IMO bullseye squarely on Kadri, he's gonna get popped big time. Even Cherry alluded to having to drop the gloves, which may not be necessary, but expect a big hit on him. Someone needs to do it no matter what neanderthals the leafs have. At least when PK hits, he moves on. And they said he lacked class...
Now I miss Emelin. Just to wipe him out clean the Emelin way.

I don't know why this should be such a controversial stance. He's the weakest forward
In our top 9. I don't hate him. He just doesn't bring enough to the table is all.
Big difference between Top-9 and first line though....

Therrien needs to come to the realization that when Prust plays on the Eller line, then that line becomes the best Habs line.

So where do you play Ryder or Gallagher ? Gionta should be the man out of the top-9, but we all know it won't happen anytime soon.

I know I will get blasted for this but I will say it anyways. This team became a top team with Bourque not in the lineup.

Putting Bourque with Pleks changes the dynamics of 3 lines.

The Pleks line was doing great with Ryder.
The Eller line was doing great with Prust.
The DD line was doing great as it was.
The 4th line was always D only.

Now Prust is wasted. Ryder is useless. The Eller line is not as effective.

Chemistry is screwed up. Bourque on the 4th. Having him with Pleks may help Bourque but it hurts the Team.

Bourque on Eller's wing instead of Ryder is a better thought in my book.

I've not read this entire thread, but here are my humble observations about Eller:

If you play physical against him, he disappears. The Leafs abused him all day and he seemed more concerned with protecting himself than making plays. He is probably a 3 center.

That explains why he's been great against Boston this year.

He does? I didn't notice any disappearing act. Matter of fact, I noticed him going back at the guys.

This is the reason Prust needs to be on the Eller line. Eller plays bigger. So does Chuckie.

Ryder does nothing for this line. Neither would Bourque.

I cannot belive that Therrien does not see that removing Prust from this line turns it into an ineffective line.

Eller looked intimidated to me last night. He should have tried Kadri after that hit. Gallagher had much more of a response when Kadri went after him.

I think Southern Hab is right about the chemistry.

I'd bench Desharnais and play White.

Pacioretty - Plekanec- Gionta
Bourque - Eller - Ryder
Prust - Galchenyuk- Gallagher
Moen - Halpern - White

No offense to you or Eller. Ryder and Eller are not a good combination together.

Ryder needs to be where he was scoring.....with Pleks passing him the puck and Gio going in the corners to retrieve the pucks. That was the highest scoring line on our team. And Bourque on that line disrupts it.

Halpern might help Pacioretty and Gallagher.

Prust belongs to Eller and Chuckie.

And this is why the last time we have played in playoff, 2010-11, Eller was the best forward at even strength, in game #5, #6 and #7, and create the only ES goal in last 3 games with a dislocated shoulder? Yeah, I see ...

Yes and no, the ones benching the Quebecois will be a Quebecois coach backed by his Quebecois GM.

Oh and **** the media, they don't coach the team.

Who cares? Desharnais has been rotten, and a small center who isn't producing can sit and think about it... White, Weber, Kaberle, etc all have sat in the press box. Maybe it would wake him up. French or not.

White would add a spark that's been missing in the lineup lately and his game is much more suited for the playoffs.

We definitely miss Emelin.

Our offense was non-existent last night. Emelin wouldnt have helped much with that though.

Would have like to see a bit more of a response by the team to the Kadri hit on Eller last night, but I guess when you're forced to play catch-up hockey you dont want to take stupid penalties. While he didn't have a great game last night, I didn't mind Eller's play.

That's not what you said. You said Eller disappears when he gets pushed around, as if he backs away and gets intimidated.
He kept going at it with McQuaid versus the Bruins. Yesterday was no different, after getting drilled blindside by Kadri, he got up and looked for him.

His line didn't produce, like most players on our team. However, they have a few good instances where they absolutely dominated and controlled the play in the offensive zone.
