Mogilny: What Line??

When Mogilny returns from his hip injury where will Quinn put him? You don't want to break up any strong units like Roberts - Sundin - Renberg. (Of course alot can change in 2 months)

But where would you put him if he returned today?

I'd go with:
Roberts - Sundin - Renberg
Stajan - Nieuwendyk - Nolan
Tucker - Antropov - Mogilny (Tucks and AlMo played together quite a bit 2 yrs ago and were dynamite)
Fitzgerald - Reichel - Domi

OR
Roberts - Sundin - Renberg
Tucker - Nieuwendyk - Mogilny
Stajan - Antropov - Nolan
Fitzgerald - Reichel - Domi

As well as Renberg's played. He's no Almo.

Now now. It was just a question. Probably brought up because of how well the lines are playing.

Hey, why put him in at all; the teams playing great... Of course he goes back with Sundin on the first line. But then, this is Quinn, so he probably will leave Roberts and Renberg there.

Not having Sundin and Mogilny play together makes about as much sense as playing Nieuwendyk as a winger, when he gets back he'll be playing on the right wing with Sundin and good old Stone Hands will be back on the 3rd or 4th line.

If things keep on going the way they have Quinn can have 3 verry solid lines this is how I would position them.

Roberts Sundin Renberg
Stajan Nieuwendyk Nolan
Tucker Antropov Mogilny
Fitzgerald Reichel Domi

The first two lines have been solid this year. Adding Mogilny to the 3rd line would give 3 verry solid scoring lines. Quinn likes to roll the lines and I think the Trucker Antropov Mogilny line would be dynomite. With a very effective 4th line.

IMO I think this would be the best option for Quinn specilly aginst teams like Philly & Ottawa who have loads of depth them selves.

Mogilny is no third liner and should be on the top two lines. Stajan gets bumped down when Mogs returns.

No one is saying he is a 3rd liner. The thing is Quinn loves to roll his lines everyone getting his fare share. Mogs will be on the #1 or #2 PP and would be on the PK as well so he would get his minutes.

While in New Jersey, Almo spent the majority of the season on the third
line and referred to himself as a "plumber". A plumber with 43 goals. Who you follow over the boards isn't as important as WHEN you're over the boards or how much ice-time you receive. If Quinn rolls the lines than no problem. Chemistry is most important. Alex has been quoted as saying in regards to Mats "when 5 on 5, we're better apart". I agree.
Power play and obviously PK, is another story. I actually look forward to
Leaf penalties. I would like to see Newy and Mogilny & whoever on a line for a while. Anyone other than Antropov.

You could say that someone is on the third line but if they are getting more minutes than two lines and less than one you have a second line. Call it what you will but Mogs is a top line player and not one that sits on teh third line.

Did you read the post that McFly_GoLeafsGo made? He has Mogs on the third line, all I said is that he belongs higher up in the lineup and if you see my post above I describe what I feel to be a top line.

I have Mogs on the 3rd line also. I think it adds loads of scoring to three lines.. IMO it would be best over all for the leafs.

I don't think it is the best for the team but that is my opinion and that is what this site is for. Mogs is our best offensive weapon and those type of players are not played on the third line. But if you want to give third line time to Mogs I am glad you are not the coach.

I think that since we are getting production out of our first line, Almo should be placed on the second or third line to increase scoring there. The fact is that Quinn rolls all four lines, which means Mogilny will be playing similar minutes to when he's on the first line. For the Leafs saying that their is a number 1 line is almost useless, because no one line gets a huge amount of ice time.

My point is replace Renberg with Almo and the first line keeps producing (and it is producing now)

OR

Put him on another line, increasing scoring on that line and make it even harder for opposing teams to shut down our scoring.

The second option seems better to me.

I believe that the lines should be something like this when Almo returns should be like McFly_GoLeafsGo's second option:

Roberts - Sundin - Renberg
Tucker - Nieuwendyk - Mogilny
Stajan - Antropov - Nolan
Fitzgerald - Reichel - Domi

The Leafs don't win through one line, they win with contributions from everyone.

Here is my idea for the lines:

Tucker - Sundin - Mogilny
Roberts - Neiuwendyk - Renberg
Stajan - Antropov - Nolan
Fitzgerald - Reichel - Domi

Two years ago the 1st line clicked and was on fire, why not try it again? Sundin and Mogilny has good chemistry and Darcy Tucker is playing very well and adds some grit to that line.

Roberts and Neiuwendyk have proven chemistry. All three are very gritty players which would make for an interesting line.

Stajan and Nolan played well together in the past and Antropov gives that line a young, could be, dominant center.

Fitzgerald and Domi both bring a gritty presence to the 4th line and Robert Reichel is a very skilled player who can pass the puck very well and set up Fitzgerald and Domi for a couple of chances.

I guess it all depends on how much ice-time the line gets
