My feeling looking at those lines is that as per usual the richards line needs to pull its weight. He should not be at center right now he was actually doing well at W. Get him the ******* off of center. I don't care if you have Boyle centering Nash's line just get Brad the ******* outta there. (ok i do care but I'm angrily exaggerating). Nash I'm not worried about and think he'll start to recover from his injury and do well soon. I think Hagelin and Nash should be on a line together call it 1, 2 ,5 whatever I just think those two should be on a line and am glad they are.
Does any1 else look at Pouliot and see nothing but a black hole? We should prob trade for a guy who can fill in and actually have some sort of tangible impact on the ice at LW there
For the hell of it I predict a 3 point night for him..
Nash has shown up, stats don't tell the story. He single-handedly drew the Rangers three penalties last game, including BOTH that led to the long 5 on 3. The Lightning had no answer for him, he just wasn't getting good support.
At some point, I think AV is going to have to - to quote Torts *vomits* - rob Peter to pay Paul and put Nash with Stepan. Hopefully Nash can generate some chemistry with another line so we dont' have to break up Kreider - Stepan - Zuccarello.
Not sure if I'll be able to watch this one tonight Too many of my friends home for the holiday looking to be active. Yawn.
I'll be in 131 tonight, hoping for Henke as he's ALWAYS has a good game in Sunrise, no matter who's won.
Will support Cam if I see him for the first time live, either morethanacceptable goaltender we have, I expect a goalie show on both ends regardless.
Can shuffle the wingers up or down... but gets Richards back where he was performing.
Ideally I would, but the way Brassard is playing, there's no way you can have him centering the first line. Maybe - just maybe - you can try him with Zuccarello and Kreider, since he has decent chemistry with both guys, and then do Richards-Stepan-Nash, but I dunno. I'm no fan of rewarding guys who keep playing badly with more ice time.
