I'm guessing:

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
XXXX - Plekanec - Gionta
Prust - Eller - Bourque
Moen - XXXX - White
Nokelainen

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Kaberle - Bouillon
Diaz/Weber
Good potential lineup.

Gets better if you trade Diaz/Weber to get a physical DMan and put Kaberle as the 7th DMan.

Because I know that punching dudes in the face doesn't win games. Scoring more and allowing less goals does that.

And Montreal isn't going to win unless they get scoring from their 3rd line. That was the need to address today. Not punching people.

Prust won't be taking on Lucic, he's 5'11".

I forgot we signed Armstrong, he's likely on our 3rd line which might mean Bourque is bumped up to line 2.

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque - Plekanec - Gionta
Prust - Eller - Armstrong
Moen - Nokelainen - White
Gomez

Gorges - Subban
Markov - Emelin
Kaberle - Bouillon
Diaz/Weber


On the bright side, Leblanc/Galchenyuk/Gallagher won't have to be rushed to the NHL.

Yes, put 40+ points as the 7th dman.

Unbelievable.

I like that line up....the 3rd line will be tough to play against.

We need a big defensive defenseman.

I love your third line. I think both Armstrong and Prust are fit for the 3rd. They can produce 20-30 points if given the ice time, which is what you realistically expect from third liners.

I've made just one tiny adjustment to your line-up. As I said in the line-up thread, I want Diaz to take more room on our roster.

I was hoping for a skilled winger for Eller to develop his offensive game, having Prust and Armstrong as his wingers wont help him at all. Hope more is coming from MB.

Prust shrunk from 6'2'' to 6'0'' after that fight with Lucic in the 2nd video.

There's no bright side, if Bourque plays in the 2nd line. Just neverending agony.

Think again. Because you have a guy that will protect your smaller skilled guys they won't be afraid to play their game. We were pushed around by practically every team in the league. We won't be this year you can be sure of that Because we have guys like Prust and Armstrong who will stick up for these guys we'll be a much better team. You don't always need scoring from the 3rd line to win btw. Besides Armstrong and Prust aren't just fighters.

As I said on the main board thread, I really like getting 3 very solid bottom 6 players in Moen, Armstrong, and Prust for $5.35m!

We always have to overpay by about 500K. Did it last year with Cole and guess what, he was exactly what we needed. So we overpay Prust by 500K, the money we would have given to a Stan Darche. Who cares? To get what you need sometimes you pay a little more. When the $2 beer is way better than the $1.50 beer, you get the $2 beer every time.

Prust is overpaid by about 500k, I'm sure many teams would've paid 2M a year to get him, but being in Montreal we always have to overpay to get UFA's and 500k is no big deal with a 70M cap. So glad we got him would've preferred a 3 year deal though.

I'd much rather give that extra money to Prust over Darche.
