Who's out when Halpern is back?

So, who do you think will be seating out when Halpern is ready to get back in?

I would sit Pouliot, altough, with him and DD, if they turn the switch to on and give the Habs some depth scoring, it would be great! But I don't believe in it and he's a turnover machine.

Definitely Pouliot, at least when Desharnais isn't producing points he can play on the PK.

Its gotta be pouliot.

White is bringing the physical and energy dimesnion

With pyatt, if the puck is on his side in the defensive zone, you know its coming out

I'm not sure what pouliot brings right now other than making me nervous.

Has to be Pouliot, if only by elimination. Pyatt is too sound defensively and White adds some grit.

Pouliot has the ability to be an X-Factor out there, but not the mental makeup. I've always supported him, and I'm still holding out hope that one day he'll get it into his mind he CAN be good all the time and play that way.

Problem with Pouliot of late is too much X, not enough factor. It's too bad too because he has all the tools to thrive in this series but doesn't use them or at least as well as he can. I agree, I'm holding out, but at this point I'm not holding my breath.

Pouliot until he learns how to stay on his skates and not his knees

I wouldn't put him back in unless someone gets hurt or someone has a really bad game.

Halpern is slow and not needed yet. He is decent depth to have, let him rest his injury that he keeps trying to come back from.

Pouliot is still a threat to score on the bottom lines and from time to time has good spurts. Yes he is very inconsistent but is still more useful than Halpern at this point in the series.

Halpern is slow and fighting a nagging injury. We don't need this against the booins.

Of course AK could miss like you said and there is Halperns chance to return. otherwise I say he should keep resting and healing.

Pouliot is inconsistent and is bringing very little to the team at this point. At least Halpern can win faceoffs (a facet which we sorely need to improve upon).

last game:

Gomez 39%
Plekanec 38%
White 50%
Eller 50%
Desharnais 33%
Cammalleri 33%

don't fix what's not broken ...

Pouliot's not producing but opposing D know he's got speed and a great shot which keeps them back and on their heels more.

Slow up our bottom 6 too much and their d will try to open it up and pinch more

Pyatt and White have both proven that they have something the team needs, where as Pouliot hasn't. And at the rate Pouliot is scoring, Halpern makes up for that loss.

I hope it is Pouliot. He sucks and he falls more than he touches the puck in a game.

Pouliot is like mentaly crumbling before our eyes right now. I've never seen a guy fall so low, he's completly lost. And it risk bringing DD down with him. But I wish someone would set right back on track, maybe a coach, someone in management. Someone that could find what's wrong about his game and fix it. I think he's like the Scarecrow in the Wizard of OZ and he should work toward being more like the Thin Man. Less being all over the place(like he takes 10 decisions at the same time) and focus on doing one thing and one thing only. Like a robot. That's what Max Pac was doing so well, he is about Pouliot's size but for him he's going one way and one way only- that was the problem when he kept getting hit all the time because he was too focused on doing his thing. I wish someone would fix his game like they fixed Max Pac's game, find his problem and set him back on track.

definitely Pouliot, he brings nothing right now.

Put Halpern on the right wing and move Moen or Pyatt on the LW with DD and White.

Halern on one leg would be bettre than Pools right now because he could be useful for important defensive zone faceoffs.

Sorry bro but halpern isnt CRAZY slow

brings decent face off %, and should the center on his line get chased out, he can stand in and take the face off, ANd kills penalties

all this > what pouliot is bringing to the team right now...

edit : granted, halpern didnt look GREAT on the line with pleks and cammy, but thats the point, he was in a top 6 role, put him back in bottom 6 role and he will help us alot more, its pouliot that would benefit more from a top 6 spot but thats just not going to happen, so why not stick a bottom 6 player in a bottom 6 spot instead of a potential top 6 winger who's struggling
