other way around. Hammer is needed to groom O'byrne. and Subbans game more closely resembles spacek (aside from the devious rushes)

I've heard Maxwell could make the team. Would he be an extra forward or on the wing with Eller?

That would be a mistake. He's a top 6-type forward, not a bottom 6 guy who should be expected to spark something on offense with 5 mins of ice-time a game and different linemates every night.

Maybe that means there's no room on the team for him with Gomez, Plekanec and Eller as offensive-type guys and Leblanc on the way but so be it.

But knowing this FO, they'll let him sit in the press box every night rather than improve in Hamilton.

You'd be opposed to an offensive 3rd line?

Pacioretty - Eller - Maxwell

Considering I'm a big advocate of the top two lines being offensive lines and the bottom two lines being shutdown/forechecking lines, then yes I'd be opposed to that because Maxwell isn't that type of player. My ideal bottom two lines to start the year are:

Moen - Eller - Lapierre
Boyd - White - Pyatt

A.Kost-Pleks-Cammy
Pouliot-Gomez-Gio
Pyatt-Eller-Lapierre
Moen-Boyd-White/Darche

Maxwell probably has to crack the team or get moved.

If Markov's back-

Markov-Spacek (Subban on PP)
Hamr-Subban/O'byrne
Gorges-Gill

Subban/O'Byrne

Picard's first in line for depth, Carle probably second. Hope Weber starts improving again.

Note these aren't necessarily my first choices (I'd rather have Spacek on the left, bigtime) but my guesses of how JM ends up using his roster.

And Eller fits that mold??? I think that we should put a pure sniper with Eller and Maxwell on the third and see that sniper score loads of goals. Eller and Maxwell are both good passers and are still able to put the puck in the net from time to time. I honestly think that Maxwell will become pretty good. Look at how long it took Latendresse to score and played much more than Maxwell and with better players. So far, Maxwell mostly played with guys like Lapierre, Darche, Moen, etc. Not players who are going to help you rack up points. As for the pure sniper, Kostitsyn would be the only real option seeing as Cammy won't be playing on a third line. I don't understand why people want to see Pacioretty make the team immediatly, he needs a bit more time in the AHL before coming up, unless he tears up the pre-season so much that such a feat was never seen before as he's too inconistent and playing him top line minutes can really help him.

It seems that the role of a grinding/tough 3rd line is a thing of the past.

1st line - top players (stars)

2nd and 3rd lines - secondary scoring

4th line - shutdown line.

That's not to say you can't have a grinder on the 2nd or 3rd line, just balancing out the offense.

The way I see it.

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Better be the year for Andrei, or he/we is/are ****ed.

Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot, Eller & Pacioretty for that top 6 spot. Has to be Pouliot, because I don't see him helping us elsewhere.

Pacioretty - Eller - Lapierre
Eller needs someone who can put the puck in the net (well, we hope Pacioretty can).

Moen - Boyd - Darche/Pyatt


Markov - Subban/O'Byrne
Give PK a shot with the best out there.

Hamrlik - Spacek
Honestly, I would move one of them.

Gorges - Gill
Fine pair.

Cammalleri - Plekanec - AK
Pouliot - Gomez - Gionta
Pyatt - Eller - Lapierre
Moen - Boyd - White
Darche

I think JM is so high on Pyatt that he will place him on the third line. Pyatt and Lapierre have good chemistry and create a llot of chances - maybe good for Eller to bury a few.

If Pouliot or Lapierre falter, Pacioretty will be the obvious choice.

I just can't see Maxwell in the lineup anymore. And White just has to make it - that last line could be a killer.

Why? We need scoring. We're one of the lowest scoring teams in the league. Do you expect the top two lines to produce 50 more goals this year? It won't happen.

We need scoring from our third line, ideally 45 goals. Something we have not had in years. Moen and Lapierre do not belong on that line. Boyd might, and we're still short a third scoring winger for that line...

In which case, How do you justify the system you propose above?

Top 2 lines are near locks to start off as:

Cammy-Pleks-AK
Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta

The question is how do we see the bottom 2 lines shaping out. I think it's fair to assume that Eller, Lapierre, Pyatt, Moen, and Boyd are all among the bottom 6. That leaves 1 spot, open to either darche or a young guy. I think the plan is to have Eller and Boyd as the centers, with Boyd centering a veteran checking line that Martin can trust, while Eller could be on a more offensive, younger line. Moen makes sense with Boyd, while Pyatt makes sense with Eller, and Laps could play on either line.

If Laps plays with Eller and Pyatt, I see Darche as the guy who makes it for that vet/checking line.


Pyatt-Eller-Lapierre
Moen-Boyd-Darche

If Laps plays with Boyd and Moen, I could see another prospect making the team to play with Eller.

Moen-Boyd-Laps
Pyatt-Eller-Pacioretty?/Palushaj?/Avstin?

It'll be interesting to follow.

With the addition of Halpern:

Cammalleri - Plekanec - AK
Eller - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Halpern - Boyd
Moen - Pyatt - Lapierre

AK can be replaced with Eller
Pouliot can be replaced by Pacioretty

Which gives us:

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Eller
Pacioretty - Gomez - Gionta
Moen - Halpern - Boyd
White - Pyatt - Lapierre

We can switch Lapierre and Boyd as needed.

for opening night that looks pretty damn good. Although depending on the night, I might have Boyd switched with Pyatt or Moen. I would rather Moen and Halpern be split up to help mentor the young guys.

We're gonna have to find offense on that third line without Markov tho. I don't like either Moen or Lapierre in that regard.

Eller with Moen and Lapierre? I didn't know we traded Halak for a plugger. Eller will be with two way players like Boyd, not fourth liners like Moen. It depends what Lapierre does before we pencil him onto the 3rd line.
