    You played for the Philadelphia Flyers in the 1970s?

    Did I miss something? When did the Hoff-Pag-Stone line have a ton of chemistry?

    The Stone-Brass-Smith line was amazing for a healthy part of the year why wouldn't we go back to that?

    And is the Stalberg-Brass-Burrows line actually good? or are they just saying that so they can bury Brass

    I liked it. It seemed Brassard took charge a lot more since he was clearly the most skilled of the three. I find he often defers too much when playing with Stone or Hoffman. I also found he had a bit more jump playing with those two north-south meat and potatoes guys. He also seems to have some natural chemistry with Burrows.

    Burrows-Brassard-Ryan
    Hoffman-Pageau-Pyatt
    Stalberg-Smith-Wingles

    Well, the fans got (pretty much) the forward lines they wanted!

    Let's GO!

    Wow I friggin love it. Wouldn't change a thing. Seeing these lines has me really excited. Adding in McArthur to our post deadline team really makes us a deep team.

    There's no elite game breakers up front, but this team is very solidly built group of forwards. No hesitation at all to roll 4 lines all game long.

    I would try:

    MacArthur - Turris - Ryan
    Smith - Kelly - Stone
    Hoffman - Pageau - Pyatt
    Stalberg - Brassard - Burrows

    Methot - Karlsson - Claesson in, if Methot can't go
    Phaneuf - Ceci
    Boroweicki - Harpur

    PK 1 - Pageau, Pyatt, Phaneuf, Ceci
    PK 2 - Kelly, Smith, Boroweicki, Harpur
    Pk 3 - Burrows, Stalberg, Methot, Karlsson

    PP - Hoffman, Turris, Stone, Phaneuf, Karlsson
    PP - MacArthur, Brassard, Ryan, Harpur, Ceci

    Boro - Wideman pairing when Claesson and Harpur have been better is just mind boggling.

    Harpur offers the "toughness" aspect and is a better hockey player than Boro.
    Claesson isn't as fast, but moves the puck just as well and plays better D than Wideman.

    I like the forward lines though. Glad Kelly is on the pine.

    And why do we want the worst forward on the team centering our best winger?

    I agree. The lines seem to be made to optimize chemistry: MoToR line reunited, the Pageau-Stone duo that seemed to click the last couple of games (and last year), Brassard back with Burrows, Kelly finally out!

    Good question. Kelly is no more than a 4th line C and should be nowhere near Stone in the lineup

    There are not many people who agree Boro is an effective NHL player. I can count on one hand how many plays he has made this year that led to a prime scoring chance vs taking untimely penalties or icing/giving away the puck on a nightly basis.

    I don't think there is a dman who played 40 games or more in the NHL who is worse night in and out than Boro. The majority of AHL defenders have more skill, they are just missing consistency and intensity.

    There is a need for someone like Boro on the team. But he should not be playing more than 10-12 minutes a game as a #7 dman. He is comparable to Phillips in his last season. The bad simply outweighs the good most nights.

    Ottawa has put too much weight on slow players like boro/neil/kelly. We would win more games with them out of the lineup.

    Definitely like the lines. Our bottom 6 look great.

    Let's kick some Bruins Butts

    I really feel like Dzingel offers more than Wingels. I definitely think White dos, but we all know he isn't going to play unless there's an injury.

    I don't really know how to rate Wingels considering he's played with Kelly his entire tenure with Ottawa.

    Depends what you are looking for out of that 4th line RW spot.
    Dzingel has more game breaker potential with his speed. His speed also opens the ice up.
    IMO Wingels is harder to play against, better in our end, and is effective on the PK.

    It's the 12th forward spot in the lineup.

    Dzingel seems to have lost a step and also doesnt look confident. He will get his chance again but we need the physicality with Wingels

    Exactly! Wingels has played a lot of playoff hockey > Dzingel. Maybe I'd Dzingel played pi $$ed off it would be different.

    A couple months ago I was imagining our lineup with Mac with no hopes that he could come back to play ever again, nevermind this year...

    and this morning I woke up and saw this. I'm jacked up about this lineup.
