Oh stop it - if you live in North America and DON'T speak with an accent, you're more than likely half something other than your last name. Hell, I'm twice as much Irish as I am Scottish (last name Graham - hence the enthusiastic rooting for Bruce). I'll give you credit for Girardi, let us Mics have Cally, damn it!

Isn't fun to have these silly mock fights rather than to be eating our insides up over missed calls or Rachunek own goals or any of the other myriad things that were so distressing two months ago?

Huge Orr supporter but I agree on ultimately having him out of the lineup and having Ortmeyer in his spot.. No problem with those things.

Not completely sure though when it comes down to it... We have guys like Avery and Hollweg who can act in their roles as agitators a whole lot better if they have a big tough guy standing behind them. Then again, enforcers just dont seem to have a big role in the playoffs.

No prob with Orr sitting at that point and Ortmeyer is valuable in a number of ways.

They played awesome tonight...I love this line. Funny too that they didn't get a chance to practice together either. Talk about chemistry. All three play similar styles and fed off each other well.

Orr has played his role very well, but I don't see him suiting up if we make the playoffs. There's never any fighting in the post-season, and we need to be able to roll 4 lines. Hossa brings more to the table than Orr when you consider there's little fighting.

Hossa-Nylander-Jagr
Callahan-Avery-Shanahan
Cullen-Straka-Prucha
Hollweg-Betts-Ortmeyer

There's your forward lines.

I may be mistaken but didn't hossa-straka-jagr play really well together? what do you think about this?

hossa-straka-jagr
callahan-avery-shanahan
prucha-nylander-cullen
hollweg-betts-ortmeyer

You have to love having every player on your top 3 lines having 20 goal potential

Prucha - Straka - Jagr = Czeching line
Cullen - Nylander - Hossa = AnHaMo line (sorry could not come up with a name so I picked the first letters from their draft teams)
Shanahan - Avery - Callahan = Shamrock line (love the name btw)
Hollweg - Betts - Ortmeyer = HBO line

Marcel might be better than good young talent. He has always showed glimpses of the Hossa, before his injury he was showing it consitantly playing with better players...getting minutes.

but he's ashamed of that half and doesn't talk about it much

Actually, the Shamrock Line is very Politically Correct of you Fly.

Growing up in Hells Kitchen, I think we would have preferred the Mick Line.

Being called a mick from another mick is much more endearing than the PC version.

I'll refer to them as the Mick line.

I think Al made up Shamrock line . He was mentioning it in pregame like 10 times.

Anyway, Callahan said he's half Italian when asked about how much scoring 2 on St. Patty's day meant to him. Which more than likely means his mom is Italian.

Some of you may think I'm crazy, but I think that for some games, like this one, YOU HAVE TO have Orr in the lineup. He had a big impact in the 1st period setting the tone for the game!

It is hard to sit anyone when Hossa and Straka get back...but I have to go with sitting Isbister and Hollweg(not Orr). Again, depending on matchup we can go with Hollweg instead of Orr.

Straka - Nylander - Jagr
Callahan - Avery - Shanahan
Hossa - Cullen - Prucha
Orr - Betts - Ortmeyer
sub: Hollweg

The first line was dominant with Hossa there - I really think he has turned a corner (but then again, I was a huge fan from day one, so I may be over-rating) and you lose NOTHING defensively with him there instead of Straka. Heck, the only reason he got the chance on the first line is that he first improved his game so much in terms of hard work and defensive responsibility while playing on the 3rd line/4th line/PK. Meanwhile, I think that Straka generates more of his own offense, while providing equal defensive conscience (although MUCH less physical presence) and therefore would do better on the third line.

The only real question in my mind is whom Orr replaces for those super tough games (Orts?). It galls me to admit it, but he's been part of the equation in this great run over the last 12 games and he hasn't looked out of place. And as much as I hope for Fedoruk's health, there's no longer any debating whether or not Orr can be a heavyweight. (TBBB, be kind in your response...)
That is exactly the lineup I'd want to see and I think if Hossa comes back and the leg feels alright I'd want him up with Nylander-Jagr to do all the corner work and be the defensive saftey valve.

And I love the speed of the Straka-Cullen-Prucha line which would allow Orts to replace Orr on the 4th line for the PO's because with fighting almost a nonfactor come PO time there is no reason for Orr to take a spot.

At the same time though, Avery is a British name, is his mom Irish or something?

The line really looked good last night. The line is the total package, it has scoring, toughness, and energy. I think they will help lead us to the playoffs.

Avery

(origin: Gaelic.) From Aimhrea (the "mh" having the sound of "v"), denoting contention or disagreement. It may be from Avery, a granary, or from Aviarius, Latin, a bird-keeper.

I love this line. Could you imagine an all Irish line? Is that a first? They look real good together, good chemistry, nice puck movement (reffering to the goal too).
