PGG Line

I really hope Therrien gives this line a chance for a couple games.This is our future first line in my opinion. I'd really like to see what Chucky can do centering for those guys and if they can get any chemistry going.

Thanks

I just listened to his presser from last night and he hinted as much. DD's play is forcing MT to bring Galchenyuk over to center quicker than they wanted. Alex is still young enough to play on the World Junior Team! How crazy is that?!

I love it. Our 2 best goal scoring wingers, with our best offensive center.

Does the PGG line make Eller 3rd line C?

Well, unless you consider Eller to be a better player than Tomas Plekanec, yes.

Probably, but he'll at least have Bourque with him so he'll do okay.

Not a good idea. Start galchenyuk off with 13-15 minutes a game at the center position, he needs to learn the defensive game before being put out there as a #1 C.

Yea. But a great 3rd line C that plays 14-16 minutes a game, kills penalties, forechecks hard, the prototypical 3rd line center.

...well, that means that, if the lines remains as they were at the end of the game yesterday, MP won't be used a lot.

Pacioretty-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Bournival-Plekanec-Gionta
Bourque-Eller-Desharnais
Holland-White-Leblanc <-- I don't know what to do about the 4th line. Don't want to see Leblanc sit.

Any line with Desharnais on it is rendered useless, along with the 2 other players on the line. Let him sit in the pressbox, and put Leblanc on that line.

I'd love that, can you see it happening though? I'm thinking no.

Overload, come on... Sorry, just wanted to say Overload again. Still though, the PGG would be more of an exploitation line, while the Plekanec line would take the harder matchups. Eller's line would be more of a 2nd line than anything. That's not what I'd like to see though.

When healthy:

Patches - Galchenyuk - Bourque/Briere
Bournival - Plekanec - Gionta
Prust/Bourque - Eller - Gallagher

Depends on your take on this team. If you think they are a legit playoff team, you may go with the status quo.

However, this team could very well be a bubble team or worse, thus the experience for the future would be huge

Very we'll said, Pleks is most certainly a better player than Eller though I think Eller has more raw talent on offence than Pleks. But I think what you'll see is Eller and Plekanec's get pretty much the same amount of ice time, with slight differences depending on who's line is producing more and the PP and PK

I just can't wait to see Prust back, he can help Plek, Eller or Galchenyuk on their respective line.

I want to see some semi-permanent duos:

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - RW
LW - Eller - Gallagher
Bournival - Plekanec - RW

Just need to plug and play with the remaining group.

Leblanc RW
Gionta RW
Bourque LW/RW
Prust LW/RW
Briere RW/C

More importantly he can help White, who's been carrying AHLers for over a week now

Yep, I could get on board. I'm not saying I think Leblanc is a top line forward but, I think Leblanc's ability along the boards and his defensive prowess would really compliment Pacioretty and Galchenyuk.

1RW Leblanc
2LW Bourque
3RW Gionta

I hate the lines past the first line.

Galchenyuk is without a doubt more comfortable at center. The more he controls the puck the better he is.

That said, he's still learning the defensive side of his game. As responsible he might be, we've seen him struggle at times in his zone. Putting him right away against top line opposition is asking for him to get exposed, considering the responsibilities a center has.

something like this

Pac-Eller-Gally
Bournival-Plekanec-Gionta
Bourque-Chucky-Prust(Leblanc for now)

I think Eller does better when he's with younger guys than vets. So...

Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Bournival - Eller- Leblanc
Bourque - Plekanec - Prust/Gionta

Plekanec will still do most of the heavy lifting.

I think they'll be more of a 2nd line.

Really tired of people saying he is not ready defensively to play center. Offensive development is more important for me right now. We need an offensive center star. Defense will come with time.
