The coaches love Kelly, so I don't think he will either. That leaves Neil, Varada, and Eaves. Unfortunately, it looks like Eaves is the odd guy out, although the other two are playing worse right now. Still 20 more games to go. Maybe Eaves develops chemistry with Arnason and grabs a spot on that line.
agreed, Eaves fate is on his stick.

I think it will be Kelly to begin with and then he might be shuffled in if someone is not playing well. Martin's mistake was to play his boys over the talent, hopefully history won't repeat. Kelly is a rookie and he will understand it better than anyone else and will probably push those that are playing to play better. Plus, he will get time to play during the playoffs, almost guarenteed.

I chose Varada, but if he starts playing like he did in the stretch before the olympics. Frankly I was close to choosing Neil, of any player on the sens he has been invisible for a long time.

This is what I'd like to see heading into the Playoffs.

Heatley - Spezza - Alfredsson
Smolinski - Arnason - Havlat
Schaefer - Fisher - Eaves (this is a line I've been wanting to see for a while)
Vermette - Kelly - Neil

D as usual

I think most people are voting on who they'd like to sit, as opposed to who they actually think will sit.

I like those lines too for the playoffs, although I think in the interm ( till Havlat comes back) we will have

big line
Smoke - Arnason - Eaves
Schaeffer - Fisher - Neil
Vermette - Kelly - Varada
Mcgratton for certain games

Schubie goes back to #7 dman but I think he will see a lot of time on D in the next 20 games as we give guys days off (recover from Olympics, rest for playoffs...)

The last 20 games could certainly affect my opinion, but I'd guess at a line-up without Eaves to start the playoffs.

heater-spez-alfie
smoke-arnason-havlat
schaef-fish-neil
vermette-kelly-varada
