Terry Sawchuk of 50 years ago or today? (Yeah, I know he's dead)

Let's see how Drewiske handle OV line....
So many things wrong with this, I don't even...

First, both Alec Martinez and Keaton Ellerby are good defenseman. They are also both younger and controllable (RFA), which is a good reason to keep them.

LA has constantly been praised for their defensive depth.

Quick is a very good goalie, but he gets a lot of help from an incredible defensive unit.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying Drewiske is a Top-4 defenseman, but Beaulieu is not a Top-4 guy this point. I'd rather take the guy with NHL experience at this point.

This... On your fourth line.

Nothing to see here folks see you at the celebratory PGT.
Bourque will play on the 4th line, not because of depth, but because it's his first game in months. Prust, unfortunately, will move down a line when Bourque's ready to move up.

Why is that unfortunate? All it means is that the Habs have regained some of their depth.

By unfortunate, I meant for him, not us. Prust has played great this year and deserves quality TOI, but we have too much depth for him to get it.

Well Therrien uses his fourth more than the typical coach, so I'm fine with this. Brings a bit more offense to the line too.

That was Lucic's only contribution of the evening. Some benighted lout on the Bruins board said that he would take the loss to put Emelin out of action. Julien would have infinitely preferred Lucic to score.

A 4th line of Prust-Halpern-Moen would have been our 3rd line a couple years ago.

Dagenais was a winger ; not a D-man.

I think it is if the Devils lose too. But I don't want them to lose, as that means a Boston win...

Of course it's because of depth. You think Bourque would be playing on the 4th line if our top six had trouble scoring goals with Moen on one of the wings?

MT has the luxury of being able to slowly integrate him back into the game thanks to our productive depth. Otherwise he would have gone straight back to where he was.

I'm more concerned about being outscored now that Ovechkin has revived (as have the Caps).
