I agree that Sobotka centering Tarasenko is solid. What about Schwartz-Sobotka-Tarasenko? Not the most size in the world but all three play bigger. Schwartz & Sobotka as dogged puck hounds with Tarasenko finding room?

20-42-74
9-17-91
56-21-25
10-12-75

I really think a 9-17-91 would be such a dogged, high hockey IQ puck pursuit line that I don't know how it would fail. Maybe defensively? They're not the best defensive forwards relative to the rest of the team but they're more than adequate backchekers.

JR's note in the morning skate that Sobotka is winning 71.2% of draws (47 of 66) ... wow.

Mostly just want to see the young skilled offensive players getting more ice time. That's how were going to build this team up and be a contender late in the season.

I would also really like to see a 9-17-91 line. Schwartz and Tarasenko have looked deadly together and Sobotka might not have top end skills but the guy never gives up and brings a type of game to the line that might be missing (Schwartz has played like that too but I'd rather let Schwartz focus on playmaking)

That third line though...if they gave points for cycling for 30 seconds then not getting a shot off that would be an allstar line. Since they only give you points if you score a goal, that line might be of some concern

Well if you think that two lines would score and the third line would cycle with possession but not be dangerous, at least it's not in your own end. I could live with that.

I realize you can't win them all, but these back to back overtime loses have been pretty hard to take, there is no reason we should have lost the last 2. I couldn't believe Pietrangelo coughed up the puck on a PK with 31 seconds left, didn't see that one coming. Haven't been feelin' Halak's play lately either, last night he looked slow to react and was leaving the backdoor open all night. Hopefully they bounce back tonight in Nashville.

If we had somebody else who could play 4th line center, or when Lapierre comes back, I think a line of Berglund-Roy-Stewart could be interesting, then have something like Morrow/PRV-Lapierre-Reaves on the 4th line.

17 is no slouch defensively. And like you say, the other two are adequate.

Sobi's promotion is at least partially due to his FO wins. Berglund has earned a better spot than the 4th line, so Roy drops by default.

Leopold needs to get some points. And polak needs to stop making stupid mistakes. Looking for pie to have a much better performance today. He looked a little slow last night.

Hey, that line would be better defensively than PRV-Roy-Tarasenko, so I'd probably like to see it tried out. Overall height is overrated, although Berglund used his size multiple times last night to shield the puck, especially going around the net. That brought his game to a whole different level.

I'm completely on board with that — even though it means moving one of 12 or 21 to wing. Even though Hitch said that he's not necessarily trying to "get Stewart going", I think we all know that —at the very least— they were hoping the line shuffling would bring out Stewart's game. I get it. I just disagree with the philosophy of selecting Stewart as the piece to kindle the secondary scoring fire. He's too fickle of a producer.

It should be Tarasenko. Do anything and everything to get him space.

Roy may have earned his demotion. Seems like whoever is on his line is on the puck and feeding him as he floats around the slot. probably an exaggeration but I haven't seen him 'set up' anyone yet

I don't think Sobotka should ever leave the middle of the ice. Keep him at center, the guy is basically a guaranteed faceoff win. He's a very valuable player, especially in the middle of the ice, IMO.

Hopefully the Blues can bounce back tonight against Nashville's backup.

Will be looking for more consistent offense from the other lines. Should be interesting to see how Paajarvi-Sobotka-Tarasenko do. On paper that looks pretty exciting.
