Yup exactly. These guys just have to make sure to keep it out of their net. It's up to Kovalev, Ryder, Higgins, Zednik, Ribeiro to put it in the net.

Begin? I'd rather have Ribs on the top line. Sure he's not the most popular guy on the team..or most talented, but he plays more of a similar style to Koivu than Begin does, one would think.

Begin and Higgins showed good chemistry during the regular season. Higgins is just a good versatile player. He can play on any line, with any center. The key is to get Ryder to mesh with Begin and Higgins off the cycle. They'll be able to dig the puck out of the corner. If Ryder gets dirty in front of the net, he'll get his chances when they throw it at the net.

No....Begin is a gritty guy that works in the corners....like Koivu!! I think I would put Begin between Ryder and Higgins....what can it hurt??

Begin IMHO is the heart and soul of this team since Koivu left.. Maybe him being on the first line will enspire the team to play a great game!! IMHO great move by Gainey!

Yes but he does not have the passing abilities nor the vision of Saku........

I think that Pleky would have been a better choice but since his line seems to work well it's a no touch i guess.

Pleks would have been a good choice, but we have to keep hem with Z and Pizzy or else they won't do anything either

Some questions were meant to be asked but not answered. My theory is that, according to quantum mechanics, even though he does not have the necessary skill to be a top 6 winger, he has a non-zero probability of "tunneling" into a that position.
