    What is he going to do after he is fired this year? Where will he wear his fancy vests? Who will face the brunt of his whining when he doesn't have any officials around?

    Burning questions.

    How did Crosby get to Italy? In a suitcase? :dunno:
     
  8. Put Staal and Spezza on the team. You don't need defensive minded players when you lose 2-0.

    Swap draper and bertuzzi to form a pure defensive line to set the tone.

    tuzzi - sakic - iggy
    gagne - thornton - nash
    smyth - draper - doan
    lecavalier - richards - heatley
    st louis rotating in on the 4th line now and then.

    I expect to see
    Bert - Sakic - Iggy
    Gagne - Thortnon - Nash
    Heatley - Lecavalier - St. Louis
    Smyth - Richards - Draper
    Doan
    as the lines for tomorrow.

    I'd go with these lines:

    Heatley - Sakic - Iginla
    Gagne - Thornton - Bertuzzi
    Nash - Richards - Lecavalier
    Smyth - Draper - St. Louis
    Doan

    Of course, in a perfect world I'd somehow get Draper and Doan to fake an injury and go with:

    Gagne - Sakic - Iginla
    Nash - Thornton - Staal
    Heatley - Spezza - Richards
    Bertuzzi - Lecavalier - St. Louis
    Smyth

    Why not try something that has worked before ?

    Nash - Sakic - Iginla
    Doan - Thornton - Draper
    Gagne - Richards - St. Louis
    Smyth - Lecavalier - Heatley

    Bertuzzi sucks. No need to put him there...

    he's been one of our best players. **** sakes, do some of you even watch any of the games?

    this coming from the same person who put draper on right wing, and doan on the left side of the second line. perhaps i should have known better than to waste my time with such a well-read poster.

    1.) I didn't mean that these are strictly the No. 1, No 2. lines...and maybe you noticed that these were the WC04-lines...

    2.) Yes, I watched today's game against Switzerland. And what did Bertuzzi do ? Taking dumb penalties, putting his foot in the crease etc.

    oh ok


    yeah, then i guess you guys are right. bertuzzi sucks. his 7ob was never to be in front of the net in the first place, people like it better when he's a perimeter player.

    i'm honestly more mad reading some of these comments than i was after watching the game.

    Bertuzzi doesn't suck, he's just a moron. There's a difference.

    My lines:
    Bertuzzi - Sakic - Nash
    Gagne - Thornton - Iginla
    Richards - Lecavalier - Heatley
    Smyth - Draper - Doan
    St-Louis on da bench dere

    This has to do with the defense since both Prongs and Blake are playing injured. How do you suppose Team Canada would have faired if both Prongs and Blake had to withdraw due to injury? The reason I ask is Quinn seems to only trust these 2 as they're playing a lot.

    Bert-Thornton-Nash

    That would be a pretty physical line.

    What Canada needs is an energy line. Draper is useless on the first line. He can't create offence and he doesn't fit that role. I would have Doan Draper and Smyth as a fourth line.

    Amen to Nash-Thornton-Bert line. They were the only trio playing with any emotion. Anyone else notice how they almost scored 3 goals? Actually i cant remember if it was joe and nash on for the first canada goal when bert was in the crease, but the other 2 (nashs "non-goal" and thorntons shot that sat on the goal line) were the work of that line. Also they were just monsters and completely dominated down low.

    After looking thorugh the lines that people have talked about I came up with this:

    Gagne - Sakic - Iginla
    Bert - Thornton - Doan
    Nash- Richards - St. Louis
    Smyth - Lecavalier - Heatley


    I would like to see Spezza instead of St. Louis but thats just me.

    That line would be unstopable, but maybe a waste of resourses. Bert should learn a few things from Thornton. I think I like Bert better with a playmaker like Sakic so that he'll concentrate on going to the net instead of trying to set up the play at the blueline. Finish that line off with Iginla, wow. Great combination of Scoring, playmaking, and hard work
