Edit* I think I read quick and overreacted (but I'll leave it in case I was right lol), but I HOPE you meant mix up lines 2-4...

Hopefully once Upshall comes back he can get his game going. He's been awful. Not just point wise

Yeah, swapping out Flash for say Dadanov and Moving Flash to the second line with Santorelli could pay dividends. Dads has the skill the play with Weiss and Versteeg. Something has to be done to spark the second and third line offensively. Whose to say Flash and Santorelli and Kopecky don't have great chemistry? And Weiss, Dads, and Versteeg have great chemistry too? Only way to find out is to mix it up for a game or two.

We're winning and that's the only line producing. We need more offense. When David Backes' line shut them down in St. Louis we got beat. We're going to need more offensive production. Not sure what you think will solve the lack of scoring from the second and third line. My suggestion is hardly asinine.

he has had numerous big hits, despite being only 5'11 or 6'0. he was also a tenacious forchecker.

the only thing he wasnt contributing was goals. he was getting chances, but not finishing them.

He wasn't playing well, imo. He was okay at best and that's probably being generous.

He was DoA. Damn Vancouver for giving us broken crap.

I heard he's been skating though, so he could be back this week at the earliest.

Feel the same. Seems most have felt that way.

no its not asinine. its either extremely bold or foolish, but you really couldnt tell until after you tried it. i actually think youre better off going with santorelli, dadanov, and kopecky on that second line and letting them build some chemistry. santorelli and dadanov have played well for a few games now so id like to see them together a little bit. kopecky doesnt seem to fit that line well because he isnt that fast, but hes really the best offensive forward outside of VW Flash.

The nice thing about Flash is that he is the type of player that makes people around him better. His playmaking skills are phenomenal. He will boost any line he is put on, so I agree with perhaps juggling him around and spreading the wealth, if you will.

That's a fair way to put it and I even suggested this before against a Western Conference team since we're worried about losing. But something has to be done. I think we can get Santorelli going with higher end talent, he can finish and Flash could be that guy. One game is worth experimenting. Not like Wiess and Versteeg would be out of it. Plus, PP lines would stay the same.
