Rads shouldn't see top 6 time, IMO. Especially if his defense could be suspect and his work ethic can be spotty. He might see PP time, but I HARDLY doubt he see's any ice time over Erat, AK, or SK.
In the beginning Rads WAS on the third line. He was, however, moved to the first line with Arnott and Dumont.

I would say he should get better. KHL is different, a lot more passing and combinations, a lot more space, so your D awareness should be better, reading the game...

SK has been good on that line, but we need him to feed his brother and feed off each other, in general. Throw Legwand in at center, I guess.

Has Wilson played center at all in his time here? We need this guy in our lineup, and more than 10 minutes.

Trotz said he doesn't wanna mess with SK/Fish/Marty. So if you assume Trotz is gonna' leave that alone and won't put a weak defensive line out there....

seems you have to put Rad with Horny and Leggy.
means AK with Spals and Willy.
Bourque with Goose and Smith/Toots.

Hals and Yip see the ice only if we get injuries.
and we still must get Josi back, or none of this is gonna' matter.....

As long as the Fisher line is producing I got no prob keeping that line intact but if they start to struggle I wouldn't hesitate to replace SK's spot with Rads. Not sure if he would want to play LW though.

Looks good but in reality I can't see Trotz moving Smith to center and Spaling to wing. Legwand with AK and SK would be great when all 3 are motivated however in games they aren't motivated that would be one passive bad line.

I think people are thinking too much about where to put Leggy/Smith/Wilson/etc.

I think it should be pretty simple from one standpoint.

Keep the SK-Fisher-Erat line together if they want, that's fine. What I do know is Radulov should be centered by Legwand if he's on line 2. For years we've been clamoring for another good wing to put on a line with him. We got AK and that's fine, but Radulov is really a first-line wing on a second line because of the whole "keep 74-12-10 together" thing. Assuming it stays that way. Maybe it doesn't. So whether it's AK, Wilson, Hornqvist or whoever, I think Legwand would really benefit from a guy of Rads' caliber on his line.

Agreed. I think Hornqvist would have an easier time transitioning to the left side than Rads.

That fourth line would be defensively responsible, and Spaling/Bourque would bring a lot of speed. It would still be a threat to score, too.

They won't be on the same line. They play same side and only one side...

my lines would never happen cause of trotz.. but with this much offensive talent, about equal to 06-07 I must say, I think its time we roll with more offensive lines. I have no doubt our "conservative" lines could come back to bite us (wilson limited playing time, smith on the 4th line, ect)

This would be my choice. I think we need a specified #1 line, and Erat-Fisher-Radulov would be the best we've had in years (on paper).

SK-Legwand-AK line I like. SK and AK have chemistry. Legwand turns up his compete level in the playoffs generally speaking.

I guess the only real question is if Smith can consistently play C.

In the long run, Tootoo would be in over Borque. I don't like seeing Halishuk sit but hard to justify a spot over these guys. Sitting all these good bottom 6ers really makes the Gaustaud trade look even more questionable. He better bring some serious intangibles to the PO run.

Sorry, mispunch, meant 46.

After seeing the SK-Legwand-AK unit on the power play, I want to to see what they can do at even strength. Legwand is the line's defensive conscience and can contribute to the line while the Kostitsyns work their magic.

Trotz will have plenty of forwards to rotate either in cases of a player needing rest, a player needing a wake up call, or situational needs. With that said, our top three lines are going to be plenty offensive. I think keeping Spaling in over Halischuk provides us with a more solid shutdown line.

yeah, and he was back on the third line later in the year too.

We ran:
sully-Arnott-Dumont
pk-legwand-erat
hartnell-forsberg-radulov
SHT line.

then sully got hurt, erat moved to the Arnott unit, Forsberg with legwand and pk and we had the infamous snowtires line with fiddler centering radulov and hartnell

Who do you feel we will need to shut down with are 4th line? The top two lines of the other team are normally the ones who kill us. Especially line 2.
