it is what it is. This is another one of those years that a team needs to really devellop it's players.

Like I said before, at least this shows the brass what kind of depth there is in the team and help them showcase the youth for making a trade or two to bring in that gritty talented player they need to round out the top 6 (even with Patches healthy and back in the lineup)


EDIT: I do see Eller as a Plekanec type (but with more size) in a year or two

I think we are in hang on mode till the playoffs start. Hopefully we will have Sopel,Darche,Halpern and Plekanec back by then.

Personally I think Eller will be better than Plekanec. There is just something about that kid...

I really hope we get to see Cammalleri-Plekanec-Palushaj. IMO, there's a pretty big possibility that the line could be seen on a regular basis next season as we all know Halpern wil not resign.

With the way Washington is coming together, I don't think it makes a big difference if we play Philly, Boston or Washington. 3rd, 4th or 5th would be best, but if we lose out there, i don't think it makes much difference if we finish 6th, 7th or 8th--and with all these injuries that's where we look like we're heading.
Don't forget PK. We'd be a lot better off if Gorges were still playing but the one positive is that it took the threat of pressbox time away from Subban. You remember how tentative he was when he came back after being scratched? When Gorges went down and it was clear Subban was in the lineup for good, he went back to the confident style of play he needs to be successful.

I still think the team should resign a bunch of D for next year and let Weber go for another half season in the AHL but I agree that an extended taste of the NHL has helped him a lot.

AK - Eller - Cammy
Dawes - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - DD - Palushaj
Moen - Pyatt - White

Switch Moen and Palushaj if you need more of a defensive presence on the third line. Also I would love to see Cammy on the Eller - AK line. Those two get crazy pressure and with a finisher like Cammy they would be lethal.

Pacioretty???

(Only if all the doctors feel its totally safe, though... and Pax feels he's 100% ready)

Martin should make DD, cams and gio a line.

That would have to be the smallest ****ing line ever. I mean, when Mike 5'9 Cammalleri is the tallest forward, you know your team is small.

So we're the Montreal Bulldogs

Then there's the Hamilton Cyclones

So what's the new name of the Cincinnati team?

Wheeling Nailers.... i always thought it was a joke, like somebody switching the first letters around. Nheeling Wailers sounds more legit.

Wheeling Nailers sounds like a made up team from a made up place.

I'm not going to lie, I thought it was a nickname of the the city and thought it was a joke too.

Then I found out it isn't and it blew my mind.

Quality depth should never be underrated and I think this is what we have..
This!

AK - Eller - Dawes
Pouliot- Gomez - Gionta
Cammy - DD - Palushaj
Moen - Pyatt - White

I don't see Dawes playing on a fourth line, the guy have a skillset and JM will probably put him in an offensive role. He would play with the 2 biggest foward we have, and they're on fire. We pray for the second line. I think the third is intriguing, plus Cammy would play against weaker opposition. Give him PP and PK to make him happy.
