It feels good to have a 3rd line that can score, that we can also rely on. No need to change linemates.

You can compare Lars Eller to Logan Couture?

To all the people i see who i know diss'ed Eller, i'm like HOW YOU LIKE DEM APPLEZ SON?

Last year on hockeybuzz' forums i had predicted the best way for Galchenyuk to come into the league was to be put on Eller's wing and have them both succeed off of each other. I was laughed out of the forum.

DEM APPLEZ SON!

Doesn't seem to me that DD and Briere can score right now...

Seriously, with the way the EGG line played and if Plek's line can play like last night (which they should be able to, they're all vets that have a history of decent to good production), DD's line is our 3rd. It even showed in ice time yesterday.

The problem being that if they don't score, it's a line that is attrocious at everything else.

I know lots of people want to see Galchenyuk centre his own line because he was drafted as a centre but the EGG line is just too good to be split up right now. Hockey is all about momentum and right now these guys have the hot hand and MT needs to ride that. Once the line 'cools' down a bit, which it will, that's when you switch patches in with Eller and give Galchenyuk his own line.

Try that for a few games and see how Galchenyuk can acclimate.

Time to take eller off that line and put DD on it.. makes perfect MT logical sense.

To be serious-- when people take a beating like Eller did on that hit you have many choices and the choice Lars took..work out, get bigger truly has paid dividends. The kid is a freaking stud. Halak who???

Why do you want to punish Gallagher and Galchenyuk?

Makes MT logical sense. That is actually a change and everyone on these boards know that MT has overused DD and it is a nice change. He is/has started to become a non-factor finally.

Finally, about time...MT

Maybe MT is reading HF boards...

Great to see Eller continuing to develop, alot of the Blues fans would love to have this guy back...

Finally, a centre with size, Bobby Smith was the last one...

It wouldnt surprise me if a lot of NHL coaches/team personal spent quite a lot of time lurking around the internet and its hockey-centric websites. Hell, they probably have a guy who's job is to do this.

I think quite the opposite. They don't have a lot of time on their hands and browsing forums is probably the last thing on their mind because there are a lot of other activities they could be doing,

Maybe not their management but I'm sure every NHL's team public relation squad spend a large amount of time on Internet to study what's up with their fans.

Obviously less skill, but it's more the size, and the way that he moves sometimes.

Perhaps, although the amount of useful information is not very much and tedious to accumulate.

OK, I'm not eating crow yet, but let's say I'm looking for good crow recepies right now.

I had some doubts about him coming back from a serious injury. But damn he looks good so far!
