I don't think Alfy is the key player to watch. Granted he's on a major slump, but he's got 6 points in 10 games. That's awful for him. More attention should be put on the Shraggie Heater duo for they have been tearing it up over the past few games. Both have 13 points in 10 games, and most of that production has come in the last 5 or 6 games.
Now that's a different team than what we've seen earlier this season, we were lucky they were cold because they would have made us look like the Leafs. We were lucky to get a point now let's get 2 more and let them out of the playoff picture
The Russian line should be interesting, Sammy and Perez are hot and it will rub off on Kovalev.
Thats the line I really hope we see. I think Lats is a bit too slow for the third line, and I want him to earn his ice time. Pleck did a good job on the second line but didn't work and think he coul play on the third at least. In another senario, I wouldn't mind seing Begin-Bonk-Johnson.
