I'd like to see them get the same amount as the second line. What happens to Michalek? Does Latendresse get re-signed? Condra?

Michalek - Spezza - xxxxxx
Conacher - Turris - Alfredsson?
Silferverberg - Zibanejad - xxxxxx
Greening - Smith - Neil

Why are people putting Silfver and Zibby on the third line?

They play well together and Zibanejad is a centre. Its not like the 2nd-3rd lines are any different anyways they are interchangeable.

Zibanejad is better as a centre and Spezza + Turris are ahead of him. Silfverberg plays better with Zibanejad, so he plays with Zibanejad.

Call Turris's line the 3rd line if it makes you feel better.

To protect them. They are not ready to go toe to toe versus the top lines on other clubs yet. Putting them on the third line sets them up against weaker D and gives them a greater chance to succeed and build up confidence.

The only reason why Zibanejad and Silfv playing on the third line is because they have chemistry together and the depth make it look like they are in the third line.

I'm willing to bet that they become our 1B line next year. They will still all get top minutes to perform.

Havlat played on the 3rd line as a Senator and he put up plenty of points in that capacity.

It's not about "where" they are on the depth chart as much as it's about creating matchup problems for other teams. Keeping that 3rd line together for an entire season could potentially be a matchup nightmare.

Yeah, I could see us basically having a Line 1, Line 2A, Line 2B set. Not to mention spreading out the offense can be good

The beauty of having depth in scoring is that you can roll 3 lines almost equally and it's nearly impossible to match-up well against it.

Michalek & Spezza
Turris & Alfie
Zibanejad & Silfverberg

That right there has a ton of potential for 3 scoring lines that will make it very tough to stop this team from scoring next year, especially if you consider that next year you'll have Karlsson, Gonchar (maybe) and Wiercioch supporting from the blueline.

Condra needs to be in any lineup, even if he plays on his off wing.

I've been thinking, I love Michalek but with his past injury history and the way we've been playing, I would definitely package him with another asset for a younger or same player capability.

Michalek for Glencross

Okay.

After reading all your responses I do see your point.

I just don't want them to become a "real" third line, getting 11-12 minutes per game and no PP-time. That would ruin them both.

I dont hate losing regin, i just wish we could have gotten something in return. Seems like bad asset management

Does anyone feel so comfortable in the kid line that Turris can move over to Spezza's wing?

Michalek -Spezza -Turris
Conacher/Alfredsson -Zibanejad -Silfverberg

I wouldn't mind seeing Murray add a top 6 powerforward & top 4 defenceman under 30 yrs old this summer if teams need to dump salary & they become available & they would come to Ottawa. Otherwise, we have a full compliment of NHL players for next season & can continue to build through the draft & make trades for key players that fill our needs works pretty well too. We have the players in the system to fill our needs at some point, it's just when they will be at the level we need them to be. Getting a couple of UFAs that are already at the level we need would give our young guys more time to develop.

Nah,

I would rather

Greening - Spezza - Michalek
Lats - Turris - Alfy
Conacher - Zib - Silf


Greening and Lats being interchangeable with each other.
