WTF people, Eller on the wing? Screw DD he can't play defense to save his life and there's no way that line would be that dominant on the road if JM doesn't have lines changes priority. Every coach will play their first line agaisnt DD (like Vigneault made the Sedins against DD and JM had to give DD 5min of play).
i'd roll with that as the regular strength lines for a bit...
Eller/Kost had some nice chemistry at times last year, and I think it would be worth giving Eller a shot to play in btw our two best wingers so far this year.
Cammy-Pleks should be able to perform together almost regardless of who plays on the other wing, and with Darche you have a guy that will work and a guy that can finish decently. Moen could be another option there.
as much as I liked the DD-Kost-MP line (i actually posted that as a line suggestion the day before they tried it out), I think DD and his playmaking/passing skills is what Cole needs to play with, by giving them Gio on the other wing, as opposed to Darche/Moen, it should help with getting the on the scoresheet and hopefully sparking cole
I'd go with that for 2-3 games, can't be much worse than what we have been producing, and hopefully at least 1 of those lines starts to really gel and starts producing.
AK-Eller-Moen is the best shot the team has of a second matchup line with Gomez out except maybe putting Gionta there instead of Moen and AK and Cole are interchangeable, but at least they have some familarility with eachother.
I'd like to see Eller and Pacioretty play together. I think they would make a great combo. Two guys with size, skill, and speed. They are not big hitters but they play the body and can lean on the opposing team in the offensive zone. Eller is looking better out there and he has the talent to be something special offensively.
