Seems like a thread out to bash Torts. Could have just stayed in the GDT.

This move means nothing, Richards will still play more then most of the forwards.

If Avery - Richards - Feds line gets going, they will get run.

While not a big believer in Boyle, I'm going to be interested in seeing how that trio makes out tonight. Not a playmaker amongst them, so there's going to be alot of net crashing going on there.

Should be a fun game.
I am too. I agree with your assessment of how Torts doles out playing time to his lines. The line numbers are kind of irrelevant if Richards and linemates are getting their fair share of the pie.

Dolan couldn't care less about the Rangers!

i mean seriously, not a single person on this board ever though of doing AA-Stepan-Gabby and right now that line has pretty much carried us through most of this winning streak.
thank you for saying this so i didnt have to

He got a point when he lost a faceoff at center ice and Cally turned it into a scoring chance. Boyle will not stay with that line for very long; he's a 4th liner; period.

It wont last, I cant believe he sees Boyle on the 2nd line. The dude has bad hands and zero speed, hes a big body and a DECENT skater but thats it. He gets pushed off the puck so easily for his size.

I really feel like Torts is just seeing what works with what guys against what teams.

This may be the kinda thing that changes depending on the opponent

This is all about distributing talent across as many lines as possible. This isn't high school where you can roll two lines and consistently win games.

That being said, the timing is peculiar.

I don't mind the line juggling these days, now that we actually have the depth to pull it off, and that is what is important. If the top 3 sets of lines can all get it done, who cares who plays with who then?

Hahaha, that stuff is gold

But, back on topic. I like Richards centering Avery and Feds. He can make that line productive. I personally think we need to break up Cally and Dubinsky.
