    Really like those forward lines. For the D, I can't say I've loved what I've seen from Oduya so far. When we signed him, we kinda just got whats left of him. He seems slow (gets beat in his own zone), has little offensive ability and takes a lot of penalties.

    That lineup might work to make twonoffensive lines and 2 defensive lines. Pyatt is really a 4th liner, and Dzingle is a third liner being a shot at the top 6. I think the team needs a top 6 winger, such as LVK Neal at the TD.

    I always thought Claessen looks very composed. Quick and does the right play most of the time.

    Oduya is decent but against top lines hes a step behind. Move Claessen up with Karl and make the sweedish meatball duo!

    When Ryan is back that Hoffman - Duchene - Ryan idea could be pretty solid.. Leaves a Brassard - Stone duo looking for the next trade piece as a strong LW. A Landeskog, Neal type of attitude would cost us a quality player (Ceci, Phaneuf from the back end and a pick/Paul I'd think, but quality is there) which we should consider. Add Oduya if we can. The trickle down effect would slot the other players into a solid line up
    Hoffman - Duchene - Ryan
    Landeskog/Neal - Brassard - Stone
    Dzingel - Pageau/White - White/Pageau
    DiDomenico - Thompson - Pyatt
    Burrows

    Claesson - Karlsson
    Chabot - Phaneuf/Ceci
    Harpur/Borowiecki - Jaros/Wideman
    Borowiecki/Oduya

    It could work

    Hoffman - Duchene - Ryan
    Smith - Brasssard - Stone
    Burrows - Pageau - Dzingel
    Pyatt - Thompson

    Claesson/Oduya - Karlsson
    PhanuefOduya - Ceci
    Harpur/Oduya - Wideman

    this should be our consistent line up

    Is Ryan coming back early from injury or is this the expected time table for his return?

    I know he takes a lot of heat around here, but I'm glad to see that whatever it was that was keeping him out of the lineup wasn't so serious.

    If we could find a legitimate 2nd line LW for cheap at the deadline, that's a hell of a deep lineup, IMO. A real 2nd line LW pushes both Burrows and Dzingel down to the bottom-6 where they belong, but both are very good options as bottom-6 guys.

    Legit 1st line, elite 2nd line, and two bottom lines that can absolutely shut down opponent's top lines as well as provide tertiary scoring (Pageau DiDo & Dzingel specifically)

    A personal health issue that didn't take him out of the lineup long term that no one wants to talk about?

    It was probably something super embarrassing like hemorrhoids or a boil on his groin area that he had to get removed.

    Clearly the odds were that it was something like you mentioned, but there's always the chance it could have been more serious. I mean, Phil Kessel was diagnosed with cancer at 19 years old. Anything is possible.

    If you listen to vouchers pre and post game he 100% thinks Smith is a top 6 forward. The same sack Smith who has 1 goal in his last 40 regular season games

    Let's hope Bobby has time to hide his hands in his back for the rest of the season when a shot comes his way
    Sad to see Harpur go down, he played well last weekend
    I would go back to Stone-Brass-Ryan when he comes back
    They were lethal together before Bobby's injury

    Ryan-Brassard-Stone
    Hoffman-Duchene-White
    Smith-Pageau-Dzingel
    Pyatt-Thompson-Burrows

    Swap Hoffman and Ryan as needed.

    Until Smith is back:

    Ryan-Brassard-Stone
    Hoffman-Duchene-White
    Dzingel-Pageau-DiDo
    Pyatt-Thompson-Burrows

    A bit early to be writing White into the top 6, no?

    I agree with that potential top6. Maybe later this year. After Christmas let say.

    Right now.. Yes ! By the end of the year, i don't know since the player he would be playing with are very good player. It's not like he would need to carry the line. White is probably never going to ba a driver of a line, but if he goes in front of the net, screen, play for rebound, he might succeed. That's his game anyway. That's what he is good at. Him and Duchene are good gritty player along the board.

    I really can see him fit well with Duchene and Hoffman. Like I said, not now. But maybe after Christmas it become a good idea if White continue his good play.

    White will come up, play a couple games, and he'll be up in the top 6 in no time.

    That's my opinion of course but the way Boucher talks about him, and the way he played him in pre-season makes me believe that he will get a legitimate shot when he gets called up.

    Ike Newgates has said, Duchene and White have complimentary style. Great all around players and White plays like a vet.

    Dido is surprisingly doing fine so far. I would keep him in the lineup and keep White in the AHL. A Hoffman - Duchene - Dido line could be interesting.

    Hope you guys are right. I like White, and would be thrilled if it went that way. I just expect Dzingel to be there, and White to line up on the third with Pageau.

    Yeah I like him alot in the top 6, he has the hockey sense and skill to play with those players. Id like to see these lines come Thursday.

    Ryan Brassard Stone
    Hoffman Duchene Didomenico
    Dzingel Pageau Pyatt
    Paul Thompson Burrows

    I think eventually id like to see White playing in the top 9 but more seasoning in the AHL wont hurt anyone. It gives the team options.
