  1. We can't seem to get consistent offensive flow going. 2 offensive lines, the Begin line, and a useless line. We have one shift of decent offensive pressure, then a shift of nothing, then back again. We need 3 offensive lines... and the Flyers are a perfect candidate to do that against - they don't trap like Boston. Carbo should've done something about the Lapierre line for tonights game. He better do something about it for next game, I don't want to see Dandenault out there for the next game.

  2. I'm not as down on Grabovski as you guys are. He's young and he pouted once, but I don't think that calls for a 1-way ticket to Siberia. Dandenault sooked once this year too, and nobody called for his exile. I wouldn't mind seeing Grabovski play this series... I think we need some more creativity in the lineup. I think we played some of our best and most dominating hockey of the season down the stretch when we went with 3 offensive lines and I'd like to see that again.

    I was thinking the same thing as MMPL and DriveFor25 - I'm not impressed with the Lapierre line at all... I think both he and Dandenault could sit and bring in Grabovski and one of Latendresse/Ryder. You could leave Streit with them. Philly doesn't seem to play as tight and physical a game as the Bruins so I think that move could work.

    Higgins -Koivu -Kovalev

    A. Kost- Plex- S. Kost

    Lats/Ryder- Grab- Streit

    Begin - Smol - Kosto

    Flyers would have some difficulty covering those 3 offensive lines.

  3. Ottawa doesn't scare me at all neither. Don't see how they could be our "worst possible scenario". Just what InsaneHabs said... and now they're weaker than ever without Alfredsson and Fisher. Martin Lapointe on the 1st line and Shean Donovan on the 2nd line - what more could you ask for. Sens were a one line team before Alfie and Fisher went out - now they are very fragile. Throw in the crappy goaltending, shaky defense (thanks Commodore!) and I have no problem meeting them in the 1st round.

    Everyone wants to play Boston and I would have agreed a week or so ago - that is until Begin broke a bone in Marc Savard's back with that crosscheck. Because of that you just know that the Bruin goons (Chara and Reich) would be hellbent on headhunting our skill guys. We don't need that.

    Ottawa or Philly are the teams I want to play 1st round.

  4. I like the 3 offensive lines idea, always did... but I'm not sure how 2 snipers (Ryder and Latendresse) are going to work

    on the same line. Could be a defensive nightmare too. I wouldn't mind swapping Sergei K for Ryder... so you'd then have:

    - KoKoPlex line

    - Latendresse, Koivu, Sergei K (some more creativity, grit, speed, and defensive awareness with Sergei K here)

    - Ryder, Grabovski, Higgins

    To me, that looks a little more balanced out. As the game goes on, I'm hoping Carbo will see this and do it.

  5. As long as he wins games as JMMR said, I don't care. But personally, I don't really like it. I know he's a westerner, and he likes rodeo and country music, but he's playing in Montreal... not Calgary. I just figure he should show a little more respect for the Canadiens tradition. No rodeos in Montreal.

    What if Price was from Newfoundland? Would it be okay for him to picture of a codfish, or a fisherman, or a bottle of screech on his mask? It just doesn't fit.

    But hey, just keep winning Carey.
