    I really want this to happen, Girgs on Larssons wing is when things really started to happen, both in Roch and Traverse!

    I am not so sure it will happen (yet) though. Is Grigs really sitting? McCormick and Scott?

    Based on today's practice lines: Grigorenko is scratched, Scott is playing, one of McCormick or Porter will be scratched and the other will center the 4th line. I don't see why McCormick would play for Porter when Scott's playing anyhow. I'm just glad to see Larsson will get a legit chance again, hopefully this time it lasts throughout the game.

    AnOther idiotic, inexplicably stupid, dumb, nonsensical, aggravating, illogical roster decision. How has Porter played his way into the press box?

    WHAT IS HAPPENING???

    Are we at the point yet where opponents know we are an easy schedule break and start their backup goalie?

    If CMac plays, change the loss to 4-1.

    I would try these lines
    Girg/Folingo-Coho-Vanek
    Ennis-Grig-girg/Foligno
    Ott-Larsson-Flynn-shutdown
    stafford-Porter-kaleta

    That's the best lineup we can put out right now

    "Kumpeet levul. Priteckt thuh puck. Play hahcki hahrrd... Lowur bhati. Itsuh prahsus (sips abnormally small bottle of Dasani loudly)"

    Did he even take a sip? Did he sip it? Is he even thirsty? Or is that a nervous tick?

    That's my phonetic RonRol impresh, btw.

    So how do I know that Larsson is not just holding Grigorenkos spot while Grigorenko fills in for Hodgson on the first line? How much can really be read from the training lines on an off-day? I am new to all this hockey kremlinology, please help me!

    Win. 5-4

    Hodgson will go 1/19 at faceoffs, be a -3 and get credit for a goal Vanek bounces off his leg.

    Grigorenko's two best games in the pre-season were against Columbus.
    Yeah, scratch him!

    Let the kids play, let them make their mistakes together and let them learn from it. No need to sit Grigorenko. Yes gift him a roster spot, gift him ice time. this whole "earning" ice time is stuff you do in juniors, but not in the big leagues.

    sit Stafford or Ennis to send a message.
