Erat-Fisher-SK
Wilson-Legwand-Hornqvist (our best line last night)
Smith-Spaling-Bourque
Yip-Gaustad-Halischuk

That lineup is 100x better

Definitely needs more Richard Clune; need those PIMs / unnecessary boardings.

I haven't seen a good look at his hit, just saw it live with a bad angle, but other than that, I liked the energy. Don't mind him as a 13th forward playing instead of McG.

Why are you looking at dogs wangs?

Trigg, Yip does an adaquate job as a 4th liner, his weakness is taking penalties. The 4th line is not the place to develop top six talent so Watson on the 4th is just a terrible idea. With that said Trotz uses the 4 line for alot. He has negitively effected many players over the years working them on the 4th line, while other players with far less talent have been placed on the other three lines.

Ahh but here's the fault in that. Trotz rolls his lines, all are built the same way, and all are supposed to be playing the same system, meaning there's no "checking line" or "crash line" or lol "scoring line".

The bottom 6 is so much better when Borky is in there. You got to love his mix of speed, aggressiveness,grit and talent.

His play style is perfect for us. And he's good. I love him, he makes players around him better.

Always the sign of a good player, like Bobby Orr, or Larry Byrd in basketball.

Since Bourque was called up, the Admirals signed Brad Winchester, former UW Badger and Dallas Stars player, to a PTO. His 390 NHL games and 6'5" frame should help the team in a few areas.

There's quite a bit of speculation that this a tryout for Winchester to take that fourth line LW spot in Nashville. I don't think he'll be in Milwaukee for very long. Much more useful player than Clune.

possible tweener, hopefully the first suggestion ... I'd have loved it if he'd scored on that outlet pass from Ryan Ellis last night ... damn that was a beaut

I think he will end up a tweener. Great 3rd line/energy/tenacious/pk guy, but won't embarrass himself if having to play top 6 for a small stretch

Seeing alot of the northeast division here, he reminds me of a Brad Marchand. Fiesty, will hit anyone no matter the size differential, top6/top9 scoring potential.

Glad to have him back, this team really misses his physical presence more than anything.
