I don't mind that at all really.... interested to see what Bitz can do with one of the best playmakers in the world. If it works could open up the potential for a:

Sedin - Bitz
Booth - Kes - Burr
Raymond - Hodgson - Hansen

Set-up...

Game day skate lines don't always translate into game-time lines.

I could easily see him going back to normal lines by the second period. He's just trying to get their attention and shake things up a bit.

As I just posted in our (Preds) GDT, here are the lines the Preds have been using the last 10-15 days:

Nothing official, of course... This lineup depends on if Fisher has recovered from his illness over the weekend (which my guess would be 99% yes):

Erat - Fisher - Kostitsyn
Wilson - Legwand - Hornqvist
Tootoo - Spaling - Yip/(Bourque)
Halischuk - Smith - Smithson/(McGrattan)

Weber - Suter
Klein - Josi
Ellis - Boullion

Rinne


Good luck guys. Always a thrilling game when these two meet. The NHL's #1 and #2 PPs both face each other. Should be fun.

With PPs like that watch the refs pull a Oilers/Leafs and call no penalties.

Don't worry, we haven't been getting many PP's lately and when we do, our PP hasn't been very good.

Well this should be interesting to say the least. I'm calling Cody with a multi point night. With Booth and Hansen on his wings he should have a lot of space to work out there. I see this game going to OT where AV will finally let the Sedins play together. They will come out on fire and end it one minute in.

Over the last month our PP% has fallen something like 2.5 %point. And if we had gotten more PPs it would only have been lower. Just shows how great it was before, when we can go a month with an abysmal PP and still have the 'best' in the league.

Where did you see them make a comment on it? I missed it. I would think they are more annoyed that they aren't producing than being separated.

In my head I read that in Mark Hamill's Joker voice.

If it gives our guys some jump, power to them. It certainly seemed to spark the team in the 3rd of the last two games, so why not try it off the hop?

I'm all for a good line juggle at this point. But Bitz with Henrik is a little annoying.

I like mixing things up, but these lines look questionable at best. Would've liked to see Lapierre with Burrows again, and maybe try either Hodgson or Kesler on the wing with the Sedins.

Sedins-Kesler
Booth-Hodgson-Hansen
Raymond-Lapierre-Burrows
Wiese-Malhotra-Bitz

Ehh who knows. Whatever wakes them up.

It seems the unthinkable has occurred...



And...




How else to explain a Tony Gallagher column complimenting Alain Vigneault - Gallagher: Kudos to Vigneault for giving Sedins the day off
As a scribbler who often throws brickbats in the direction of Alain Vigneault, you have to give credit where it’s due. Or at least when the effort is there.

In dealing with this non-slump – that really is a pretty significant slump, if you worry about “the process,” which Vigneault always claims to be doing — giving the Sedins an extra day off on Monday seemed to be absolutely the right thing to do. That way, in terms of the possible causes of their current drought, Vigneault is doing the most he can to eliminate one of the most likely causes: fatigue.

By the way, against the stingy Predators, one point from each of the Sedins would constitute success in a game that isn’t expected to produce much in the way of offence.
I hope the game goes like this and not that 6-5 game earlier in the year. I don't thing we could put 6 on the Nucks again.

If this whole coaching thing doesn't work out AV can always turn to doing stand up.

Bada boom.

Elliotte Friedman on Nashville and the Suter contract situation - Predators not in a bind with Suter.

He disagrees with Glenn Healey who says this is a bad thing, Friedman contends this is an opportunity and that the stars are aligning in Nashville who looked poised to overtake the Red Wings.

Honestly, I'm looking forward to seeing what this will do to Henrik.

I still remember how assertive he was back when Daniel was sidelined. Instead of relying on his brother to get to those scoring areas, he'd go there himself. He simplified his game because he couldn't rely on his teammates to take those area passes he makes almost automatically with his brother. He didn't try passing through guys like he can with his brother.

It just seems like that (annual) time of the year to get the Sedins out of their comfort zone and refocus. For now, I'm all for it.
