This is what I would roll for lines:

McGinn-Duchene-PAP
Landeskog-Stastny-Hejduk/Pajamas
McLeod-ROR-Jones
Kobasew-Mitchell-Bordy

It gives ROR a bit more talent to work with (Jones), and keeps Stastny and Landeskog together, which has worked fairly well. If we still continue to struggle and ROR keeps looking better, swap ROR and Stastny.

Another option would be to call Sgarbossa back up to play LW for either Stastny or ROR. He would add some skill and a good shot to either line. A Sgarbossa-ROR-Landeskog (playing on his off side) line would probably look a lot like the Landeskog-ROR-Downie line.

I think Jones is better with Stastny. I also thought Plushy had a decent game playing on O'Reilly's line.

Agree. Stastny was one of our best players last night. No reason fro him to get demoted when he is playing well. ROR needs to play lower minutes anyways, and get back to game speed.

I thought Pajamas looked good last night. Lots of energy. Hope he stays in for today.

I'm pretty sure that I've already won that challenge.

So when I get home from Hockey Practice tonight I'm gonna pick out a nice new Avy for you

Does anybody have an idea on which D-man gets scratched tonight?

If I had to guess, I would say Sacco will swap Zanon and Elliott.

I don't know if anybody could predict that unless they had access to Sacco's Tarot Reader.

I personally think that EJ should still be in, and sit ROB or Hunwick.

I'd at least TRY the following lines

Elliott-EJ
Hejda-Barrie
SOB-ROB/Hunwick (probably Hunwick on that line lol).

But I know I'm in the minority here. I just keep thinking that Elliott would be a nice partner with EJ, at least on the PP, to maybe help BOTH players out w/ the offensive side of things

I thought he was going to be back tonight too. But the last I heard no one was really sure if he would be back tonight or Friday.

If he does return, I would love to see Zanon and ROB scratched.

Ehh, never mind. That's not even realistic, so why even bother?

If EJ is back, I'm fairly convinced he'll be paired with Hunnybadger.

I'm OK with those pairings. Make it so.

I like those pairings a lot. I know a lot of people are hating on Elliott for some of his turnovers. But if you think about it, whoever would start in his place would probably commit the same turnover anyways, so is it really anything new?

I would actually prefer Hunny Boo Boo over Hunwick at times... at least she has size and a low center of gravity. Hockey IQ might be about the same between them.

I didn't literally mean he was doing absolutely nothing, but game conditioning only comes from playing games.

I'm going to say this ONCE. If ANYONE posts a pic of "Honey Boo Boo" or anything related to that god-awful television show, I will Thread Ban them SO FAST...or I will have Bubba do it if I'm at work/if he's free.

Not joking around here!
