Replace Plekanec with Eller on that line. Trade Plekanec or play him on the 4rth line.

True. Wasn't the lines I wanted though.

Like I said;

Patches - DD - Eller (let Eller take the draws)
Bourque - Pleks - Gio
Cole - Gally - Gally
Prust - White - Moen

It's minimal changes, but big enough changes that it should spark something. And I think the energy the kids give off might be something that could get Cole's head back into the game. Patches and DD aren't slow, but Cole will actually have to use his top-end speed to keep up with the kids.

Not angry/pissed about the loss, just saw it as a great learning experience for the team. The guys are playing well, it could have been 3-0 after the first period if not for Rask, Tim who? Things just did'nt click and there will be games like that. boston hung around long enough and got it done in the end, good team, cup winner and they took advantage of their chances. Move on.

I'd probably swap Gally and Cole. I know Brendan is a natural RW, but I think he'll adapt better to LW than Cole will. IMO, there's no reason to give Cole any more excuses to suck.

The top line is interesting. I wouldn't necessarily let Eller take all the draws, I'm not convinced he's superior to DD on the dot...yet. Since they're on the same line, though, it makes it a lot easier to try swapping them as an experiment. I'd really like to see that happen.

The only thing all that bad about the 2nd is that Galchenyuk`s line got caught in its end a couple times.

Top six had a solid game overall generating chances. Can`t win without converting on them but as a measuring stick game against a top squad in the East Habs look pretty good.

I wouldn`t get too concerned about a little snakebite.

Good thing Boston wasn't on their game it would have been 7-1. Hab's still need some rebuilding obviously.

Bourque-Plekanec-Gionta
DD-Eller-Cole
Patches-Gally-Gally
Moen-White-Prust
We need that, our first line is okay, today is the exception.
What we need to do is create energyy lines...
All the line's have speed right now.
If you want the second to work, Cole need's to drive the net WITHOUT THE PUCK. DD passes, Eller shoots. I know this look's really stereotyped but I'm sure it could work.
The third line get's soft minutes and FIRST PP and now our best passer has 2 great shooters and we have maybe one of the fastest line in the NHL here.
Moen is slow on the fourth, but he's not exposed because Armstrong is not there.

Also MT gives a wake-up call to Cole, if it doesnt work he's benched.

MT PLEASE READ THIS.

I like our team but i dont know when we gonna get that elite top line player. Galchenyuk will become one but none of our wingers outside pacioretty will ever hit 60points ever again and once or defenseman stop producing its gonna get ugly.. i would really apprecuate if soon rather than later we could a player like that..

He played average. White brings more emotion/energy.

I think he played below average. Maybe not that awful, but sitting him sends the message that vets aren't allowed to coast. Next stop is sitting Cole or demoting Gionta to the 3rd/4th line, but they won't do that yet.

Absolutely. I didn't know what to expect from Army, but the other two have been disappointing, for sure.

No, but a better season than last year, yes.

Remember, this parity world has induced highly variable fortunes for many teams, especially us.

I'm curious, what lines would you put together?

Anyone disappointed by Pacioretty ? He has some assists but he's not playing well and I don't remember him taking a solid sog this season yet. We need his goals.
