Disagree. He put him down there to simplify his game, and b/c he knows Lucic has produced on every line he's ever played on.

What has Horton ever done w/o someone handing him a gimme? He'd do even less moved down to that line.

One of the biggest problems w/ LKH is speed. Now they have that in Marchand.

Agree, I don't think Claude is out to punish anyone with this shakeup. I think he's just trying to find some different chemistry and make to unproductive lines productive again.

How long you going to live off that...yesterday is in the rear view mirror?
It's all about what your doing today!

In sports more than anything this is so true.


What he did in the past is nice. What he is doing today, and what is he capable of doing in the future is very important.

It's completely impossible to judge this without looking at Horton's past. This argument works against itself very well.

There is far more focus on the former then the latter, especially here. This is true for all players, and has led to some classics such as "Kovalchuk is washed up", "Recchi needs to be waived", and "Thomas is an at best backup goalie". If there were more focus on the latter what he's done in the past takes center stage and at that point you realize Horton is a 60+ point player who is recovering from a nasty concussion.

No one is engaging Lucic because they know he fights better when angry and also they know he is sleeping right now and it's best to let a sleeping giant sleep.
Yes, it's probably a little overboard to suggest he run a goalie, but he needs to engage someone. Do something, show some emotion, give himself that boost he dearly needs.

He's been going through the motions, and every team in the eastern conference is just fine letting him snore through the season. No one else is going to wake him, he needs to do it himself.

I was hoping CJ would do this. I highly doubt he is punishing anyone. When you shake up lines some people have to move up and some have to move down. CJ is just trying to put together some lines that he thinks will work. Hopefully his changes will show results tonight.

I liked those new lines.

Any idea why he took Lucic off line 3? I thought it gave them crazy depth. That line was giving Toronto so many headaches.

I'm sorry, Caron is not a 1st liner. Heck, I'm not even convinced they should have let him out of Providence! 3rd/4th liner at best. We're not likely to get Iginla so I guess our best hope is to wait for the Yeti to show up!
