I was wondering what people thought of Ortmeyer... I'm a Michigan fan and so watched him for the last four years. He's one of my favorites but I was a little surprised that he got called up so fast. How's he doing?
lets say when lindros comes back sather really messes with the lineup
ruchinsky holik lindros
barnaby nedved kovalev
simon messier carter
moore lundmark ortmeyer
leetch de vries
poti purinton and hlavac as the extras
is this the best lineup for this team?
Overlooking the obvious--namely that you have Poti both playing and sitting, some questions:
Why do you assume that Moore will be recalled? Why do you have Kovalev going back to Nedved's wing when he's picked up his play with Holik? Why do you think Lindros will play wing and not center? Why did you throw out the best line from day one--Messier/Barnaby/Simon--and put Barnaby with the one center he shows absolutely no chemistry with on the roster? What happened to LaCouture?
Obviously, I can't speak for Sather, but I wonder why you think he will make so many changes, much less return to a number of combinations that haven't worked well in the past?
