Brisebois was not the reason we lost last night. Our defense (and goalie) was let up 2 goals in 4 periods.. we needed to produce some more offense, and our forwards couldn't get going.

Streit is obviously the weak link right now on defense though .. as was shown by his considerable drop in ice-time. He played just 11 minutes yesterday .. and I'd be very shocked if he played on defense next game.

I fully expect O'Byrne to play with Gorges, Hammer with Brisebois and Streit to take Dandy's spot up front.

You're right....Brisebois definitely wasn't the reason we lost last night, actually I thought Brisebois has been playing very well in the 3 playoff games he has played so far. He is keeping it simple and making the smart plays....kudos to him for doing that. But there is no denying the fact that he is too soft and is scared to take a hit. I've watched him skate into the corner for the puck the last 2 games and slow down to let the Bruins player get to the puck first so he wouldn't get hit....and there is nothing that drives me nuts more than a player doing that because he is scared to get checked.

At this point though, I would rather have Brisebois back on the blueline instead of Streit. Streit should only be used on the powerplay. Get O'Byrne in the lineup and let him make some big hits and help turn this series around before it goes down the crapper!!!

Yeah, I thought so too. The whole season Carbo refused to use Breezer in back-to-backs and he starts now... Anyways, Breezer played decent though, I thought Streit was a lot worse on the D.

Greg Stewart/Mikhail Grabovski..come on Carbo!

When is Carbs finally gonna put this kid in the lineup?

FFS, scratch Dandy and Latendresse already, and replace them with Grabs and Stewart.

Kosty Sr - Plek - Kovy --> they're gonna have to wake up
Kosty Jr - Higg - Ryder --> producing nicely
Grabs - Lapps - Stewart --> excellent combination of speed/skill/size
Begin - Smoke - Kosto --->

or, when Bouillon and Saku come back:

Kosty Sr - Plek - Kovy
Kosty Jr - Higgins - Stewart
Streit - Koivu - Ryder
Begin - Smoke- Kosto

Markov - Komo
Hammer - Brisebois (been absolutely great so far)
Bouillon - Gorges

That looks much nicer IMO.

then when Koivu comes back, you sit either Grabs/Lapps/Ryder.

Thoughts?

Personally i don't want to see Grabovski and i prefer Latendresse over him for the physical aspect he brings even if he doesn't do much offensively.

On the other hand i wouldn't mind Stewart over Dandenault.

Maybe we need a better defense but we gave 5 goals in 3 games.

Offense is the problem and Streit is not the only one who does not perform.

We will see tomorrow what Carbonnneau will do.
I think the adjustments are global not one person in particular.

I would like to see O'Byrne but Brisebois was not as bad as you guys are saying. He almost did put the game away for us (last 0.1 second) in the previous game.

Anyway, I will support Carbo's decisions. The coaches are better placed than us to judge and I am sure he does not choose his players based on friendship. He is a winner.
brisebois was awefull last, i was there last night 6 rows away from the ice in boston and brisebois couldnt win a one on one battle if his life depended on it...

streit also was bad, especially on the lucic goal, he should play up front and obyrne should come back in

another player that i cant stand is latendresse, he is completely useless, and his speed is a big factor. being down at ice level last night in boston, me and my buddies were really amazed with the speed of the game, and latendresse is just way too slow to follow a fast pace like that, i just dont see what latendresse does better than what stewart does. atleast stewart has speed and is also big
i would like to see this lineup next game:

kostitsyn plekanec kovalev (they need to wake up)
kostitsyn higgins ryder (even though they are invisible, no one can play a top 6 role)
begin smolinski begin (by far our best line in this series)
streit lapierre stewart

markov komisarek
hamrlik obyrne
bouillon gorges

No Grabovsky, he won't do anything. Just replace Brisebois with O'Byrne since he is getting owned physically in the corners, and replace Streit with Bouillon. Then Streit can go up front and take Gui's spot. If not Gui then Dandenault.

Stewart had a really good game, but I still don't want him in. grabs... duno I think he isn't ready yet.


I'Ld change dandy with streit, and put Obyrne in
Duno if BOuillon can make it, but if he can, change with breezer. I like breezer so far but with the style Boston's playing right now (aiming at our D-men), Breezer is prone to making big mistakes.

brisebois was great in game 1, good in game 2, absolutely atrocious in game 3
the physical part of the game has really taken a toll on him and obyrne should replace him ASAP

I don't get the "Grabovaski erection" on these boards.

If Plekanec plays like a little girl against Boston, do you seriously think another smallish forward like Gravoski could do something.

When is it time to split it up ?
I believe he did for a little last game, I saw Kosty-Pleks-Kosty once or twice and then it went back to the classic Kosty-Pleks-Kovy.

O'Byrne needs to be in the line-up , but to replace Streit who must play in front ( Dandeneault spot ) . That would also mean that Brisebois would get less time on the ice , so that he would be more effective . I wouldn't mind to see Stewart next game , to replace Ryder , because it would be a good thing to beef up our team . By now , all our smaller players are in trouble , excepted for Sergei Kostitsyn . Stewart is big and fast .

First of all you sound like Don Cherry with the way you are spelling Grabovski and second of all the reason Plekanec is playing like a little girl is because he is NOT moving his feet. The regular season showed than when Plekanec is skating it is difficult for opposing defence to stay on him, if Grabs played with Latendresse and Lapierre his size would not be as big of an issue and also he'd help get the puck through the neutral zone with his speed, something our players haven't been able to do.
