I don't like Josefson on the top LW but I guess there really isn't much option right now.

Playing RW and LW doesn't make a difference in the offensive zone, 5v5. It's an improv sport and players end up going to the open ice, not to a specific spot.

Playing RW and LW makes a huge difference in the defensive zone. Kovy is now in a better position to succeed in the defensive zone, and we can all agree he has improved in that regard.

Garbage.

TG can't even give us the defensive pairings in a straightforward manner?

I'm going to guess Henrique takes over that position by the end of the second period. Don't want to throw him out there immediately, though.

Pretty sure they have not had pairings in practice but I could be wrong.

Yea, TG just said that. I think he means only in morning skates though since I've definitely seen pairings in practice before.

Doubt it. Henrique will probably get around 12-15 minutes coming off the injury.

I don't think so. Not tonight at least. He is just coming back from an injury and probably hasn't practiced with the team much. He'll get 4th line time and probably some special team time to get him back into the swing of things for a few games.

Eventually it seems like a gander Petey will try out.

Larsson in for Fayne? Wow.. that's out of left field. I guess it makes sense though since Zidlicky is too valuable on the PP and Volchenkov too valuable on the PK. Sal, Greene and Tallinder have been playing very well.

I would probably take Tallinder out over Fayne but eh.. the kid is back!

Quick, someone post a trade rumor on the main boards that Larsson is being showcased tonight.

If Larsson takes Fayne's place and plays with Greene will that be a first? Can't remember them being paired together before.

Fayne has made one defensive mistake in 5 games. Volchenkov makes 5 a game. WTF?

You don't have to look further than the habs game in ot. kovy hit the post streaking down the right wing on the 3 on 1. Would he have scOred if he was on the left side? It's rhetorical but it should you thinking which side is he really suitd to be on

I love Mark Fayne. I wouldnt trade him straight up for Ryan O'Reilly. I want to see Larsson play but not for him. Even Andy Greene deserves a benching in front of Fayne.

Maybe Fayne is the most banged up. That would make some sense. Thought not a lot.

The last time Mark Fayne wasn't in the lineup was February 1st, 2011. He's played in the last 143 games. I guess he was due for a day off.
