But like you said, our forward depth is awful. I thought MacMilian has looked bad the last few games and the line of Mac/Selanne/Winchester just was epic fail. I really hate that 3rd line of Marchant/Ruutu/Sexton. I mean Carlyle pick a theme.. its just a melting pot of poor skill with poor toughness.
I liked putting Winchester on the top line and splitting up RPG.I would like to see Ryan surrounded with more talent on another line, but the problem is we don't really have it.
Winchester Getz Perry
Blake Koivu Selanne
I still not sure we can get enough scoring chances with that 3rd line...
This koivu injury is a serious killer. We need another 2 way/playmaking center in our lineup.
what were doing now definitely isnt working, but I think putting Ryan on the 3rd line just wont work without Lupul here. Our depth is really terrible, our second line is just ineffective without Koivu and Blake, McMillan and Winchester are both HUGE stretches to be top 6 forwards, and they are especially not good enough to be the second man on a line. Selanne cant carry a line on his own, our 2nd line is worse right now than Ebbett/Carter.
