Ya because the 4th line is the main problem right now...
Well No and Yes. Who cares about a 4th line when you have 3 lines going well right? Absolutely. But when they're not going well, who can work their ass, create some chances and give some momentum to a team? The 4th line. If you need some spark, and that our talented guys don't feel like giving it, a fine 4th line could start something good.
Lapierre has to be the greatest imposter of this team. Looks like he's trying so hard, work his butt, skate like the wind....but is often out of position, works hard but works bad. Again, this guy is not a centerman. Get Chip in, put him in the wings if you want.
But again, if the first 3 lines would be working...who cares if we have Youppi, Badaboum and the tooth fairy as a 4th line...
Honestly, we look like the Sens....no wonder why we beat them fairly easily. Problem is that we look even worst 'cause we're suppose to have great talent on the first 3 lines...not only 1....
koivu's line is doing fine. they almost produced every game.
plekanec's line has been mediocre since the beginning of the year.
third line has done a ok job. we can't expect them to score every games... they had a hot streak at the beginning of the season... some good games here and there... nothing to really worry about.
and fourth line is doing fine too. they are not really suppose to produce but Laraque had some fights since the beginning of the season. Lapierre did well and Kostpoulos is usually doing what we are expecting from him.
so, the real problem about offensive is the second line. andrei has been even worse than kovalev this season... both are very disapointing.
though, the lack of toughness on our top lines doesn't help too.
