No, not really. He was at least 4th in line for a call-up based on his training camp. Weber, Carle and even Henry are all better at this point.

As for the topic at hand, it should be Latendresse - Plekanec - Sergei. I really am not a fan of the looks of SK-Pleks-Kosto and Lats-Laps-Begin as the bottom 2 lines.

It's not all about points.
Maybe not for Kostopoulos, but it is about the points for Plekanec and S.Kost. Putting a guy on that line with barely any finish doesn't help them. Nor will it help Lats to be placed on with 2 grinders.

Plek/S.Kost need someone with more finish than Kosto. Lats has that whether you like him or not.

Not only that, but I'd be very interested in seeing Begin/Lappy with Kosto. I think they'd make a great 4th line.

You guys are funny, there is no way in a million years that Carbo puts Latendresse on the right side. Not even Andrei Kostitsyn had that privilege, let alone a guy coming off the press box...

The perfect lines should be:

A. Kostitsyn - Koivu - D'Agostini
Tanguay - Lang - Kovalev
Latendresse - Plekanec - S.Kostitsyn
Begin - Lapierre - Kostopoulos

I'm looking forward to see that 3rd line in action. Hopefully, Carbo will have the same idea as well.

Somewhere on this planet, Guillaume Latendresse is celebrating right now Christopher Higgins injury, drinking high class champagne...

Is it just me or a line-up without Higgins name looks beautiful ?

Why does Carbo like so much Kostopoulos? I think he will put Latendresse instead of Kosto on the third line. Carbo needs to wake up! How many points has Kosto during the last 5 games ? 1 point !! WTF!! Kosto reminds me of Begin, same determination put lower speed. Why is Begin playing in fourth line if kosto is playing third... Maybe he reminds him of himself (carbo) haha, no skills at all.

Yeah Carbo had no skills whatsoever, not like he won a couple of Cups and Selke trophies.

If Lats had a 10th of the jam Kosto has he would still be in the lineup. You need players who can muck it up and dig pucks out for the skill guys. We are a top team in the league, I think Carbo knows better than any of us who should be playing and where.

Yes, I went too far saying carbo had no skills, but still why doesn't he put Kosto on the 4th line instead of Laraque (who doesnt bring jam, like u say, he just counter-attacks lol!! If not, he's invisible) and put a talented player like Lats (well at least more talented than kosto) on the third line?

Absolutely not.


Right now, you need to keep Begin and Lapierre together.

It's either Lats sits and Laraque does the 4th line, or Laraque sits and Kosto/Lats do either the 3rd or 4th line.



I think Lats will play 1/2 the game on the 4th and if he's skating even a little he'll end the game with sergei and pleks.

As long as we win hockey games I don't really care where the players are slotted.

Our coaching staff have years of experience with this stuff, not all coaching but dealing with NHL players. Maybe Kosto works his ass off every practice and Lats dogs it sometimes. We only get to see the games not what happens behind the scenes. I think Kosto is too good for the 4th line, he proved it with his play in the playoffs last year too.

Lats is good and will be a great player imo but he has to show that he can bring it every night and not rely on others to generate his chances, get them yourself.

As far as Laraque is concerned, the guy didn't have much of a training camp and is a bit slow for our team but I think he will prove his worth as the season goes on, I also loved how he embarrassed Lucie.

I think next game the lines will start off like this:

S. Kostitsyn - Pleks - Kostopoulos
Latendresse - Lapierre - Laraque/Begin

If Latendresse plays well I think as the game goes on he will get moved up to the Plekanec line. I expect him to come out hammering everything in sight tomorrow.

I think if there are call-ups it'll be be Weber or Carle over Henry. If they're going to bring someone in, and they'd only do it if O'Byrne doesn't regain his place, it'll be someone who can help the PP.

On forward, I think Stewart may have slid down the chart. Lehoux might be a good choice if the person is likely to spend significant time eating nachos. Maybe White?

However, unlike defense, we still have a spare body, so I doubt they make any call-ups unless there is another injury.

The main reason I'd like to have Kosto on the third is because i think Lats and Lappy have good chemistry together that we rarely get to see.

I would recall Weber and give Brisebois a rest until Komisarek comes back.

My lines too; Otherwise the three guys in a bit of a slump are on the same line (Pleks Lats Sergei); Lapierre/Bégin can help pave the way to Lats and Kosto brings balls to the Sergei/Plek duo.

I don't get the point of a 100% energy line and then 3 lines that play like wusses all night. I like how Carbo is trying to play grit and talent on every line. If Lats plays like he just said he will on TV (Like D'Agostini) and crash the net; he might finish the night with Plek; which I'm not sure is a positive for him these days!

Weber and O'Byrne in the lineup?

Plus, I'm not sure Weber gets the call before Henry or Carle.

Henry is way to slow

Weber is doing well and he is our best prospect in Hamilton so he should get a look and Brisebois needs a rest, he makes way too many turnovers and he looks injuted

How they should be...

Bégin has twice as many goals as Latendresse (4 vs. 2), so that makes him the offensive forward and Lats the plugger. Sorry about that.

Hammer with O'byrne ???
Again?
Wasn't it obvious that it was an awful pair ?

It was affecting Hammer's play big time anyway.
