Good...however.

Samsonov-Koivu-Kovalev
Higgins-Plekanec-Ryder
Perezhogin-Bonk-Johnson
Bégin-Lapierre-Latendresse
Downey or Murray - no need for both

Markov-Komisarek
Souray-Dandenault
Streit-Rivet
Bouillon/Niniimaa

The experiment with Streit as a forward has been fruitful but in the end, he's a defensman

I still don't like Sammy with Kovy so switch Higgins and Sammy. Rest is fine with me, and then you're totally right, especially after his injury but even healthy, Bégin should never play center again.

Having said that seems that at practice today it looked like:

Higgins-Koivu-Ryder
Kovalev-Plekanec-Johnson
Sammy-Bonk-Lats
?-?-?

I'd agree with this as well, however I still believe Grabovski was much better in the few games he played than Lapierre. Too bad he's injured.

I think Sammy and Higgins on the same line would be amazing.

While I agree, I think there is a very specific reason Kovalev and Koivu are not playing on the same line: It's too obvious to not have been tried. I feel like there is something we don't know that is keeping this combination from happening.

Mine:

Perezhoghin - Koivu - Kovalev
Higgins - Plekanec - Ryder
Samsanov - Bonk - Johnson
Latendresse - Lapierre - Streit

When Begin gets back, move Streit back to D

Also,

Markov - Rivet (Rivet is 10X better on this pairing)
Souray - Komiserak (Souray and Rivet together = not good)
Bouillon - Dandenault

So who's deserving this spot? It's not about deserving a spot, it's about creating some offense, and I think that putting our most talented players together could end up being good...I think it would be a good experiment to try...the team's going nowhere right now, so why not?

Here is my thoughts. I think if Carbo is thinking like the rest of us, it's time now that the message has been sent to put Samsonov on a line with Koivu, now give him every opportunity to succeed, nothing else is working on the top 6 anyways.

Samsonov Koivu Ryder / Lats (much rather anyone else here, but need a scorer, maybe Kost)
Higgins Plekanek Kovalev
Perezhogin Bonk Johnson
Latendresse / Ryder Lapierre Streit

He deserved a chance on the first line the moment he stepped in the door in my opinion. For me, it doesn't have anything to do about him crying to the media, it's about giving equal opportunity. Streit played on the first line, why not Sammy?

Don't Koivu and Kovalev play on the same line during the PP sometimes?

Lapierre has been playing better than Begin did early in the season. Don't see Carbo putting him back in Hamilton. Carbo will continue to bench Perez before he does that.

That depends on what you want on the team - in my opinion, Begin and Lapierre bring totally different things to the table. Myself, I'd rather Begin and his "spark" right now.

Agreed. But I think that Begin's presence could be very useful on our PK (struggling badly as you must know). But I have to agree that Lapierre is playing well. Tough decision.

Hilarious, the guy clears waivers and you want him on the first line of our team.....29 other teams don't even want the guy but the Habs should play him on the 1st. Makes perfect sense, why didn't Carbo think of this before?
Hey, Let's give Niniimaa a raise and put him on the first pairing with Traverse while we're at it

Since we're all throwing out the lines we'd like to see...

Perezhogin - Koivu - Kovalev
Samsonov - Plekanec - Ryder
Higgins - Bonk - Johnson
Begin - Lapierre - Downey

That first line was the best one we've had since the lockout and it kills me that it hasn't been tried since October, 2005.

I think Higgins deserves to be on a higher line than Ryder, but Ryder has negative value as a defensive player so he shouldn't be on a line that's main concern is stopping the other team from scoring.

When Begin gets back, he should be on the wing which means Lapierre should be kept around. I don't really want Downey in the regular lineup, but I like him more than Murray and want Streit to stick to defense.

My favorite idea is to waive Murray and Downey, send Lapierre back to Hamilton, and call up Grabovsky and Kostitsyn to play on a line with Perezhogin, but there's probably a better chance of Cristobal Huet getting a hat trick than that happening.

Since we're on that subject, here's what I thought of yesterday.

Johnson Koivu Kovalev
Latendresse Plekanec Perezhogin
Higgins Bonk Ryder
Streit Lapierre Murray/Bégin

I have no use for a guy who works his ass off and still amounts to nothing, i.e. Samsonov.

I would much rather send Samsonov to Hamilton than keep him on the team, but if we are going to use him we might as well put him in a situation where it's possible for him to be successful.

When Samsonov is at his best, he's a good player to have on offense. Unfortunately he doesn't do anything else well so when he's not scoring, he's only hurting the team. Putting him on a defensive line is a waste of time.

Because Streit made a name for himself for the last 52 something games and earned his spot while Sammy was invisible and practically useless.
