Well thats actually a bit better then, I never knew that.. it'd be best to see Gorges/Subban as our big minute pairing again with Markov/Emmy as our second pairing then a combo of Kaberle/Bouillon/Diaz as our third pair but I guess there is no point in worrying about it now since who knows when we'll even play again.

Bourque is injured so hes all the way to the other side of the board.

Then there's Galchenyuk and Leblanc on the 5th line... not sure if this is entirely accurate, im missing Gallagher somewhere I think.

I've always wanted to see a top 6 forward lines like this especially since the injury to Bourque:

Every line has a playmaker and 2 shooters...every line has a great defensive pivot and size is well distributed...Cole can create space for Eller and Gio...meanwhile Gio can get more shots on net because Eller is good at dishing the puck and protecting it...

Desharnais stays with Patches and Pleks gets two excellent wingers!

I rather convert Desharnais to wing opposed to center since Eller is better positioned to play a 2 way game than Desharnais, and Desharnais can still be a set up man ala Tanguay

Gionta-Eller-Cole
Patches-Pleks-Desharnais

Gallagher as RW with Gomez-White on the 4th.

Geoffrion-Galchenyuk-Leblanc was 5th.

Nokelainen was on the 6th line.

I'd say the board says nothing but that he's thinking about reasonably sensible training camp experiments.

You'd really want to know before the season if Prust or White can hack it at center, Gomez can play LW, how Eller looks with Plekanec-Gionta and whether Gorges and Kaberle have synergy.

There are some pretty good combinations for the AHL guys too.

We will think back on this as a cruel joke, I'm sure. Therrien even looks like he's trolling in the picture somewhat. Will the reporter that leaked this get into trouble?

Well it's either have him on the wing, or have him play with scrubs. Pick your poison.

I'd love to see a Markov - Subban duo! With Kaberle - Gorges and Emelin - Diaz/Bouillon filling out the pairings.

If he makes him play top 6 and gives him pp time as well I don't mind to be honest. He will eventually adjust

People are overreacting like crazy. That Subban is on the third pairing means nothing. For all we know he's still organizing his trios/pairs to form various training camp teams, lines and combos for pre-season game.

If Prust is decent at center, then its a new option given to Therrien. No reason he shouldn't try it if Prust says he's comfortable with playing center.

If Eller wants to play on the top6 and show what he can do offensively, he needs to play wing.

Therrien probably wants to try multiple and various defense pairings. If by some miracle all 3 have perfect chemistry then he's going to roll 3 good pairings. More likely they are going to change a few mins into practice.

Play with scrubs. No sense putting him on the wing and rendering him ineffective. Might as well force him to produce with scrubs in the position he is best at.

Balanced, but not very good. Subban has the puck too much to play with Markov, not sure I like it. Kaberle is a lugger too. Ideally all three are on separate lines, so someone has to be third line.

Which means Bouillon is either pressbox or with Subban?

Markov-
Gorges-Subban
Kaberle(please)-

What we have doesn't work...not enough muscle either.

People should chill down. Therrien is trying stuff and thats what training camp is all about.

I like the idea of having 3 balanced Defensive pairings...and I think by putting Bouillon-Subban as the 3rd pairing on the board didn't mean Subban is playing on the 3rd pairing. It means that Therrien wants to put that pairing with Moen-Prust-Arm which would provide a full hitting/checking line. Subban can still doubleshift with Gorges from time to time during the game and will probably be playing on the 1st PP and 1st PK.

The only thing that I didnt like is Gomez-White-Gallagher as the 4th line. But otherwise, good combos.

To be fair, this is pretty much the only legit Habs news we are going to get until whenever the CBA is signed (aside from our players signing with Euro teams).
