I like it.

But I'd rotate Pyatt / Moen depending on the team we're playing against... Against bigger teams, insert Moen... faster, insert Pyatt.

Martin won't ever scratch his man crush Travis Moen.

Desharnais is not at center. Pyatt is in a NHL line-up. You miss toughness, you miss Moen

Awful line-up

I would change Pyatt for Moen.
I would keep DD in center.
And I would try to use the rest of the salary cap to get a good size wing for DD and put Eller center in Hamilton for the rest of the season. He needs more ice time and he doesn't seem to be a wing.

And now, what's wrong with this line-up ?

Cammalleri - Plekanec - Kostitsyn
Pacioretty - Gomez - Gionta
Pouliot - Desharnais - Darche
Moen - Halpern - White

Moen, tough? Seems you look at the name on the jersey instead of the player on the ice. In theory, he's supposed to be toughness. In reality, he brings nothing. He makes as many turnovers/mistakes as Kostitsyn or Pouliot in the defensive zone, but he gets a free pass because he's JM's pet. I swear if you make him wear a different jersey during a game, many fans would be saying "Who the heck is that useless player on the ice? He's a soft as butter."

Out of all the players in our lineup since day 1, I can't for the life of me understand the love JM has for this guy.

I know I'll be flamed, but :

1- More size and toughness. Not a lot, not everywhere in the lineup, but still...
2- Andrei Markov on D.

Halpern is a good PKer and out best faceoff taker. I think he stays in.

Yes, I know. Are we a better team with Eller in ? I don't think so. He loses all his face-offs, can't produce offensively and he is not good defensively

What is common element is missing with each player in this list:
Koivu
Ribiero
Plekanec
Gomez
Desharnais
etc...

That's right, a Center with some size.

So why would you want to convert the ONLY skilled center the Habs have ever had in their system with any kind of size, to the wing. Or bury him in the AHL.

DD may be a great player (not that I agree at the NHL level) but adding him and subtracting Eller only does 1 thing, continue the futility at Center. It's like we want to on the losing end to the Philly's/Boston/Toronto'e of this league....

Take the names off the jerseys and do the equation again. Check out if you have 4 small centers on your roster.

Moen, Pyatt and Halpern MUST spend sometimes in the press box

I have no problem with that.

Pyatt has a minus game, pressbox.
Moen lets the team get pushed around, does not show any edge...pressbox.
Halpern loses important faceoffs.... pressbox.

I do not see why confirmed non-"hope for the future" bottom six guys should not be used this way.

i think halpern's faceoff skill is something we can't afford to shelf for any old reason. But the other two, i agree with you.

Add darche to this list.

DD looked extremely shorter than everyone else against Atlanta, he has no business on our roster. If it weren't for Gionta, Cammalleri and Gomez, we could keep him, but he is just reinforcing the fact that we have no size. I'd trade him for a younger, stronger center, with a bit less offensive upside. First, give him a chance, but we are small enough as it is, don't add a guy that is 5'7.

Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta
Pouliot-Desharnais-Kostitsyn
