Split the third line rw shifts between the rest of the forwards, and the top 6 forwards in particular. Play 7 d-men including Demers on the PP and if the team is behind. Give him only a few minutes per game even strength. He is our second best offensive d-man, and even if he struggles defensively, I think he can have a more positive (not to mention less negative effect) that Staubitz. I wouldn't mind Ferrerio either. Staubitz has improved, but I am not sure how necessary he is come playoff time. Demers has been a key to our power play.
This is so true, all of it. Ferrerio, will mean much more to us than the likes of Staubitz, especially come playoff time. BUT, T.M. needs to get him in now to get him in play form with the big club. Cannot bring him up he week the playoffs start and expect him to be solid on the 3rd or 4th, wherever he will be used. Demers, can and will help us quite a bit on the P.P. Plus, if the likes of Wallin or Huskins are really getting run over and around and really really stink out the house like is most likely expected, especially when we face a team with good speed (Hawks, Canucks, Wings, L.A., Phoenix-boy that's close to all) then, we can stick in Demers whom can skate with our opponents.

Marleau-JT-Heater
Manny-Pavs-Seto
Clowe-Nichol-Ort
The best line in the AHL, all called up as one

And the defense I don't really care about. Although I think I'd rather see Leach than Huskins...

Obviously I'm sort of kidding, but hey, if that bad ass AHL line can come even close to producing in the NHL, maybe they would be more effective than our current 4th line...

Not sure why so many people want to break up Marleau and Thornton, they have been tearing it up all year.

Marleau - Thornton - Heatley
McGinn - Pavelski - Setoguchi
Clowe - Malhotra - Mitchell
Staubitz - Nichol - Ortmeyer

Boyle - Vlasic
Blake - Murray
Wallin - Demers
Huskins/Leach

Nabokov

I agree with most of you regarding lines, what I don't understand why is Demers at
least not practicing with our team down the stretch run, so he keeps the pace with
boys????????

because he still costs money until the very last day of the regular season, as soon as the playoffs start, the rosters expand and no more salary cap.

It's possible they feel there is more value in him playing in games while evaluating Leach/Wallin than having him practice up here and sit in the press box.

Also the money thing.

Only Sharks fans have a "playoff line" thread at the beginning of March. Shows how much we love the regular season.

The regular season is all but a formality at this point.

Small thought about giving Heatley space. He has done fairly well when combined with Seto for stretches. I think that is why TM is playing the two of them with Couture because their chemistry makes it easier for the third guy.

Ditto. These lines are the best constructed ones. The first line provides a huge scoring threat and punch. The second line has two bonafide scoring threats, and third can also score when given the opportunity. The fourth line is three certified pesky scrappers that will remind the opponent that Marleau-Thornton-Healtey are just right behind them. The defensemen are paired well too. This is a good set up...

First: I like when the scoring i spread out, this line should only be used if they're down in the 2nd INT.

Second: I absolutely hate the Blake-Murray pairing. It makes me want to shoot myself every time I see them on the ice. THey are so unbelievably slow, teams like Chicago are going to skate right through them.

I'm going to reiterate what I've been saying for a while: I'd like to see Manny Malhotra on the point on the powerplay. Also, it occurred to me that for a shorthanded situation, we might have a small advantage if we set up Manny behind the center, so that if the face off is won, he can use that shot to either bank it around and out, or up the middle of there's space. The only problem with that is that he would not be able to take the draw.

I'm more than comfortable with both of them playing in the playoffs.

Agree totally. Both in the A and showing more and more confidence in the big league as every game goes on AND, with the knowledge that T.M. isn't planning to "surprisingly" drop him to the A again.

Just some differences;

Couture - JT - Heat
Patty- Pavs - Seto
Clowe - Manny - McGinn
Ortmeyer - Nichol - Mitchell

To me, I think this would be an awesome and ideal starting lineup up front. Speed spread out and a very, very solid checking 4th line (Staubitz will not be needed come playoffs....definitely not).


Boyle-Murray
Vlasic-Wallin
Blake-Huskins/Demers

Idealy, this would be a 'good' lineup, espceially if we could include Demers. In no way can we have Wallin paired with Huskins. We'd be toast, especially against the likes of pretty much any team we'll face off against as the West is so strong and with much more speed than as compared to the East. It's already going to be tough sledding with Blake and Wallin or Huskins. Adding Demers will add some much needed youth and speed back there as the tempo will pick up so much next month.

Not a fan of the Beggar line. Loading the top 3 players on one line when there is 1 puck, and 2 scorers .... allowing for any other team to put their best defenders out (they can even be slow as long as their big defenders) makes no sense to me. Its just too easy to defense the team.

I think we are seeing the major call ups, though I thought Ferriero would have been in the mix personally and still might go in for Ortmeyer at some point in the playoffs. Couture has been a consistent call up and been better each time. I see him slotted for 3rd line duty in the playoffs. Staubitz will sit and we end up with a smokin fast 4th energy line.

Demers is the other one that has earned his call up and I expect to see him play at some point, and I have him over Huskins ... though I suspect he is out and Huskins in when the playoffs start. Leach is the guy who will be least seen, if at all on defense. Depends on health and injury.

Dany Heatley - Joe Thornton - Devin Setoguchi
Patrick Marleau - Joe Pavelski - Ryane Clowe
Manny Malhotra - Logan Couture - Jed Ortmeyer
Jamie McGinn - Scott Nichol - Torrey Mitchell

Boyle-Murray
Blake-Vlasic
Wallin-Demers

Nabokov (lets hope he can make it through healthy because Greiss is clearly not ready for a playoff run.)
