Laughton and Cousins' teams played each other today. Oshawa won 4-2. Laughton picked up an assist and Cousins scored a goal. Colin Suellentrop scored a goal and picked up an assist.

Cousins isn't much of a willing fighter. Apparently Cousins was in Laughton's face chirping him after Cousins scored a goal tonight.

Figured it was. But even if it wasn't I wouldn't have minded it. It's part of Cousins game and its what makes him effective.

Adirondack Phantoms rolled over Syracuse last night with a 6-1 win.

From what I read, Munroe with a great performance.

Here's the scoresheet: http://theahl.com/stats/game-summary...ame_id=1010566

Cousins was kind of in everyone's face with his goal celebration, it was that big. It was a beauty goal, scored in all alone - followed by a fist pump that started at the goal line and basically stretched to the blueline.

Cousins and Laughton mixed it up a few times - and Laughton threw some nice hits throughout the game, on other guys. Cousins certainly likes to pester, but most definitely does not get the benefit of the doubt when it comes to penalties - like a true Philadelphia Flyer.

Laughton seems to be playing with a bit more confidence since his return, watching his defensive awareness and committment is always mesmerizing. Cousins is the kind of player you would love to hate, not being on your team - but there is no denying his playmaking ability - sees the ice well and distributes the puck seamlessly.

And Colin Sullentrop's goal was a nice snipe too.

Gus had a goal, I really don't get why he's not the 6th d-man right now

Just like me.

One would think that offensive-minded defenders with a good 1st outlet pass like Gus would be well suited for Laviolettes system.

Since our top-4 plays solid, responsible D I'll be even happier when we get Meszaros back.

Timonen-Schenn
Coburn-Meszaros
Grossmann-Gustafsson

is what I really want to see.

3 pretty solid lines.

I'm okay with Gus taking his time. The defense has been clicking lately anyway.

The top 4 yeah but Foster has been bad and is consequently not getting minutes putting a strain on the others

Also if Gus is taken away from Adriondack they get even less offensively talented, though I presume the main reason is just that Holmgren wants Gus to get back into the swing of things and be consistent and the Flyers are playing somewhat better so a change isn't urgent.

From what I read from people watching the Phantoms, he's slowly getting back into form. Last night he was really good I read.

Can Laughton play wing? Either him or B. Schenn is going to have to be moved there. Wondered if anybody knew?

I'd guess Schenn is moved to the wing. I would like Laughton to stay at C and be that excellent defensive guy. I am hoping he can at least be close to what Mike Richards was.

I'd prefer Giroux move back to wing (eventually, obviously) if Schenn, Couturier, and Laughton exceed G's defensive capabilites, with either Schenn or Couturier centering the top line. I see Laughton as more of a 3rd line center in the future.

Hartnell-Couturier-Giroux
Briere-Schenn-Voracek
Cousins-Laughton-Simmonds
Sestito-Talbot-Rinaldo

Something like that?

Yes, aside from the previously pointed Read escape. I wouldn't be surprised if Read is plugged in to replace Briere on your lineup.

I'd imagine that by the time Couturier is ready/able to take on the 1C role Briere would be off the team. This roster also leaves off McGinn who may be able to slide into Read's spot if Read slides up to Briere's slot.

Couturier will never ever be the #1 C on this team. His ceiling is more like Rod Brind'amour or Jordan Staal, which is still incredibly valuable for a team.

Couts is just not a natural scorer, not even an elite playmaker. I think 65pts are pretty much what they will get out of him on a regular basis in his prime besides him shutting down the opposition and dominating the PK. No way G is ever moved to wing for Couts.
