FYI, Malone was seeing quite a little bit of time on the 4th line.
Who cares where Malone was seeing time at? Fact is, he's been one of TB's most dominant forwards in this series. He's a horse that is nearly impossible to move when he gets position, in a top 6 role.

I'm not going to get into this with you again, because you'll never understand. It's not worth even wasting the keystrokes on you. I've went over this ad nauseum, and you just mince words and speak in hyperbole. "Why don't we just replace Crosby with Craig Adams?!?!?" I'm still chuckling.

Wait...who was a whiny brat that insisted on top 6 time?

I'd like to see Staal develop his inner Holmstrom.

I still don't think tampa is that great of a team. That's the sole reason why I still have faith after game 2. They basically were montreal in how they took advantage of every scoring chance available. Big difference between those two teams though is that they have an aging vet in net who can be worn down over a 7 game series with 40+ shots thrown at him game in game out, as well as nowhere near the shotblocking and D structure required to hold our forwards to the perimeter.

We played an awful game, an awful game and it was still up for grabs midway through.

Is this a joke?

It would be pretty nice to see Staal turn into one of those Getzlaf type centers who are just so big, and so strong, that they are pretty much impossible to handle 1 on 1.

Try looking in the many Staal threads created and you'll get your answer.

Broken record is getting tired out, please stop playing me.

Hint: Malkin is spearheading the line no matter where he's at.

Hint #2: Staal "can" provide a Malone type of production from the center position. Being insulated by Neal or Kunitz & Malkin and "will" be beneficial for all concerned.

Hint #3: Malkin has proved it doesn't matter if he plays RW and I hate to ask this, but you have failed to prove one ounce of credibility otherwise.

What proof do you have that Staal can't center a Malkin based line?


Using only a couple sentences or a short paragraph without using the current situation with a full healthy lineup intact. Staal and Malkin played two games together with Staal as Malkins center.

No dancing around the question with using a second line based on a Neal, Malkin, Kovalev type set up and the team is better served with Staal at 3rd line C.

"Reread bold"

Go!

Maybe you need to research that a little bit more before you post this stuff. Malone has been dogged by injuries, especially the last couple seasons.

They were Montreal? They were the opposite in game 1. The only difference was Fleury stopped their chances in game 1 and didn't in game 2. I don't really see how the rest of the team played so much differently. You're just looking at the end result.

We could have been down 3-0 and probably should have been in game 1 in the first period too.
