Yeah lets trade our second leading goal scorer to Pittsburgh..Im sure they are more than willing to take on 7.5 Million dollar cap hit too...NOT. This isn't NHL 13. Heatley isn't going anywhere.

Coyle will not be a "26 goal scorer" this year. He probably won't be for at least 3 years. Take off the shiny new toy glasses and use your head here. Heatley is the best option on that line. Period.

No choice but to leave Heater on that top line for now. Coyle is no where near ready and that 2nd line has been playing so good the last couple games I don't see how you can break it up.

Where you at now Beegoalie? Coyle scores first game back. You coming over to the Heatley sucks team yet, I know Yeo is having put him on the 4th and 2nd lines to see if anything would work for that piece of garbage player. Watch when he is on the fourth line next game.

Time for Heatley to get a reality check. Bench his ****ing ass now!!! Just because he's a long time pro and is making bank doesn't get him special immunities, or whatever immunity he had left is long gone after tonight. I'd roll with these lines:

Parise - Koivu - Coyle
Zucker - Cullen - Seto
Bouchard - Granlund - Mitchell
Rupp - Konopka - Brodziak

Those are awful. Why Brodziak on the 4th line wing? Let me guess, because you desperately wanted Granlund in the line-up? He is one of our better players defensively, and his line at least worked very well, producing our lone tally.

Well if Heater is sitting then there's no other forward to play but Granlund, unless we call up someone like Larsson from Houston. However, if Granlund either sits for another game or gets sent down to Houston then I'd go with:

Parise - Koivu - Coyle
Zucker - Cullen - Seto
Bouchard - Brodziak - AHL call-up
Rupp - Konopka - Mitchell

Personally, I really liked what I saw when PMB was up on the top line last night.

Parise-Koivu-Bouchard

Leave the speed line alone;

Zucker-Cullen-Setoguchi

Which leaves three perfect players to balance each other out;

Granlund-Brodziak-Heatley
Granlund would be the play-maker which is his strength. Brodziak, the board battler. Heatley floats in the RW slot and in front of the net.

Simply put, Parise has been trying to cover both LW and RW sides the last handful of games. So much so, that I have lost count the number of times where I have sat there scratching my head as to why Parise was coming in on the RW side...

Full lines:
Parise-Koivu-Bouchard
Zucker-Cullen-Setoguchi
Granlund-Brodziak-Heatley
Rupp-Konopka-Mitchell

Coyle goes back to Houston.

Edit: It should be noted that I am not assigning a number to any line. PKB, ZCS, GBH lines would eat up a lot of ice time.

I actually like these lines and agree that Coyle could go back to Houston.

I hope Yeo tries something like this out for at least two games, and just stops with this ****ing line-boggle bs.

As a player it was always really frustrating when you were constantly playing with different linemates. I can only imagine what the Wild players are feeling, and it really is no wonder they only show up for a few shifts when they get pissed. They're not enjoying this game at all, and it shows, a lot lately, imo.

Eh. I think Brodziak is starting to look a little better.

I would also rather have Brodziak as 3c than Granlund. Granlund needs to be on wing until he's a litte stronger.

Parise-Koivu-Bouchard(hate him but likely choice if not Heater right now.)
Zucker-Cullen-Setoguchi
Heatley-Granlund-Coyle
Rupp-Brodziak-Mitchell
Konopka

Like the look mostly of those lines.

I really liked what I saw of PMB on the top line as well. maybe he can explode (like a certain detroit prospect) if he is given first line minutes while playing with quality skilled guys, because I think pmb should be a top 6 guy to be effective. he added so much speed and playmaking right away. they should play granlund or send him to houston. pretty much in agreement here

Why dont we try Zucker out on the 1st line?

I know we'd like to keep our 2nd line but we've seen coyle on line 1 and hasnt done anything with them yet.

Zucker would have the speed to match parise to chase a puck when we dump and chase..

Forgot about Zucker. Well get him in there and rotate Heatley, Rupp, and Mitchell on the fourth line.

Me like these lines. (Except maybe use th3 2nd "speed" line as the "checking" line).

Another option,

Parise - Koivu - Setoguchi
Granlund - Brodziak - Heatley
Bouchard - Cullen - Zucker/Coyle
Mitchell - Konopka - Rupp

You brought in Seto as a top line winger and Parise as a top line winger, try them with your top line center for FIVE GAMES. Just do it for SEVERAL GAMES. Not for two shifts or dink around. Stick with a line for a bit.

Put Brodziak with Heatley, they looked decent last year together. They had a grinder on their line, so in theory putting a higher end player like Granlund should be an upgrade.

Butch is a skill guy, not a fourth liner. Put him with some offensive guys. Cullen has shown a little life. Put a young kid on that line too, whichever you want, send the other down.

And the fourth liners should take many draws in the D zone and get the puck out.

Spreads the kids out and gives two players that deserve it (Seto and Granlund) an honest shot.

Those are good lookin' lines, for many reasons.

I like Seto up there. Don't know why it hasn't been tried yet, given everything else that has been tried, but people who know more than us make these decisions, right

Per Russo: Heatley has been moved to the 3rd line, Coyle with Koivu and Parise. 2nd line intact and once again Granlund and Konopka rotating on the 4th line. This is really starting to get ridiculous.

I really like Konopka's solid performaces on the ice. It's better to keep the team together as much as possible so I'd send Granlund down for now. It's no good to rotate them so often.

I can't imagine any of those lines consistently producing offense.
