I would rather play the best lineup we have. Did you think when Liles was scratched for 10-13 games, Carlyle knew what he was doing? He arrogantly continued to put Holzer, Fraser, and Kostka in the lineup all the same time, and didn't figure out until later that their mobilty and lack of first pass was hurting the team. Liles made the mistake the game before and got sat, but the 3 amigo's (holzer, kostka specifically) continued making mistakes but kept getting chances. We still get hemmed in our zone but not as much. My largest criticism is that once you're in the dog house, you're there for a long time till we lose, a change is needed (long losing streak).
..And there was another poster who complained that Frattin is a winger and Hamilton was the 4C so there's no direct relation. If you didn't read, I said Komorov should of been on the 4th line (frattin takes his place on the 3rd). WE're not going to put two enforcers in the lineup in the playoffs anyhow.
with them in line the line was not that bad, we are in a playoff position.
we were missing lupul and riemer for awhile, so the defence did not hold us back from being in the position we are in.
