Komisarek is the extra defenseman (unfortunately, but i believe he has been getting the least amount of playing time of the bunch - hopefully that changes.
I think that is pretty much going to be the lineup, I have a feeling Perreault is on the verge of being traded...I love the way the team is shaping up right now, Sundstromis really showing why he waspartof the best checking line 2 or 3 years ago...
You'd have to be crazy to keep Dackell with Saku Koivu. Sundstrom? Sure, he should be a top six forward anyways, and playing with gritty players (Begin, Thornton, Ricci) really elevates his game.
Perreault on the first line? Afraid of the playoffs are you? I agree, the team played well with those lines today, but this is a case where you fix it even those it's not completely broken.
Healthy Lineup? No such thing with the Habs . I see the lines as being built around usually one or two players, the exception being the fourth line. I bolded the players who I think need to play together whatsoever. The other plays are more or less interchangeable. Gotta love Quintal sticking up for his mates, but it's time for him to go. I can live with Bouillon as a number seven. The defence will see their ice time differentiate based on who's seeing minutes on the special teams.
With Kilger waived, I guess he technically shouldn't be listed on the roster, but I'll include Bulldogs who I think should be on the team.
