After a loss Carbo changes the lines so....

What lines do you think will stay, and what will be changed?

I believe Carbo is going to keep the Koivu line, but maybe make some other shuffles...I expect something like this.

A Kost-Koivu-Dago
Tanguay-Plecks-Kovy
Higgins-Lang-Kosto (Kosto won't go anywhere how he's playin now)
Lats/S Kost-Laps-Laraque/Begin (I think they are going to sit Begin or Laraque and bring back one of the 21 year olds)

What are you thoughts? And I'm not asking what line YOU WANT but what you think CARBO will go with.

I think one of Lats / Sergei Kostitsyn will get a shot back in the line-up. O'Byrne, too, if one of Markov / Dandenault can't play.

SKost in with Laps and Begin, leave Lats and laraque out.

Are you sure you want to form a KKK line? I'm not too sure Laraque would welcome this...

well AK was hurt for a while and that sort of messed up the rythem of the line clicking. And Plekanec was not very good either.

But if it worked ALL last season, how can you give up on that now that AK is back and flying out there. I say give that line one more chance to succeed.

The line wasn't working, then A.Kost was put on a line with Lang and he looked like he was back. So Carbo took him off that line after a couple of games and put him back with Pleks/Kovy and he couldn't get as involved in the game because he rarely saw the puck. So Carbo put him on the 4th line with Lapierre and his brother and the line worked and A.Kost played well. Then he was moved to the Koivu/D'Agostini line and has look fantastic for the most part. That line works right now, the Kost/Pleks/Kovy line worked last year and has rarely looked good this year. Why go back to what may not work when we have something that does work? Although you appear to be a Leafs fan, so maybe you just want to sabotage the Habs

I think Carbo will make the following changes:

Switch Higgins and Tanguay.

SKost to replace Laraque.

O'Byrne to replace an INJURED defenceman, if there is one.

I like, with one major change.....I would switch SKost and Tanguay. Tangs belongs on the second line, but more importantly belongs on LW.

Putting SKost on RW with two fast, disciplined, hard-working players who are responsible in their own end as well will give him good role models. It's a nice 3rd line, if you ask me.

OTOH, if Carbo wants to bring SKost back via the 4th line before graduating him, simply switch him with Kosto in the scenario I just gave.

Please no.

How can you possibly advocate putting Akost back with Kovy?

Seriously..

I think they should put Kovalev in a Latendresse jersey...

That way Canadiens fans will be both happy that Kovalev is benched and Latendresse is shaping into an offensive threat.

Suppose he doesn't cool off. What then? d'Ago already has as many goals as SKost and one more than Lats.

That'd be worse! Then they'd we'd be screaming at Lats for turning over the puck every time he's on the ice.
