    Campbell starting. Well what else is new. Nash is centering the 3rd line with Kerfoot and Mikheyev. Hyman is back with Matthews/Marner. Willy and Tavares will get Foligno. I don’t like the way our older/slower guys will play on the same line together.

    I kinda think spezza Simmonds and Thornton work well ish together. They play at the same speed and aren’t complete liabilities out there defensively.

    I hope they watched the Washington game, and are watching the Tampa game now. Fast and physical. No reason to think Montreal won't do the same. Time to not get pushed around.

    I think they’re ideal 4th liners. As a unit they’re slow, but responsible and you can get them a few extra minutes if any of them is feeling ten years younger that night by sprinkling PP and shifts with the top lines.

    Hutton is good depth, but to be honest not loving his game, has real trouble making good exit passes and processing the play. Defensively adequate as insurance.

    Is the thinking that Hyman needs to help drive the 2nd line?

    Folingo did seem pretty decent with Matthew's and Marner so far.

    I figure he was always just a depth d man incase of injury.

    Bogo, Sandin, or Dermott should play in front of him. Either way it's a nice problem to have.

    Glad Bogo is healthy. His big physical presence will be a welcome addition come playoffs. Based on Sandin's play and that he's taking reps on the top PP unit, I'd have to think it's Dermott's job that's in danger. Sandin-Bogosian is a nice looking third pairing. Allows the rookie to play a little bigger too. We've all seen he has a little bite to his game

    I'm still not liking the way the bottom 6 looks. The 4th line is too slow and the 3rd line is being promoted as a shut down line when Montreal is a pretty balanced line up and shuffle lines constantly.

    My thinking is that Foligno has looked good with Matthews and Marner, and hasn’t with Tavares and Nylander.

    Hyman looks good everywhere, we should put Foligno with the line he’s shown the most chemistry with

    I personally think the fourth line will be fine. Spezza and Simmonds really don't seem that slow to me in all honesty. They're not Mikheyev or Kerfoot..but slow? Bit of a stretch imo. Very veteran savvy guys who can turn up the heat. We all know what Simmonds can bring physically. Spezza has been a stud all year in his fourth line minutes (and they'll start with the puck alot with him on the draws). Thornton has quietly put up his points as he always has, and we've seen what he can bring to the table when he was terrorizing Ehlers...look for more of that from the big bodied 41yr old who's still chasing his first ever Stanley Cup.
    I do however agree the shutdown unit of Kerfoot-Nash-Mikheyev is likely much less effective against a team like Montreal, as it would be against a team like Edmonton. Can't wait for Thursday either way. GLG
