Its an absolute disaster of a line. At best they get a weak scoring chance and then spend the rest of their shift in their own end. Cally and Richards have ZERO chemistry with one another. Hags speed is worthless cause Richards isn't that fast. Brian Boyle's line is more of an offensive threat in this game. BRIAN BOYLE!!! That is a disgrace!
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.
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.
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
I think we spoke past each other. with 3rd line I was referring to Brass line
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.
