So did Bouchard after getting back in the lineup. Then he disappeared again. Look at the body of work.

If Yeo is going down he might as well go down with all his grinders. Let him call up another fourth liner and roll three grind lines. Why not?

Our whole team actually showed up last night, and for once Clutterbuck actually did what he was supposed to be doing all year.

But, there's no way in hell they could keep that up for many games. Our whole team also looked completely gassed in the third, and that was not one of LA's better games.

I'm not tryng to be debby downer at all, I'm quite happy that we won, but this does not change my impression of Yeo at all, or his decisions.

We get into the second round, then I'll consider it.

There's been too much of the same bs this year and even last. This team has to work themselves to death to win, and that's on this system.

Pominville could easily keep up with Cullen and Seto AND has the skill to score with a solid playmaker like cullen. Plus he is physical enough. No comparison to clutterbuck, but what Pommer adds far exceeds the need for physicality on that line. Clutterbuck wasn't a bad choice, but there was a much much better one in Pominville.

Put Clutter back on the third line and you have two very good scoring lines and one very solid checking line. Rather than 2 mediocre scoring lines at 2 and 3.

Not much sense in talking about what Pommer brings to the team, I don't think we'll see him until next year.

I wonder if Clutter at LW would spark his offense. Obviously he loves to shoot high and wide from the RW. If he likes to miss to the right, having him on the LW means he'll hit the net more. I know I score more from my off wing when I'm using an open toe curve...

At this point, hell, let's just go all-in on Yeo's grinding system. We've tried every combination of offensive players and outside of a few weeks of Parise-Koivu-Heatley and whoever-Cullen-Setoguchi, it's been pretty cold up and down the lineup. If he's going down, go down with his ship.

That was my immediate thought when Clutterbuck scored the goal last night.

I would imagine he gets poke-checked more often on that wing due to handedness, though.

In theory it will hurt his puck play along the boards and passing ability but improve his shooting angle a fair amount on the rush. Puck is probably 6+ feet closer to the middle of the ice which gives him a better angle.
