Since we dont need the 1st line to score goals, I'd be happy with Kreider throwing his fists at Clutterbuck, repeatedly

If trading Cally means I don't have to see that stupid line again, I'll drive him to airport myself.
People are saying we cant break up 3rd line cause they have chemistry.. Well Zuccarello has inserted chemistry to every frikking line he has played with.. I pray they switch it up a bit.

I disliked Torts' constant line juggles, but this is getting silly.

The fourth line is having a great game. I don't know who pissed Boyle off but I want to see him wrecking people more.

Its not even that. Richard's doesn't play Cally's game. When Cally gets the puck along the boards he just tosses it down low. Cally's entire offensive zone game(as well as Hags)is to tire opposing D-men with non stop board cycling. He has ZERO creativity.

Richards needs people who can get him the puck in open spaces so he can move it around the zone. Cally/Hags do not have the vision to do that. Unless they get incredibly lucky with their patient blind backhand passes into the slot.

BTW, Kreider has been totally invisible. I guess the ice hurts his game.

Plays better when he's more physical

Teams seem to be taking less penalties vs NYR now that we have a respectable power play.

He hasn't gotten one good pass the whole game.

He's not the type to skate the puck through the zone by himself ala Nash.

That being said, that line really needs to step it up.

I don't think he's been totally invisible - he's definitely had a couple of good shifts. (That said, I do think that the ice has hurt his game somewhat.)

Richards' line has been the invisible one.

Technically tied for team lead, Zucc got an assist on Pouliot's goal.

First and second line are at least getting chances. That third line is just dragging down any sort of momentum generated by the other three lines.

If you wanna get technical, Zucc is ahead on goals scored (now THAT tiebreaker would have surprised a lot of fans prior to the season)

Too bad. Weather you cannot do anything about but these professional ice makers should be able to make a good product. It's a shame if the game is decided by a bad bounce caused by poor ice. Unless it's Rangers getting the lucky bounce LOL

They have to get the puck moving down low. Nab is way out of his net. Just takes one good pass and its an empty netter.

Richards line is the third line as far as I can tell. Its been that way for a while.

I don't believe you can break up that Zucc-brassard-pouliot. Your maximizing Pouliot and your getting chemistry between Zucc and Brassard. Not to mention, its making it difficult for coaches to get match ups because you have to address Richards and Nash.

Regardless of numbers (was just using the number that is used in official lineup) at least we agree that the Rich line is God awful

I don't think he likes the conditions, he looks frozen. The Isles drinking coffee on the bench, good idea.
