What are the line combos in Manchester?

I haven't caught any of their web casts this year, so I'm somewhat in the dark.

They do change up a bit, but for the most part last night's lines against Portland were:

Tambellini - Clarke - Smyth
James - Ryan - Tukonen
Flinn - Giuliano - Pushkarev

Of note, the only centers listed on the scoresheet were James and Ryan, who tended to skate on the same line. Bernakevitch also had some time on the ice.

As Reggie said, the combinations change frequently except for the Tambellini-Smyth combo...

The organization is very thin at center in Manchester...

It makes me wonder if the Kings are waiting to see if they can get Lehoux back, because they really should sign a playmaking center (practically any at this point) if they don't want Pushkarev's development to be hurt by playing with Flinn.

Are Kanko and Murphy injured, then?

My bad on the "Flinn" line. He is being centered by Giuliano.

Roussin and Murphy swap out as healthy scratches. Kanko has been sidelined with a groin injury. Bernakevitch is also in the lineup.

Kanko is injured (groin) and Murphy was a healthy scratch last game...

In the past few games, Hughes has dressed 7 d-men and 10 forwards. The AHL game rosters are 2-goalies and 17-skaters....

With Lehoux back, any updated thoughts on the lineups?

Just a SWAG on my part but, I could see him on the second line centering Tukonen and Pushkarev.

Now that we have Lehoux - who is a legit center - the question becomes (I think) who is the #1 center: Lehoux or Ryan? Last season, Lehoux was #2 behind Cammy and ahead of Ryan.

If he remains ahead of Ryan and is slated to be the #1 center, does he center Clarke and Smyth?

Then does Ryan center Tambellini and Tukonen?

Then does James center Giuliano and Pushkarev? Or is Giules the center?

Does Bernakevitch become our 4th center?

I think it's reasonable to assume it may play out this way. I'd like to hear from King Blazer on this.

I wouldn't break up Smyth and Tambellini. They've been playing too well together.

OK, my SWAG:

Clarke - Lehoux - Smyth
Tambs - Ryan - Tukonen
Giuliano - James - Pushkarev (LW)

Keeping in mind that Hughes has a penchant for throwing lines together as if he were tossing jacks, so literally anything could go.

I don't know: they've both been playing the first line with Clarke. Who do you see moving to the second line, Clarke? I just don't know.

I just keep the first line as is for now. The Jimmy Hughes shuffle can start from the second line down.

Roussin has shown nothing to date. Don't exactly what the problem is there. We know he had the numbers in the "Q" but so far only has a goal in 13 games played. Maybe a confidance trip to Reading is needed. He could probably log more ice time there.

Has he been scratched at all yet? If not, it puzzles me why that was considered for Tambellini, but not for Roussin.
