Guess the Forward Lines!!!!

Hey Guys,
I was playing NHL 2k6 last night and playing around with our forward lines. What are you guys thinking our lines will be?

Reading the paper this morning sounds like we' might e right about Erat playing with Legwand and Kariya. So line one looks like

Kariya-Legwand-Erat

Quote:
Trotz has put Martin Erat, Kris Beech, David Legwand and Yanic Perreault together in practice since they might be on Kariya’s line.
Hartnell has played too well to not be on the second line with Sullivan and it looks like Robitaille is serious about playing both ways, which is great as he has the most offensive skills of the three centers, so line two looks like

Hartnell-Robitaille-Sullivan

Moving Walker to the third line means we've grown a ton as a team, but putting him and Johnson together works a little better as a defensive line, especially when you add Adam Hall's size to that group. Line three

Walker-Johnson-Hall

I'm in the get the three most physical guys out there together for the ulitimate pest line so I want Tootoo to make the team. This team plays better with him out there.

Hordichuk-Nichol-Tootoo

Defense units are a little easier, put the best guys out there the most.

Kimmo-Markov
Hamhuis-Eaton
Zidlicky-Suter

yeah i read that too trig...but the way i tend to interrpret it is that maybe the lines he's thinking of would be kariya-legwand-erat(they have made a couple of mentions that erat might be able play rightwing to hint at this before), then sullivan-robitaille-walker(look how he's kept sully-walks together this camp,he might just have decided he likes these two guys chenistry too much to split them up),then harts-johnson-hall again

jeezus who knows what we will really see yet

Sully-Robo-Walks works for me too. We already know Hall and Hartnell play well together. My only problem is that puts two of our slowest skaters on the same line.

I second that. good lines. listening to 104.5 on the way to work this morning they really seem to think perreault is a lock, but I just don't see it.

I'll be anxious to see how Perrault does in the exhibition games, especially on defense. After seeing how we sucked in the faceoff circle, his dominance there becomes an even higher asset. I bet Trotz and Poile are scheming right now how they might be able to keep both Perrault and Robitaille up with the big club.

Somebody better light a fire under Beech's arse soon, as it is becoming a two-horse race,IMO.

Mark Howard knows less about hockey than Kevin Ingram. Who was on the morning show talking about it?

After last night's pre-season game (NAS 4 STL 3), Randy Robitaille may have the edge over Kris Beech, for the moment. I really don't think Yanic Perreault will make the team, despite the fact that I was a booster of the team picking him up. (Of course, that was before they picked up all those other centers.)

As for the opening day, here's my forward line-up...

Paul Kariya - David Legwand - Scott Hartnell
Martin Erat - Greg Johnson - Steve Sullivan
Adam Hall - Randy Robitaille - Scott Walker
Darcy Hordichuk - Scott Nichol - Jeremy Stevenson

Hartnell, after last season, and based on the way he's been playing in training camp, deserves to be on at least the second line. There's been talk of using Johnson more offensively. Well, why not have him center two scoring threats like Erat and Sullivan. And Hall and Walker can both score, and can make up for any of Robitaille's shortcomings. We'd get consistent scoring from three lines.

Anyhoo...

I've yet to see Willie at camp, so I wonder what he's based it on...

From what I can tell I'd say it's because Perreault is a veteran and such a good faceoff guy. which makes sense and all, but he's not exactly what we need and we haven't even signed him yet. as far as I know he could sign with any team he wants to right now.

I dunno about Erat and Kariya on the same line. Wouldn't Hartnell on the RW be a better choice? Hartnell clears up some space for Kariya, whereas Erat doesn't.

Mind you...this is an outsider's perspective, so don't be too harsh...

Kariya-Legwand-Hartnell
Walker-Robitaille-Sullivan
Hall-Johnson-Erat
Hordichuk-Nichol-Tootoo

It would be a more balanced lineup and mixes grit with speed.

The defense on this team is just putrid sick...

Hartnell = LW or Center if need be, nothing else

Curious why not Erat and Kariya on the same line? They don't play the same style, Erat does battle in the corners, and is 6' 200 plays with a little grit.

I like Hartnell on Kariya's line and Erat playing with Sullivan.

I too like Erat on Kariya's line, and think it would open up more space for Kariya. If defenses focus in on Kariya, Erat will burn them with his speed and skill Erat has also opened up a ton of space for his linemates in the past due to his crazy puck-control ability. Erat's physical abilities are also under-rated, and his corner work is excellent.

Kariya-Legwand-Erat line would be deadly fast... easily the fastest line in the NHL.

While I think Hartnell would make a good linemate for Kariya, I think Erat would be better (mainly due to speed and creative-abilities).
