Tootoo - Spaling - Hornqvist
Halischuk - Smith - Bourque

What I'd like to try soon:

Erat - Fisher - Wilson
SK - Legwand - AK
Tootoo - Smith - Hornqvist
Halischuk - Gaustad - Spaling
Wilson is a lefty, like Erat. Why not keep Erat on the right and Wilson on the left?

So...with the addition of AK, Gaustad, and the calling up of Ellis, we added 3 players to the roster today...and no one is sent down?
We'll take Bourque and Ellis. Then Milwaukee can send Blum to Cincinnati.

I love Goose and Toots together, but Wilson certainly is an odd choice.

Well, it would technically be closer to Nashville than Milwaukee, so he might not mind that.

I told hipcheck85 last night that Tootoo Wilson and Gaustad should play together. Tootoo and Wilson have shown a ton of chemistry that for whatever reason Spaling doesn't seem to capitolize on. Actually if it were my choice Spaling would sit and watch a bit, everyone else seems to be producing more than him lately.

I'd be ok with Spals sitting Saturday provided Goose is healthy enough to take his place.

id prefer a line of toots gaustad halischuk/bourque/spaling

keep the guys with actual top 6 talent on our team (which is rare) playing with other talented guys. our bottom 6 is good enough to keep it balanced without the wilson's, smith's, etc..

sk fisher erat
wilson legwand ak
bourque/spaling/halischuk smith hornqvist
tootoo gaustad spaling/halischuk/yip

for some reason 22 and 33 have some chemistry right now, I'd hate for Trotz to break it.

while I agree, I'm thinking playoffs.. I dont see a tootoo gaustad wilson line being too effective. wilson has shown so much skill to be paired with toots and gaustad, I feel it hinders him. throw chemistry out the door. I also think the chemistry between toots and wilson is more of wilson being that good with the puck on the boards and gaining the zone

Seems like Wilson-Gaustad-Tootoo could be one of those 3rd lines that does incredible things in the playoffs. Spaling works in there too, really it's just been Wilson-Tootoo getting the production, just hard working, body banging, pucks to the net type of production. Don't mess with that, it's unlikely to come from any other tandem.

AK needs to be with one of Erat, SK, or Wilson else we're just wasting his talent IMO. This team is running too thin on playmakers to use Wilson on the 3rd line with a couple of grinders (even though I would really enjoy that line).

this ...

like I said.. we're low enough on top 6 talent. why waste one of the few we have by playing with tootoo and gaustad? ..

Who do you replace?

With AK and Goose now in the lineup and Bourque playing so well, Halischuk seems like the odd man out

I wish we could play Halischuk on the 4th line at even strength and only use 27 on the powerplay. 13 forwards, no Bouillion

Halischuk's nickname should be changed from Hustlechuk to Halishaft.

Trotz said he'll rotate them a bit so they are all ready playoffs comes around.
By them he ment Smith, Hali, Bourque and Yip.

We'll see how it pans out, I think of the the rest 18 games:
Smith 14, Yip 6, Gabriel 10, Hali 6.
