Line changes at practice today

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

If Halpern starts on the line before Pouliot, JM is dumber then I gave him credit for.
God I hate JM.......He's such a bad bad coach!

Kostitsyn is dead on a 4th line. You think he's been bad watch him on a forth line. That's also a great way to show case him????

I would go with the following:

Pacioretty-Gomez-Gionta
Cammalleri-Plekanec- Pouliot
Kostitsyn-Desharnais-White
Pyatt - Haplern - Moen

Send Eller to Hamilton and allow him to develop the same was Pacioretty did. For **** sakes Eller is only 21 and has the same tools and drive as Pacioretty did. Let him develop!

To me, that's JM saying "get me a second line winger and AK is done." Hopefully I am right.

After watching yesterdays game, I don't care if Martin picks the line up out of a hat. That was brutal, so I have no problem with him messing around with the line combos.

This has to be Martin just trying to shake things up. No way he leaves this line together for any length of time.

Any way you shake it out though, it's just bizarre.

Can he stop ****ing around and just put Kostitsyn with Cammalleri and Plekanec. I'm ****ing tired of seeing a grinder in the top 6 all the ****ing time and then hearing Martin complain that scoring is a problem.

Stop with the Moen, Pyatt, Halpern ******** for **** sakes. It's three games in a row Kostitsyn sets up Moen and he fails to score one on one with the goaltender.

Why do always the good players get injured, why can't these scrubs get hurt sometimes.

Eller should be in Hamilton playing 1st line minutes, I agree.

Kostitsyn-Eller-Moen is already a proven failure. Other than that, it's not terrible. Would definitely rather ATM than Jeff HalpernTM though

At first I was like......then I was like...

Or maybe Halpern is a placeholder for something bigger. Dominoes.

WTF are you blabbing about, seriously? Gomez has probably been our best forward on this embarrassment of a road trip. Enough with the hating!

I really don' get it. WTF is Martin thinking. Kosty was probably our most dangerous foward for the last 3 games, setting up Moen and making great dekes. That is so uncalled for.

It is me or when Martin makes a line, he thinks more how well the line would be defensively more than how good offensively it will be?

Halpern with Plek and Cammy?? Seriously? If he don't want AK there, at least put Pouliot or even Desharnais.

I definitely agree with this assessment, but don't even bother trying to convince anyone of it.

It took Martin almost 60 games to make Pouliot into a RW after having Moen playing approximately 30 in the top 6. I wouldn't say he "thinks", at this point.

Good to see what JM thinks of AK. He was one of the best players on the ice the last 3 or 4 games and is rewarded by being demoted to the 4th line.

Can we shop JM before we even think about shopping AK. This coach is a complete moron.

As much as I think Andrei should go...he is useless on the 4th line. Top 6 or bust.

Put him with pleks and Cam.

Halpern will be off that line by the middle of the second, especially if we're down.

I agree with the first part. He's not a moron, he's just stubborn, when he doesn't like a player, it's done.

He has looked much more involved. Encouraged by his performance in the last two games.

Halpern on the 2nd line? Why not try andrei back there with Pleks and Cammy again?

It's not like that line didn't have success before and it's not like Andrei played a horrid game last night.....

True.

But at least, he has finally realize that AK and Gomez together is not working. It took 6 loss in 7 games.

I thought we got rid of that when Carbo was fired.

Either way, it's detrimental to the team, I'm getting tired of him already. We shouldn't be in the business of giving young, talented players away for nothing. I'm waiting for PG to get burnt bad. AK will be a goal scorer for another team. I have no doubts sbout it.
