If Adam keeps playing good, they could try Leino on wing instead of just trying to make him play center. Adam (playing good) and Roy is decent enough at center, no need to force Leino to center if he doesn't have quality wingers.

Another thing that might help is Hecht on his wing and Ennis on the other. We all know Boyes is pretty much useless.

Leino isn't going to get any better playing with Boyes and McCormick. He needs to be back between Ennis and Stafford or at least get a little Hecht action on his line. Dude needs players who can cycle the puck with him, Boyes and Cody aren't going to cut it.
So who plays with Boyes & McCormick?

I hope you aren't thinking that Roy should be their center.

The thing is that Leino and Boyes have eachother. They are both talented, so its not like they wont be playing with players that can score. McCormick will battle. Leino and Boyes need to put on their big boy pants and go play hard tonight, score a goal or 2. If you get 8-9 minutes, make it count.

The attitude of honesty?

It's true. Leino isn't being paired with some scrub, Boyes is basically in the same position he is, minus the long term commitment. I'm not too worried about Leino at this point, just give it some time.

It's only been five games and I think it's going to take time for things to shake out.

Cody should be on the bench.

Really?

Also, why is MAG still in? Ruff really seems to play favorites sometimes.

I suggested sitting Cody when Hecht returns but that is because I was ignorant to the important role he serves for our team. Without Miller and McCormick we would have definitely lost the Montreal game IMO. I think he needs to stay for now at least.

It seems to me like we were planning on Adams coming up full time next season when Boyes' contract was up - Adams surprised us by playing well so far this season and Boyes has not been - I would bench Boyes - I don't think he is in our long term plans.

I don't think Hecht is coming back for awhile... they have the luxury of taking their time, and with 2 concussions in less then 6 months, they should

I'd rather have Cody centering Vanek and Poms then riding the pine at this point.

He looked much better tonight.

Maybe they want him to get those 58 games? Sounds crazy, but more likely than Lindy playing him because he's his favorite?
