I can't find a "good" lineup that has both of them in it though, especially because I don't want to move Kennedy away from Roy/Vanek.

Barring injuries, I think the best we can do is get one in, and right now I'm leaning towards Gerbe on the 3rd line with Goose/Grier.

That was an EASY game for Miller.

Our offence has really come together lately. We're 9th in goals scored with 217.

I love Tim Kennedy, but he is a brutal interview. He must get nervous talking in front of the reporters and cameras.

Right now Gerbe makes that line dangerous. His ability to stop and start, finding his linemates, and general peskiness works well with the straight-ahead game of Gaustad and Grier. And he's being very responsible in his own zone -- there is a lot to like in that line.

He's certainly not as entertaining as Spacek was.

He also gives them another option on the PP. He sneaks into scoring areas very well. I think he could've had three goals tonight. It's good to see him perform well on a 3rd line; it certainly enhances his chance to make the team next season. I think he's moving towards disspelling the "top-6 or bust" tag.

he'll likely do what he should.

Hecht-Connolly-Pominville
Vanek-Roy-Kennedy
Gerbe(?)-Gaustad-Grier
Torres-Mair/Ellis-Kaleta

would be the ideal lineup. A solid forechecking 4th line is more important than a mediocre 4th scoring line. Waaay more important.
