    It was an exciting home opener with that group, at least.

    I thought MLA started the season together, at least until Little went down 10 minutes into game 1.

    Nah Matthias was definitely on Little's line, I remember them being together for the first goal of the season.

    Wow, that's just such a bizarre line up in hindsight.

    Maurice was trying to do the balanced 3 offensive line approach but yeah some of his filler choices where odd.

    Thorburn started as a scratch with Stuart.
    3 scoring lines.
    Pavelec in the AHL.
    Lowry on 4th line.

    There were some positive signs at the start.

    With what we have now, it'd be great if Maurice kept the general idea he had from 2016 and went something along the lines of :

    Ehlers Scheifele Laine
    Connor Little Wheeler
    Perreault Petan Dano
    Copp Lowry Armia

    Have the "third" line be a sheltered scoring line, have CLA be your shutdown line.

    Frenchy and Dano can dig the puck out then play a skilled game with Petan. Or have Roslovic in that spot and Petan in the AHL. Whichever.

    After following all of the lineup suggestions the past few months, I believe this would be our optimal lineup:

    Mason
    Hellebuyck

    Morissey Byfuglien
    Enstrom Trouba
    Myers Kulikhov

    Connor Scheifele Wheeler
    Laine Little Ehlers
    Perreault Copp Armia
    Matthias Lowry Dano

    *Byfuglien should be better with less ice time/more rest and an even better Morrisey
    *Trouba should be very dominant and Enstrom will be stronger than most think
    *Myers and Kulikhov should be solid
    *Connor will be effective, and in a good spot with an even better Scheifs and solid Wheels.
    *The Little line should be dominant
    *The Copp line should be solid: Copp solid both ways/Armia a force offensively/Perreault solid
    *The Lowry line solid: Dano effective.

    *Roslovic will be very effective, but I believe Pomo will be preaching defense first and Copp/Lowry are better defensively at present. Our offense should be fine.

    *Keys to success: 1. Better team defense.
    2. Less time in the sin bin.
    3. Better goaltending.
    4. A stronger PP.
    5. A healthy lineup.

    I have the same except I'd swap copp and Perreault. My other third line option is Perreault Petan Dano

    Lots of possibilities that make sense. We'll see some experiments. Laine with Ehlers, Laine with Perreault, Connor up and down etc.

    In the end, I'm sure that our ideal lineup looks like this:

    Guy - Scheifele - Guy
    Guy - Little - Guy
    Guy - Not Lowry - Guy
    Not Tanev - Guy - Not Tanev

    I'd be really happy with that.

    These two points are bothering me... Copp is by no means "solid both ways" and Armia has shown a remarkable ability to snuff out any offense his line-mates have. Did you mean for these points to be switched??

    Armia was setting up Lowry and Matthias left and right last season and they were lucky to hit the net...
    Copp is defensively sound. Copp between Connor or MP and Armia might be interesting.

    garret,
    what would be your starting lineup?
    i am interested to know what an analytics guy's lineup would look like.
    I am guesing you would spread the wealth.

    Sorry but no way is Wheeler not in the top 6. You don't put your best winger on the 3rd line.

    How about:

    Ehlers-Scheifele-Laine
    Connor-Little-Wheeler
    MP-Lowry-Armia
    Matthias-Copp-Dano

    Tanev and Sgarbossa PB and Petan and Roslovic 1st line on the Moose.

    Go with the young guns on the 1st line and watch them become the most dangerous trio in the NHL. If Connor is ready Little and Wheeler give him a real nice spot to succeed as the goal scorer he can be. MP adds offense to the 3rd while still strong defensively. And a steady 4th that can play 12 minutes a night and carry it's weight. Fringe guys in the PB and 2 future players still on ELC's getting big minutes in all situations on the farm and ready to plug in for injuries.

    Swap Petan in for Dano, and Copp as the center over Perreault, I believe will be the starting lineup. And if not Petan, then Dano.

    My hope is Petan takes a step this season and sets himself apart from the Tanevs and Danos of the team.
