    Boro was great against the Jets he broke up numerous rushes, it was Claesson & Wideman that got outmuscled & pushed around by a much bigger Jets team. I like Harpur though & think he will be fine if they call him up in a minor role.

    He did get a D-man, he traded Lazar & returned Jokipakka, maybe not exactly the D-man you had in mind though huh? :laugh:

    Wow, when he traded for Condon people were praising him, then he traded Dahlen & people hated him & then the team was doing well, second in the division & they liked him again & now the team has been losing & he is hated again. Tough life being a GM.

    This must be a joke? The Leafs are in a position to make the playoffs when nobody expected them to this yr, why would they fire two of the architects of this team? If anything it's possible that Lou could step down because of age but he still looks very healthy for his age & Shannahan will be there for a few yrs yet IMO.

    Not convinced Boucher has been that good, if you use Cameron as a baseline his team put up 85 points and he got fired.

    Now Boucher's team has 91, just a 6 point gain with 5 games remaining and the team fading fast.

    Considering he has had more experienced players with adds like Wingels, Stalberg, Burrows, Kelly and Condon, not so sure how good he has been?

    I do give him credit for the improved defensive play, reducing the goals against by 44, but the downside is his focus on D has cost the team 37 goals for.

    So I grant he has made some gains, but not nearly as big as what many think.

    You mean Heisenberg right? ;)

    It will be nice having Mr. White on this team.

    Everyone will be afraid of him.

    One of the most absurd, baseless things I've seen said in a long time, and that's saying something.

    These lines spread out the scoring, good defenisvely & the sandpaper.

    Stalberg - Turris - Stone - maybe Stone does for Stalberg what he did for Smith
    Hoffman - Brassard - Burrows - Hoffman has set up two of Burrow's goals
    Dzingel - White - Ryan - maybe White gives these two slumping forwards a boost
    Smith - Pageau - Pyatt - all three play well defensively together & are a shutdown line

    - Wingels - Kelly - Neil

    unless i missed something smith is out next game

    i would mix it up though, since white has the offensive instincts and he needs to be in a position to succeed

    white-turris-stone:stone should make life easier for white and our #1 C
    hoffman-brassard-ryan:hoffman gives this second line a chance
    burrows-pageau-pyatt:hopefully becomes our in your face annoying line
    dzingel-wingels-stalberg:speed and a stupid amount of letters

    Pageau should be the 2C. With Smith back each line has toughness and skill

    Hoffman - Turris - Stalberg
    Smith - Pageau - Stone
    Burrows - Brassard - Ryan
    Dzingel - White - Pyatt
    Wingels

    have to give white a chance to succeed, especially since none of our forwards are really putting up consistent production. I dont consider him a savior now or in the future but for a team that is having trouble scoring, we should give the new guy a real shot to see if he can help in that department instead of putting him with two guys who cant finish

    I hate cheering for a team whose managment is stupid.

    I'd literally trust some posters on HF more than Murray/Dorion to build a competitive team.

    Reunite HST and try to get those guys going

    Hoffman Turris Stone
    Dzingel Brassard Ryan
    Pyatt Pageau White
    Burrows Wingels Stalberg

    Smith is likely to miss a few more

    Boucher will likely limit White's icetime no matter where he slided in.

    He could C or play the 4th line and move Stalberg/Burrows or Wingels up.

    I actually agree but we traded for some veteran leadership that is not producing on the ice. I do like Stalberg, but the Burrows trade is a disaster. Dahlen is a scorer we have needed for years. Look at his record since the trade. Anyway, too late now.

    Would you put White as the 2C and drop Pageau to 3C and Brassard to 4C. Brass has earned 4C of late. White with Smith and Stone gives him a chance maybe? Bottom 6 would then be, for me
    Dzingel - Pageau - Pyatt
    Burrows - Brassard - Ryan

    white as a c isnt a bad idea but i think we give him that winger treatment like how most centers get to start in the league

    white-turris-stone
    hoffman-brassard-ryan
    burrows-pageau-pyatt
    dzingel-wingels-stalberg

    or

    Ryan-Turris-Stone
    Hoff-Brass-White
    Dzingel-Pageau-Burrows
    Stalberg-Wingels-Pyatt

    playing around with the lines those were two combos that i liked, although second one maybe a tad unrealistic since we are never separating pageau and pyatt

    Where ever he plays I expect no less than 4 goals in his first game, equaling Mathews debut and setting of a firestorm that will rage across the Internet - would White have won Rookie of the Year had he played a full season? Also, a group of Sens fans will call for the immediate dismissal of Dorion for not convincing the kid to forgo his last year at BC and join the Sens.

    Or...he'll play about 4:38 over 9 shifts, none of them in the 3rd period with the team down a goal and Boucher electing to double shift Burrows on account of intangibles.

    This is a good point.

    Expansion draft screws up a lot of planning this year.

    So we keep Methot then, we lose a top 4 D regardless.

    Personally I'm counting on this and hoping White plays himself onto the Islanders for JT (some +'s from the Sens obviously).

    Line combos this morning

    Not sure how I feel about Dzingel scratched while Wingels and Kelly are still in the lineup...

    I was hoping we'd play White with Turris and Stone.

    Me too. But i don't mind him playing the first game there. He could move up any time in the match.

    I really think White should be place in an offensive role. Then add the defensive responsability.
