Keith-Leddy
Hjalmarsson-Campbell
Cullimore-Campoli
Exelby , Connely and Lalonde are possible as well

Where's the STK line? Our most successful line all year? Now that we can have a 2nd line worth a damn I was expecting to see them come back.
They'll be together for all PP's, and quite honestly, the best way to beat these guys is to roll lines with them. These lines give us a chance at doing that. I liked seeing Sharp at center last game. The attack was a lot more consistent when it was spread out.

Such a shame that when Bolland FINALLY gets back, Seabs is out.

Yeah, I don't know what the Hawks would think about those guys stepping into the NHL in a playoff game, but based strictly on talent and upside for the game, I go with Lalonde. He had a very good year in the A and deserves the reward. To amp it up physically, you go with Exelby.

It sounds like Q might be intimidated by Kesler shutting our bug guns down and is trying to spread the talent around.

BTW - not sure if it was mentioned here anywhere, but Crawford didn't make the final 3 for Calder. Skinner, Couture and Grabner are the final 3.

I know I'll be alone on this thought - but I'd go with Turco tonight. Crawford isn't playing as well as he was a few weeks ago. This team is desparate and needs a spark.

Yeah I saw that

Tough break but it was a strong rookie class (Skinner should win rather easily)

Those guys were the choices of least resistance, so no surprises there.

Plenty of other good rookies this year that didn't get mentioned (Subban, Shattenkirk, etc.)

Skinner is a monster. How many points you think he'll put up at his orime?

Yeah throwing a goalie who hasn't played in forever into action in playoff game doesn't make sense

+ Craw gave up weak goals last game but overall has not been the problem this series

Now, you have a goon like Torres out there doing whatever he wants without on-ice repructions and a 50-50 shot at best of getting disciplined from the league, so he's just an animal on the loose out there. I expect someone to take a run at him, but the best payback is a win. Let's get up a few goals and take a charging penalty on him or someone else later on in the game.
And do it in the "kill zone" where anything goes, even if a player doesn't have the puck .... what a friggen joke this league has become.

I kind of wish Bolly was out tonight. Just last week he said he still had symptoms and his awareness was not there. I have a hard time believing he truly is 100% now. It's not worth ruining the guy's health/career over.

No way on Turco. Keenan isn't coaching this team anymore. Crawford brought us here; we just haven't been able to put the puck in the net this series. Then what do you do if we win 4-3 (which is about the only way Turco wins, well, it has to be vs. CBJ too). Seriously, cut the kid some slack. Turco is an average AHL goalie at best. I'll be surprised if he ever sees NHL ice again.

That is inaccurate of Keenan

He would have pulled Craw after a bad goal , Put in Turco then pulled Turco after a bad goal only to then name Turco the starter for the next game

Keenan really screwed around with his netminders heads

Yeah, Toivonen might have even got a period in under Keenan's watch.

Hasek was insane in the last game of the 92 SCF after Keenan pulled Belfour. It's too bad they traded him. It's not like we didn't know he could be really special.

I'm fine with Scott in. It really doesn't matter at this point. The series is long over. Maybe he can slap the taste outta Burrow's mouth.

Pretty hilarious. Crawford has like 2-3 meh periods after dragging us here kicking and screaming and people want to turn on him. I know its easier to blame crawford because this is his first full time run with the team, but Sharp/Toews/Hossa/Kane/Keith deserve the blame here. Ya know, the guys taking up ~27mil in cap space that are -2, -3, -3, 0, -4 respectively with 1 ES point combined.
