Considering Carlyle has toyed with the idea of using JVR as our first-line centre in the past, I wouldn't be surprised to see him play opposite Kessel against the Islanders tonight. And I think this is what I would prefer.

Seems like a great idea to break up yesterday's best line.

Seems like a better idea than trying Frattin on LW.

Who said anything about putting Frattin on that line, Mac was doing an okay job - let him build some confidence and when he does flip him with JVR at the right time.

I'm guessing we're gonna see a Frattin-Kadri-Komarov 3rd line, and damn is it nice to see a young fast talented third line instead of the absolute crap group of stiffs we've had to deal with being our "shutdown 3rd line" the last 4-5 years.

Really??? Huh? I was wondering last night what exactly Gunnie brings to the team. But looking at those stats I should def watch him much closer!! He's one of those guys that just goes unnoticed and unheard. I will watch him much closer tonight!!!

About the whole lineup issue!

It would be beyond crazy to touch the JVR-Grabs-Kulie line as they were on fire last night. Also Frattin is going to need limited ice time which keeps him off the 1st line.

What about:

Komarov-Bozak-Kessel
Frattin-Kadri-Mac

Or

Kadri-Bozak-Kessel
Frattin-Komarov-Mac

Great game from Frattin.

Demote Macarthur to the third line and play him or JVR on the 1st or 2nd LW position.

Then demote Bozak and play Kadri.

Agree except for the demote bozak part... Demote grabovski to third line and promote kadri to second?

Demote Bozak? He has been one of the very best players for the Leafs this year, one of the best two way players and has improved his face off %. If that warrants a demotion then I really dont know what to say,

Cant be as nearly as suprised as I was to see your demote Bozak comment. Bozak is a very god hockey player, to each their own.

Why "demote" Bozak? He's been great. MacArthur simply has no chemistry with Kessel. Though I can see how hard it is for Carlyle to mix up the lines now because if we move Kadri to the top line, we're forced to demote Bozak but that makes no sense either. It's going to be a tough night of thinking for Randy.

MacArthur hasn't been "sucking". Production requires chemistry, stop ****ing on the guy after one game.

Frattin just took those vets to school on how to play hockey.

It's actually sad that Macarthur is our first line LW'er. I ain't even mad. Just sad for Randy. But I can help him out.

Put JVR on that line and then Frattin with Grabo.

Then we put Kadri with Kessel and JVR and then we have something different to offer the NHL. All Bozak has gotten us as number one is last place.

If something is broken you should be trying to fix it!

The only thing that makes losing bearable is seeing Frattin/Kadri/Gardner perform well.

40-50 points is PPG, let's not assume Kadri's THAT great yet. Temper the expectations my friend.

I think he meant that over an 82 game season.
