True; that would make a great power-play line though.

I'd keep Mac and Kadri together. They seem to be doing all right, which is more than what could be said about Frattin since his return.

Leafs are getting a huge upgrade tonight. So glad Lupul is back.

I want Lupul back with Kessel right away. Great chemistry together. I can see JVR having great success with Kadri.

yes

Kadri needs a pure finisher on his side that can put away his chances, Frattin and JVR fit the bill, they can also cycle the puck.

Kessel - Lupul combo is another good line we will get scoring out of... that's 2 solid scoring lines.

Then we have the Grabovski line. For all the crap Kessel takes this year it should be grabovski... he literally is providing this team with nothing. He isn't shutting down the other lines at all and he's not scoring either. Kessel may be a +2 one game and a -2 the next, but at least he's out there scoring... Grabovski always just seems to be floating around when his line gets scored on... just 11 points and a -7. Mac and Kuelmin play better when they're away from him... truly a horrible signing so far

Lets start the "Lupul At Center" train.

JVR - Lupul - Kessel
Mac - Kadri - Frattin
Grabo - Bozak - Kulemin
Komorov - McClement - Orr/Mclaren.


Lets go.

Not sure if I thought this should be taken seriously but when I look at it more carefully it seems quite an interesting proposition. My biggest question would be what Lupul might be like at center. However, nonetheless food for thought.

Kulemin needs to start being utilizing in a purely bottom-six defensive role because his offence has dissipated.

lupul bozak kessel
mac grab kule
jvr kadri frattin
komarov mcclement mclaren

for me...that third line is young and can be together for long time, skillsets match up well with size/speed/scoring/play making, i give them a chance to click now

You think Lupul is already in game shape? I hope we're not all in for a big disappointment when he doesn't contribute a lot.

I feel so bad for Kessel sometimes. He's stuck with Bozak come hell or high water, and yet Lupul gets to play with Kadri his first game back.

Give him a shot with two of our best offensive players. If he can't score with these two it's probably time, though.

It's a pretty damn good point.

What about something like this for spreading things out.

JVR Bozak Lupul
Kulemin Kadri Kessel
MacA Grabbo Fratts
Komorov McClement McLaren

Three capable scoring lines. With Leo and Jay they could use the 4th line as a checking. Kulemin adds some D to the KKK line.

I know that RC doesn't roll his lines like this but....

Kessel was a bad boy in his previous life.
