I left out Ribeiro because he didn't play with Hamilton IIRC

He did...For a grand total of 3 games. He played for the citadelles along with Ryder for 2 seasons.

Well maybe people picture the three names moving down the screen, rather than up.

I have just a bad feeling about two extremely slow guys in Bonk and Ryder on the same line against such a fast Canes team.

And Murray centering Kost and Sundstrom I guess.

Sounds like the easiest move, but it can make us a three lines team if these guys don't click quick enough...

Might have been just better to use a 7th Dman in that case.

Same here man... At least with Higgins and Kost on the line, you've got skill + speed. Not to mention we still would have 4 great scoring lines that don't glare any defensive weakness.

I tend to agree, but with Kost playing with Ryder and Higgins, it IS a very inexperienced line.

It might very well be, but with the way Higgins plays, it certainly won't pan out as an inexperienced line. Ryder has also been a pretty good force so far.

I agree with you. I'm just trying to get into Gainey's head.

What a waste of time.

Haha, I agree it's very hard to think like gainey. But as far as the report leads us to believe, Higgins will be returning to his center position, at least for the PP. So I won't rule out the possibility of him centering the 1st or 2nd line.

Their only goal was scored with a PP line of Zednik-Higgins-Ryder. I'm positive that's what we'll see tonight.

If it works on the PP maybe he'll try it later in the game?

Bonk is playing very well with Murray and Sundstrom, so I can't see why he would suck with Higgins and Ryder...

I'm not worried right now with Bonk on the first because if they are not playing really well, we could just give more playing time to our 2nd and 3rd line. They were good in the first 3 game so they would deserve it.


And I really hope to see Kost in the line-up. He can bring so much on the team...he's a very creative player and he can make a great play for a teammate. He can also play physical! Anyways, I guess we will only know later on tonight...

I'd rather Higgins a winger than a center.
