Can we play Desharnais line 50 minutes a game ?

Currently a wash at best but down the road Bluden should be way better and more useful. As for Leblanc I figured he would be back up sooner rather then later.

We got pushed around by kaleta and gaustad yesterday 2 whimps. That line for Buffalo beat last night cause they able to do whatever they wanted and no one said a word on the habs. We need some toughness in our line up

On a side note, I don't know what to do with Plekanec. In the past 20 games or so, all he has been doing is dumping the puck on every single shift or so. Whats the problem?

I guess that would be my lines :

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole (play 20 minutes)
Bourque - Eller - Kostitsyn (play 16 minutes)
Gomez - Plekanec - Leblanc (play 12 minutes)
Darche - White - Blunden (play 8 minutes)
Over 12 mill 2 players on the third line and play 12 mins , smart managment.
Plex is a good 2 way center, but if they can get a front line center with size i would be all for trading him and Ellar.

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque - ???? - Kostitsyn
Leblanc- ??? - ??? Maybe Galliger nx season
White- Blunden- ???

I would say Gionta, but for 5.5 mill you could do better then him for the third line.
The three players for the bottom 2 lines should be gretty with speed. A 13th forward that loves to drop the gloves

pretty much. The Darche of last year and the Darche of this year is like night and day. He's been pretty terrible outside of the penalty kill.

I like Carbo's "team full of Kostopoulos'" more.

Man I miss that guy.

"pushed around" Not sure waht game you watched but those 2 didn't push anybody around. They hurled taunts and insults at the bench, hopefully both get the crap beaten out of them though.

Honestly, I think Darche is better than Blunden offensively and defensively but Blunden is far more physical and has 'size and youth'. I like Darche in his current role, he's been effective. I didn't like him when he was on the first line.

Darche has heart and all but.... come on. Even as a 4th liner, he ain't no Steve Begin.

I've have never been a Darche hater. Didn't mind the guy at all. Hard worker.

But, the fact that I thought he has been injured or benched a lot this season (come to find out he has played 50 games) probably is not a good sign. I have watched at least 3/4 of the games this year and I think I maybe have one recollection of him.

It was a cool story, him making it and all, but he's done. Short and sweet. Bye bye Darche!

I wouldn't consider myself a hater. I loved him last year, but I think everyone knew he was playing above his head, much like moen this year with his 9 or so goals. I was glad to see him get his payday, but I was never for him having a guaranteed spot in the line up. He doesn't bring any particular skill to the table that we couldn't find in a younger, more promising player on the free agent market. We have a marked lack of toughness in the bottom 6, replacing Darche with a guy like Prust would do us some good.
