Great, when Brown returns we could possibly have the most ineffective fourth line in the history of hockey

Don't know why people keep saying he's going to replace Orr. Carlyle already came outright in an interview and said Colton will play all 48 games if healthy.

I like having two forwards as extra on the team. If somebody in the top 9 is playing like crap you have the option to send them to the press box for a game or two. With this movie, I feel like Carlyle does not want Orr and Brown to do all the heavy lifting for the team, when it comes to fighting. Frazer will take the pressure of them and so will Fraser to. All this is for the big showdown Saturday against the Bruins. Orr, Fraser, Mclaren and Brown is a tough as nails team.

This.

Most Leaf fans have already wrote that game off as a loss anyways. At least set the tone for future games. The Isles have made the Pens their ***** after the game that Gillies and Haley went crazy.

It does but you need a healthy balance really.

Is McLaren suppose to replace Orr or something or a temp replacement for Brown?

I'd put him on the first line with Kessel and just have him run around out there, if not for at least a shift or two.

What I don't get is people are comfortable putting guys like Mac on the 4th line with Steckel, etc. Mac can't put up points with 15+ minutes of ice-time. Wtf is he going to do with 5 minutes...

Temp, maybe Brown will be out for a while.

Our 4 line won't cost us games though, if they play their 7-8 minutes a game check everything in sight, and not be a liability while providing toughness, then they have done their job. Our fourth line has been decent all year, except Steckel he does not belong.

I don't care it's entertaining, if we lose we have a healthy choice of picks

They think all four lines should be fast scoring lines, but in reality that's not how the game is played. I just laugh at people who posted suggestions like Frattin, Steckel Komarov as their forth line. They don't realize that other teams would feast on this and impose their will on us (like last year), and they say silly things like "durr durr Komi, Phaneuf and Mcarthur will keep the other teams in check, so for toughness will be fine" Plus with Kadri and Komarov on the lineup being the team pests you need players out there to let them play their game and not feel uncomfortable.

Precisely. Good to see we've smartened up in this regard; let's hope it pays dividends.

This is definitely for the Boston game. Tired of getting our ***** kicked (both physically and on the score sheet)
