he hasnt said what his 4th line will be....if it isnt bad....just boulerice, then renney will add other players....but if it is, he will prolly dress a big line of jessiman, lessard and possibly fritz, just to make sure....thats y there are only three lines.....that 4th line could bre a monster, or not....he is letting philly decide....my bet is they wont want the monster
Renney will have some of his best players in the line up Saturday (Jagr, Gomez, Drury, Prucha, Lundqvist)... It would be a serious coaching blunder if he doesnt put enough muscle out there to protect our assets...
I like hockeyviper's theory that they are intentially leaving that 4th line open ended
I think the real question should be why we always schedule these teams in the preseason...they'll all have enough chances to cheap shot us in the regular year, why give them extra shots with players who they don't care about...
We should schedule the Western division that we don't see each year, instead of praying for Jagr's safety against a dirty Philly team
also, I'm sure a lot of our protection in Friday's game is b/c of Sutter, we all saw how he went right after Cherry and Anisimov at his first chance, I'm sure that's why all the big guys are sitting
i hate saying this....but i hope we do that to them in that game.....they have no muscle in their line-up really without jansen....lets see how sutter likes it...maybe next time he will think twice.....lets send a message now
I know the team chooses the amount of games they want to play in the pre-season, but do they also choose their actual opponents too? I'd think they chose to go against teams that are closer, and not the ones who are in the West, to save some travel time (strength).
