Agree, this line could do some serious damage.. And I would like to see Higgins play with Plekanec so they can be used as our first PK unit..
Tanguay Koivu A.Kost
Higgins Plekanec Latendresse
S.Kost Lang Kovalev
If it could prove not to be a liability, I'd love to see Lats on the Lang line with that line-up.
Higgins - Plekanec - S. Kostitsyn can be a line sent out against opposting top units as a shutdown trio, while also being an offensive line. Or you can leave Lats there, and occasionally sub in Kostopoulos for him.
Still can't believe Kosty has barely ever played with Saku.
That's exactly what he needs imo. Have a guy like Koivu and Tanguay feed him the puck.
Seems like common sense to me..but that's just me..
won't happen on RW coz he does not want turnovers created at the bleu line
carbo does not play forwards on their off wing unless they are very responsible deffensively (skosty-tanguay) or established players like kovy who has been playing there since day 1 in NHL at that position. So he will play him LW.
People say that tanguay and koivu would feed akosty but we forget that he is a very good passer
