while I agree that Parent needs to sit, I dont agree that swapping out JVR for Carcillo is a perfect move. What do you do if Carcillo crosschecks Kane out of frustration in a tie game late and they score?
I realize it is a fine line in doing something like this. You just hope that Carcillo can walk that fine line and doesnt cross the line into doing something stupid.
I do agree you cannot sit Asham. He has been fantastic.
? Carcillo has been very disciplined the past few series.
We'll need Lappy tonight. He was out of his element in game one with no penalties to kill. Our even strength number are good with Carcillo in the line up. JVR needs a mental break. I'll trust Lavy here.
Did Lappy play? Oh yeah, and he was horrible. He's not right. He can't skate, doesn't hit, fumbles the puck. Sit him out, put JVR back in and let Carcillo play with Richards.
We need to get Richards and Carter going, let's let Briere and Leino help them - we can always reunite that line if we need to:
Gagne-Richards-Leino - works as a PP unit, why not at FS?
Hartnell-Carter-Briere - worked all year
