2012-2013 Lineup thread (post FA period)

Time for a new lineup thread. If the season would start tomorrow, I guess this is what we would have

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

Emelin-Subban
Markov-Gorges
Kaberle-Bouillon
Diaz

Price
Budaj

Not exciting, but not bad. Size and skills on all lines. An intriguing fourth line. Gomez might help Eller with setting up plays. Leadership is good throughout the lineup. The defense is suspect though. We need Tinordi, Beaulieu, and Ellis to grow up fast!

With the new Coach , a different system and a healthy MArkov and Gionta , this is a playoff team , no doubt in my mind.
If we can manage to trade Weber and give Diaz no more than 10-12 minutes/night i really like this defense

Love your lineup. That's also the way I see it. I would give that 4th line a lot of ice time.

Prust - White - Moen will be so awesome. I can't stand the third defence pairing. It needed a big, physical mean presence. I don't hate Bouillon, but unless we're stacking another Bouillon on his shoulders, it just continues the smurf stereotype. He's a solid player but he's not going to scare anybody, which is what I felt the D was lacking. A big mean ******* to keep other teams honest.

Boullion is about as mean as it gets... size doesn't matter, what matters is if he plays big which he does.

I agree. That 4th line should play a lot of even-strenght minutes.

Dont bother making the lines, the only thing we know is that the Cole DD Pac line will probably be reunited to start the season and that Pleks and Gio have their spot locked on the second line, everthing else is pure speculation and expected to change anytime..

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
X - Plekanec - Gionta
Bourque - Eller - Armstrong
Moen - White - Prust
Noke/Gomez

Markov - Subban
Kaberle - Gorges
Bouillon - Emelin
Diaz

If we could add a guy like Doan/Clowe/Morrow to play on our second line our team could be looking pretty solid.

Sure for reach, but in terms of being physical it doesn't matter.

Could a shove happen? Something like this:

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

Not the way I want it, but could this be successful? I have a feeling Gallagher will have a big camp again and why not try what last worked with Gomer?

This is different, I actually like this a lot. I'd switch DD and Eller just cause Eller looks so out of place on the wing and Desharnais can do a better job on the wing creating things than Eller would. This lineup doesnt look too bad pending Gallagher has a strong showing and Gomez is .. somewhat useful

I would put Markov/Gorges together cause Gorges can play any side. Subban/Emelin so Emelin can play his natural side and his hitting will be more effective. When he played on his natural side there was way more open ice hits and playing on the other side his hitting went down quite a bit. Boullion/Kabs

If we don't add a winger, I hope Therrien breaks the MP-DD-EC line or we'll be having another miserable season. He has to find a way to have 2 good offensive line. I'd put Bourque with DD and Cole, Max with Plek and Gio.
