If you could change one thing about this team, what would it be?

I'm curious where people think we're at, at this moment in time.

Now i'm not talking "LOL TRADE FOR KOVALCHUK", lets be a bit more realistic with our speculation. Would you let Veilleux ride the top line for two weeks to see what he'd do? Would you recall Smaby and let LK ride the bench? Release Hale?

Do you feel we need another top six option? Everyone is riding the high of two wins here, i'm curious what people think.

Put Veilleux on that top line, and keep him there for the next 5-6 games. Get LK off the ice, I dont care how it happens, just make it happen, and get Smaby out there.

Oh, and find a way to get the 4th line more minutes. (At the expense of the 3rd line) With the way that group can change the momentum of a game and draw penalties, you have to find a way to get them more ice time.

Trade Krajicek or send him down if no one wants him.

I would atleast consider sending down Wright at the 9 game mark and call up Hall, Craig or Smoke.

Play Niittymaki until he loses.

At the moment, nothing really. Maybe give Miller a shot on Tanguay and Lecavaliers line. Switch Miller with Veilleux and see how that works. try and get rid of LK and Hale. 9 is too many defensemen to have up. I would rather prefer to have 7 with Ohlund, Hedman, Ranger, Walker, Meszaros, Foster, and Smaby. Less defesemen would also free up space for an extra forward if needed. Othwise the the team is good right now. Just got to keep on winning. Hopefully Tanguay and Vinny will start scoring some goals too...just a matter of time.

Get a winger to play with Vinny and Tanguay.


Oh wait, they had one and he is now playing in New York.

Trade Krajicek, trade Hale if possible if not send him on his way to Norfolk.

Bring up Smaby and Smoke.

Get Smaby some games. Bring Smoke in for the weak link on the bottom 6 and rotate them in and out to keep the honest. Same with Smaby and the defense.

Leave the top 2 lines alone till about game 15, if nothing by then tinker with them. Until then let Tanguay and Lecavalier and Veilleux sort out chemistry.

Send Krajicek through waivers and see what happens. Give Smaby the 6th spot with Walker until Foster's ready to come back and have Hale as a "just-in-case" should the defense suffer an injury.

and keep the forward lines TOGETHER! Let them build some chemistry finally!

Didn't they have to get rid of Prospal's contract in order to sign Tanguay?
And back to the OP, I wouldn't change a thing. They are playing well lately, and found a way to win the other night. Which is something we haven't known how to do in 2 years.

Foster is back in tomorrow.

I'm not quite believing the team on the idea that Prospal money would go to Tanguay. He's still going to get his 2/3rds. NHLnumbers.com has the remaining cap room at 9.7mil. It wouldn't have killed us to have kept Prospal. We knew he was going to have a good year too. I think they got caught up in the idea of having a fast team over all-else, but it ended up that they couldn't find anybody who could take that spot.

Really? That puts us in a nice predicament then with Smaby/Hale/Krajicek if we go with:

Ohlund-Hedman
Mesz-Ranger
Walker-Foster

Trading Krajicek for a bag of pucks and sending Hale to the minors would be the easy part. The question is what to do with Smaby.

1. get a legitimate option to play on lecavalier's wing.
2. get smaby in the line up.


on a related note, the one thing i like the most about this season is the defense pairings being consistent. last year the carousel tactic was a mess.
