Krog centering Shanny and Cullen

Quote:
The tentative lines for tomorrow, or at least based on what was practicing together today:

Straka-Nylander-Jagr
Cullen-Krog-Shanahan
Hossa-Betts-Ortmeyer
Prucha-Hollweg-Ward
Quote:
As for Jason Krog moving between Matt Cullen and Brendan Shanahan, maybe thatís not the answer to getting Shanahan out of his scoring slump. But Krog certainly has more playmaking ability than Betts, who readily admitted his shortcomings in that department the other night.

Yeah, I'm getting a bit sick of Prucha on the 4th line.

It's just stupid. He's not oging to do anything there, it's not going to get him out of any slump. Renney shows no patience with Prucha...

whatever.. i am tired of stressing out over the changes, especially since we are a 1-line team.. our lines are 1, 3a, 3b, 4..

i'd put Prucha-Krog-Shanahan, together and slide Cullen down with Hossa and Orts, then do HBW..

better than nothing..


edit: nice, bleedblue94..

If you're going to try everything, how do you not try everyone in position?

The idiocy of Renney continues..

Of course, everything stems from the 2nd line and the moronic signing of Cullen (even if he is still ourt best option in the NHL), but when Life give you Lemons yadda yadda.....Who knows what the Hell the Rangers are making...

I have no clue what Renney is doing with Prucha wasted on a 4th line again (There may be a case for limiting Prucha's ice time BUT NOT WHEN THE ALTERNATIVES ARE THE LIKES OF KROG,CULLEN,HOSSA, etc..)....And Hollweg out of postion as a C? ....and a 2nd line, often the most important line, constructed of Shanny and two wimpy, prancing non-entities like Krog and Cullen.....Krog scores one goal and his spot will be cemented...

It's really quite simple..Given what we have...

Straka-Nylander-Jagr
Prucha-Cullen-Shanny (you can switch Prucha and Nylnder maybe)
Hollweg-Betts-Orts
Hossa-Krog-Ward...

The rest of the line shiffling will amount to nothing...Renney is just being too smart for his own good..

Couldn't agree more about Prucha being wasted on the fourth line. How's a guy supposed to snap out of a slump when he's playing with Hollweg and Ward, who have little to no offensive abilities whatsoever? He's so much more than an energy guy, he deserves better.

Agreed. For a coach that has been loyal to several players such as Malik no matter how awful they've played at times this season it really makes me wonder what it is about Prucha that has made Renney shove him on the back burner.

Makes you wonder if he's just become one more coach that's lost the balls to do anything but ride his veteran players no matter how incapable some may be..

I'm holding out hope that playing first Betts and now Krog on the second line is a cry for help from Renney. If not, then it's just weird.

You would think by now they would learn that they need more then a 3rd line checking center to play 2nd line. Holik, Rucchin, Cullen...I mean they were all capable players but none have been used in their correct role. This off season better bring us an actual offensive 2nd line center ala Drury or someone similar..

Maybe Renney is thinking that since Prucha being paired with guys with no offensive skill, maybe he wants to see Prucha control the line by himself I wonder if our other coaches would have done this as well.

If that means he's lost his f'ing mind, then yes. Yes he has.

I thought Renney did a good job last year. This year, I have no idea what his plan is, and I don't think he does either.

At some point everyone is just going to have to come to grips with that shuffling around bad players does not magically turn them into good players.

I hate Prucha on the 4th line, what a waste of talent. Thank god he is not a UFA right now, otherwise if i was him, i would book the first plane out of here.

I hate the lines as much as you guys do, but lets face it, 2 shifts into the games, Renney will change the line up as always.

I personally think the PP needs to be split up. Jags/Shan and Straka/Nyl shoudl all be on different pp lines.. cause our no. 2 unit is horrible.

PP units :
Jags/Nylander/Prucha
Hossa/Straka/Shanny

and put cullen on one of the points and call it a day.

I sure hope Krog proves that Renney's estimation of his talent is correct.

I'm getting a Toms-Low feeling, though.

We'll see.

Well I don't think any of them are BAD players, but guys like Betts, Krog, Orts and Hossa are being asked to do things they just can't.

Prucha on the 4th line is a crime, Renny has got to go for this decision alone.
