Having Desharnais watching from the press box is a definite win in my books, Eller has sat for much less. Maybe it'll wake him up.

I think that having Parros and White on the same line is risky. I'd play White against soft teams and Parros against strong teams.

Also, where's Leblanc? He's been playing decently.

What if Briere comes back and Desharnais has massive diarrhea?

Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Bournival - Plekanec - Gionta
Pacioretty - Briere - Bourque
Moen - Leblanc - Prust

Next game I would sit DD and make Leblanc center the 3rd line. There's absolutely no reason to give DD yet another chance to come out of his funk. With MaxPac coming back, having him sit out and see Leblanc take over a center spot would make him think a little more.
And I actually think Leblanc centering Bourque and MaxPac would be a great line.

A couple of games ago I would have liked to see Bournival there, but he's playing great on the wing with Plek's now so it's out of the question. But Leblanc has played well these last couple of games and would be worth a try. Can't be worse than Desharnais right now.

First of all Prust is injured. Second, you're taking out the best LW and putting him at center where he needs sheltered minutes.

Definitely a step backwards. As much as Desharnais has struggled offensively, he's been good on faceoffs and better defensively than Galchenyuk, especially at center.

Did you buy your tv screen at a local carnival? How is it that you have such a demented view of what's going on in our games? DD has been better than Galchenyuk and Markov has been better than Subban? Your TV must be like some kind of deranged fun house mirror.

...I might get punched for that, but if we're to try Galchenyuk at center against good competition...

There is only one player I want playing on his left wing.

The problem is : that player is our best center.

I didn't say DD was better tahn Glachenyuk. I said the Habs are a better team with Galchenyuk on LW and DD at center. Obviously it's time for DD to get going, get the gorialla off his back and put up some points.

I'm sure if you asked hockey people that watch the Habs day in and day out they'd tell you Mrakov has been the Habs best d-man and best player overall this year. Obviously not being flashy and flamboyant like Subban most fans would think he's nowhere near as good.

I think LeBlanc has a future with the Habs...but what the heck has he done in 3 games to merit being given Desharnais' spot?

You said he was better defensively... he's not. He loses every battle. And quite frankly we're better with DD out of the lineup altogether.

Anyone who would say this has an agenda. PK is much better. And you could clearly see this when they weren't paired together.

But you know... keep on keepin' on man.

Same production as DD but with more drive and intensity.

Right now, i would do this line-up:

Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta
Galchenyuk - Eller - Gallagher
Bourque - Bournival - Leblanc
Holland - White - Parros

Pacioretty should be an upgrade on Bournival (even though, the kids play really well)
Bournival is an upgrade on DD (And Bournival is a center with great defensive skills)
Holland is an upgrade from Blunden, IMO

I like Galchenyuk on the 3rd line. Like we saw last night, he wants the puck on his stick and will create scoring opportunities every time. Splitting up him and Eller gives us 3 centers that can carry the pace of the game.

I might be tempted to do prust-galch-gally and patches-eller-bourque, just because gally always knows where to go when Galchenyuk has the puck.

I wouldn't bother playing parros at all unless were facing Toronto / Philly. The man can't play hockey. I'd muchrather see Moen-White-Leblanc on that 4th line. Leblanc can tweak the defensive side of his game with those two and it's a line that may be able to chip in offensively.

I guess well see tonight if patches can wake up DD... because the way this is going, we are going to lose many games due to his inability to produce. And it looks like MB is finally losing his patience.

I'd like to see:
Pacioretty-Eller-Bourque
Bournival-Plekanec-Gionta
Prust-Galchenyuk-Gallagher
Parros-White-Moen

Prust had great chemistry with the Gallys.
Pleks line is currently untouchable.
I think having Eller with two other big players would be interesting. Bourque's always well positioned going after the puck a lot. I think it could generate a lot of scoring opportunities.

Maybe put Leblanc at Prust's spot. And then put Prust on the 4th.

I would go with

Pacioretty-Plekanec-Gionta
Bournival-Eller-Gallagher
Prust-Galchenyuk-Bourque
Moen-White-Holland/Leblanc/Parros/Plug#51 (depending the type of teams we're facing)

Is there some kind of rule saying that Gionta HAS to play with Plekanec? I'm wondering where this comes from. It's not like they have amazing offensive chemistry.

Well currently, they're playing well together. Besides I don't remember Gionta playing better paired with anyone else.

Wasn't he paired with Gomez before Plekanec?
