For those who have and continue to suffer from concussions: my deepest sympathies. Luckily, brain imaging technologies have followed Moore's law which means that they have and will continue to improve exponentially. This implies that our understanding and diagnosis capabilities will only improve and maybe, just maybe, future brain implants will be able to help restore/mitigate the damage that's been done (like what's being researched for Parkinson's patients).

I have a feeling we're going to see Briere-DD-Gallagher line and they're going to get a load of ice time. Oh boy, Philly are going to have fun with that line in the corners.

I don't mind patches sitting out. It gives him over a week to rest up from the leafs game to the start of the Canadian road trip. I'd rather not have players play through injuries at game 1 of the marathon. Their bodies will go through enough as it is.

I momentarily forgot where I was but I always remembered my identity. I also remembered my wife when she approached after being treated for her injuries. We were both lucky to be alive after our chauffeur blacked out, crossed the center stripe, and crashed into a truck loaded with vegetables. We were sitting in the back seat of in a 1956 Renault Dauphine, reputed to be the worst example of French engineering since the Maginot line. The truck driver was alert enough to turn slightly at the last possible moment so that we hit his front left wheel instead of meeting head on.

Apparently Pacioretty is practicing with a non-contact jersey according to Gaston Therrien

When Pacioretty is back to 100% health, Desharnais and Briere will be back to getting top line minutes alongside him. Book it.

Well it makes sense to get the top scorer on the team going, especially if helps them. If they don't produce I'm sure ice time and lines will be adjusted. Hopefully it wasn't a one game thing.

Simply because Therrien won't want to make changes to EGG or Bourque-Plek-Gio, and he needs to give our top winger minutes, even if his line mates render him useless.

The best thing to do right now is to use that line as the third line playing against weaker opposition.

Plekanec and Eller can play against opponent to 2 lines... I'd try a Pacioretty Plekanec Brière powerplay.

Desharnais needs to be put in position where he NEEDS to impress. That's when he's useful to a team and he really never was good on the PP so I'd remove him from there permanently...

I believe in DD and that he coukd regain some kind of form but he needs to be demoted to do that.

I like to think Pacioretty would be a hell of a lot better without DD/Briere.

Plekanec should be paired with Pacioretty. They would compliment each other so well.

Just because Gio missed practice for family reasons. He will rejoin the team and that line.

If eller's line continues to out perform dd's line, it will get very interesting. Pacioretty could be void of his usual minutes, unless the lines are shaken up. As happy as I am for the Egg line, I'm equally frustrated by the players that don't quite seem to fit into the puzzle. Right now, the odd pieces are briere and desharnais, and they aren't even versatile enough to fit into a 3rd line role. I know it's early, and I still have hope for briere, but any faith I had left in dd is pretty much gone.

Their one dimensional nature makes it difficult for the coach to effectively switch up the lines, and that could cost pacioretty more than anyone else.

I totally agree with this, make Briere earn his ice time as a Hab,
The top 6 you have mentioned are indeed our top 6 until proven otherwise.

Why would people want to remove Bourque from Pleks after they finally played their best game preseason included?

Try this....keep Pac with Brière and DD....but put Brière at C. I know not ideal, but we have what we have, yet, change it a little.

Guys, we've played 2 games - the Pac-DD-Briere line has essentially been together for 2/3 of a game so far. They will get at least a fair shake before being broken up. I agree that Briere and DD have not looked good, but lets at least give them a few games together to see if they can find something.
