Man we need a center so badly, hopefully Plek can turn it back up to come close to what a 1st liner center plays like.

The solution is clearly more line changes. It's refreshing to see a habs coach trying a A.Kost - Kovy combo.

It's so unoriginal that it might work?

Tanguay Koivu Kovalev

Higgins Plekanec A.Kost

Lats Laps Kosto

MaxPac Metro Stewart

Seems to me that Carbo had the same break than Kovy had and he's back coaching now.

I think Gainey realized that he's gonna live and die with his veterans.

No matter how good MaxPac and D'Ago played, they've been very unproductive.

They'll never understand ?!

KOVALEV WITH AKOST ISN'T WORKING ANYMORE!

I remember that line:
Pacioretty - Plekanec - AKostitsyn

The 3 were on fire, a very good trio.

WHY. THE. HELL. THEY. JUST. DON'T. UNDERSTAND. !?!?!?!?!?

About the only issue is AKost being put with Kovy again. Can't we swap him and Higgins?

Otherwise, I see nothing wrong with it. These were essentially the lines when the Habs had their excellent start (well -- Lats was on the Koivu line back then, but he's done well with Lapierre and Gainey might be reluctant to bump Higgins down the depth chart just yet). MaxPac and d'Ago get sent down, but they're rookies, and I bet this fourth line sees more ice-time than The Stewart-Metropolit-Kostopoulos combo did.

They're all lines that have worked in the past and have had a chance to create some chemistry, even if they don't work anymore (eg. ATAK).

With Kovalev on his wing, it won't happen. I know that Lapierre and Higgins are too fast for him, but Kovalev should be playing with those two for the good of the team. Carbonneau was trying to please Kovalev but keeping him with Plekanec, but this has to stop. Plekanec AND Kostitsyn were better when Patioretti was replacing Kovalev.

The lines I want to see:

Higgins - Lapierre - Kovalev
Patioretti - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Latendresse - Koivu - D'Agostini

I have inserted Kovalev's line first just to make him think he belongs to a first line. Kovalev is as usefull to this team as Ribeiro was: only on the PP. I am not saying he should have been traded for a 9th D-man, but I expect him to get less 5-on-5 icetime. For his good and the one of the team.
