    Personally I believe if he had a better, more creative centre who could feed him the puck more he would put up 80 points (in a full healthy season)

    Let him play with Eller and Galchenyuk. Put Gallagher with Plekanec and Bourque.

    Which would leave Gionta-Desharnais-Briere. That line would be horrific.

    No icetime for them. I don't give a ****. Desharnais is horrible, he really needs to go. Hopefully, one of the 17 scouts tonight at the game will be impressed by his play.

    Eller and Gallagher work good together.

    I say make:

    Pacioretty-Briere/Galchenyuk-Galchenyuk/Briere
    Gionta-Eller-Gallagher
    Desharnais-Plekanec-Bourque

    Not bad. But do you really want Desharnais facing top lines every game? Unless Eller's line get the tough defensive assignments.

    Therein needs to make some changes. There is no chemistry between Briere and Pacioretty. The Pleks line looks lost as well.

    Put Pacioretty with Pleks and Bourque with DD and Briere

    Y not? Plekanec and Bourque are two capable players.

    The idea is to get DD out of his comfort zone. He can do better than this.

    I guess we have nothing to lose, he can't be worst than he is now anyway.

    Your lines are the most balanced I've seen yet, I hope Therrien is gonna at least try them.

    Depends on the center. Could be a ppg player if not more with Crosby.

    60 - 70 points with a legit #1 center IMO.

    Leave Eller, Gallagher and Galchenyuk together.

    Put pacs, pleks and rene together
     
  15. when gionta is gone...and briere is gone...and markov is making 3 million to play bottom line minutes and PP and bourque is on the third line with ryan oreily and mike mccarron and we have acquired a max talbot for the bottom line between prust and white, and the EGG line has completely hatched and plekanec has patches and a big mean lucic type sob on his right wing and tinordi and beaulieu are full developed and we've acquired a solid number 2 like a brent seabrook type...we will be contenders

    Not much cuz from what I heard here, he only have great chemistry with DD and DD alone. We should pair them together until the end of time. MaxPac is nothing with DD.

    Like this idea. As much as DD needs Patches to get going, it's starting to get to the point where DD is just dragging down our best forward. Pleks and Pacioretty would be awesome, especially when you add Gionta it would just be such a fast line.

    Pacioretty - Eller - Briere/Gallagher:amazed:
    Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Gallagher/Briere:amazed:

    A situation which is entirely Bergevin's fault. We don't have mobility in our top6 because of the buttload of smurfs and exploitation-only players.

    Desharnais needs to play wing and Patches needs to play with either Eller or Pleks.

    Pacioretty - Plekanec - Gionta/Briere
    Bourque - Desharnais - Prust
    Moen - Bournival - White

    Rotate the third wheels (DD, Gionta, Briere) based on performance. It's time we start playing our future.

    Gionta-Eller-Bourque
    Moen-White-Prust
    Parros (when healthy)

    DD sits in the press box.

    If things get bad, and you really want to switch things up. Might not be the best combos, but could be an interesting chemistry experiment against a struggling team. I know the EGG line is awesome, but if we're spiraling out of control we really have no choice but to break them up.
