    Benning on the second pairing still... May wonders never cease.

    That bottom 6 is frightfully bad.

    Benning has been below average at best for the last calender year. Having him in the top 4 is a terrible idea.

    McLellan: 'Do I put Russell at 2RD? Or do I keep Benning there? Can I play Larsson 40 minutes per game? What do you mean he has a sore back?"

    doubt it works

    It was a terrible last year and it's a terrible idea this year. How is he still our second best RHD?

    I just don't quite understand why you would mess around with lines in practice, after 1 game, and then go back to basically the same lineup? To screw with people? Send a message?

    Honestly if you replaced him with Bear I think it's a better pairing. Bear is probably equal defensively right now but much better offensively at least.

    Cause why practice with the lines you want to play with? Just try it in game time when you have only played once this year, can't hurt right?

    I'd prefer Bear and Bouchard not play in the same game if possible but I agree with your overall sentiment.

    That defense makes my eyes water.

    I'd say Strome, or Benning

    probably a shot at Brodziak too

    I mean if you wanted to ice the best lineup, it would have Bear and Bouchard in it. It's not ideal but they are both better than Garrison and Benning.

    We know it’s not directed at Caggiula or Benning. Could be Kassian.

    That third line is going to be super easy to play against. Taking Khaira off it and replacing him with Caggiula kills their cycle game and makes them another need to score on rush line.

    Anyway, Bruins run us out of the building.
