possibly our two most dynamic playmakers.

That sounds fine, I'm just talking about what I saw. When those 2 guys are on the ice, it seems like you just need to put a big pylon in front of the net to pick up the trash and you've got a hell of a scoring line. Either Hanzal or Pyatt would be good candidates for the crease abuse job.

Whitney-Hanzal-Vrbata
MacLean-Belanger-Doan
Boedker-Turris-Korpikoski
Pyatt-Fiddler-Stempniak
Biz

Lines 1 and 4 have proven to be pretty effective together. Keep it that way. Line 3 is pure speed and line 2 wants to prove that speed doesn't matter. Pyatt and Stemp can both take shifts on line 2 to help ease Mac into the big league.

Yandle-Aucoin
Rusty-Rozy
OEL-Morris
Jovo

Put our two new minute munchers together and let them talk all the czech they want.

Turris has shown something on occasion just not on a consistent basis. I really wonder about his health. We all acknowledge his body will continue to mature as he grows older but I'd like to know if a few of those "healthy" scratches were really issues with his once wonky back.

Ideally the scratches had nothing to do with his back but I'm one of those people that takes scepticism to a new level.
