Dan is stubborn. He has an idea of what he wants the lineup to be. He had to move away from that when we were struggling because he knew the other combinations would more than likely work, but since we're winning now, he thinks the team is on a roll and he can experiment with what he truly wants.
I think this is evidenced by Iggy being moved back to LW. Dan figures since they had success as a line in the last game that now they'll be comfortable together and he can put Iggy where he actually wants him to play.
I'll take an average fighter, noone remembers the Isles beat down I guess, hopefully this doesn't end up like that Mon Vs Ott game either. Who knows what Neil might try tonight esp if the game gets out of hand either way or Orpik lays out Spezza
WHY are we still afraid of other teams? How much grit does Glass add that we absolutely need him? There are PLENTY of guys on this team willing to fight and defend their teammates, and hell, they might win one.
Last time Jussi was in Bylsma kept forgetting he existed and not playing him until halfway through the game. Does he not want to embarrass himself again by exposing that he can't manage a full lineup, so he puts in the guy he knows no one wants to see so he has an excuse to not play them?
