I don't know if you've noticed, but aside from Booth and the twins, the entire team is made up of defensively responsible forwards, so.....
Even the twins are defensive because they play a puck possession game. Are we actually just looking for things to ***** about now?
I know we have a team full of good defenders. We don't have many players that can generate much offense aside from the twins, and with Kesler/Booth being out (you know, 2/3 of our second line), it's going to get much tougher to score.
Not as a lineup staple. I'm sure they'll see time together off and on. For now, Palmieri is on the top line.
So now it's the PPG line.

I've been thinking more about our current lineup, and think we can squeak out wins to stay in the playoff picture. This is the year we pull an LA, get Kesler and Booth back at the right time, get a good top six winger that compliments them in a return for Luongo and win the Cup or at least go deep.
The lineup we ice right now, we can play trap hockey because we have so many good defensive forwards. Out defense is solid, and hearing how good Garrison has looked with Edler in the practices, I'm even more confident. Two solid goalies right now too. We'll be in a lot of 2-1, 1-0 games I think.
