Happy though. kid line kid line kid line. except granny isn't all that good defensively and yeo doesn't trust zucker as far as he can throw rupp.
Yeo needs to get over his inherent mis-trust of all rookies and put the best team on the ice. His snap decisions to sit rookies or demote them in favor of under performing veterans who haven't done squat makes me not trust Yeo.

If the rookies are going to be put together i would sure prefer Pominville be with them but i will take it either way. I just hope Pominville doesn't disappear into the Brodziak abyss.

Anyone else wondering what a Zucker-Granlund-Coyle line would be capable of?

i don't think this is punishment for Pommer so much as it is an attempt to spread out the dangerous players. Coyle is still new--and despite what people say he looks it every other shift. He's not going to give many people anything to worry about running around on a third line but theoretically Pommer can go. Zucker with his speed has proven he can at least threaten to score a couple times a game without much help so I think throwing him in with a speed, physical guy like Seto and a controller type with Granlund might pay off, though Granny is new like Coyle so not sure how well he's going to handle being the brains on that line.

If this is what we go with I'll be happy with that. The only change I would make is maybe swap Seto and Pommer. Seto has been invisible without Cullen. Also, I wouldn't mind seeing PMB scratched, he doesn't really bring anything valuable. Especially on the 3rd line.

Honestly if we're going to do something like this i think we should just put Clutterbuck in the press box and roll with the usual 4th if at all possible. Our 4th line is the only line that has stayed intact over the last few weeks and despite its lack of scoring, it has the ability to entrench itself into the opponents zone and make mischief, which is something the other three lines have been lacking. Clutterbuck honestly adds nothing to that line and in fact probably subtracts because of his style of play (mainly playing the hit as opposed to the puck).

And now with the possiblity of Cullen coming back in a few games, I think we should consider benching Brodz as well and rolling with something like this:

Parise-Koivu-Coyle
Zucker-Granlund-Seto
Butch-Cullen-Pommer
Usual 4th.

Thats potentially 3 scoring lines and a puck control line.

If Cullen comes back, he has got to center Zucker and Seto, and send Granlund back to Houston.

It was on fire with CULLEN, not Granny.

Ummm ok, but the line in question was ZUCKER-CULLEN-SETO ..... so no PMB to begin with.

And Granny needs more time in AHL

Uhmm ok, you do realize that PMB is on the 3rd line so yes there is still PMB to begin with. Obviously Cullen is going back to the 2nd line there Cpt Obvious but that doesn't mean that Granlund has to be sent back to Houston.

You started the confusion by quoting my 2nd line post, but apparently you were talking about the 3rd line....

And Granlund should go back down because he is not valuable yet in the NHL, he has more importance to the Wild in the AHL.

I was hoping the team would do something to breathe some life into this ugly dead lifeless bloated carcass. I see a busy off-season. An agenda that should include riding the team of some dead weight. Brodziak, Heatley, Bouchard and maybe even Clutterbuck.

Don't forget Harding, he is in this mix of being bought out possibly also.

It is amazing to see a rookie be called upon as savior.

Brodin, Coyle, Granlund, Zucker: that's a lot of rookies.

It says a lot when they are some of your better players as well.

Flahr forever!!!

I know that ffs.

What I mean is what if the 2nd line, with Granlund as its center, catches fire between now and when Cullen comes back?
