    Forward thoughts:

    We need to find a regular combination for Duchene. I’m not as concerned about secondary guys like Boedker and Tierney having one of Duchene/Stone I’m their line. They’ll still do their thing. I’d like to try Duchene White with Stone next game, perhaps having the former two alternate taking face offs, dependent on side of the ice. I also think Duchene on the wing could give him a breath of fresh air. White is unreal at faceoffs too.

    Duchene White Stone

    Dzingel Tierney Boedker

    Formenton Smith Ryan

    Pajaarvi Pyatt / McCormick

    For the D:

    Harpur not on the ice today, so we may be forced to roll 12-6 if Boro is indeed suspended. When’s the last time we had so many righties in comparison to lefties? Someone would have to play their off side, unless we called up Wolanin.

    Chabot DeMelo

    Lajoie Jaros

    Wideman Ceci

    This will be Duchene's first game back in Colorado since the trade. I'm assuming he'll be extra motivated.

    We just keep playing the top lines over and over again.
    Leafs
    Boston x2
    Dallas
    Now Colorado.

    Another big test for our young team and particularly our young D.

    There's a 0% chance that he plays the wing on this team. Way too thin at C.

    The 2015 draft is exquisite.

    Boucher: Ceci in, Mccormick likely in, harpur doubtful,Andy in nets,plan to have condo in a game during road trip. Uncertain on 11-7 or 12-6.

    Mackinnon is going to feast on the backend.

    Like I mentioned in the OP I think he and White alternate faceoffs. Given White’s proficiency in the dot I don’t think Duchene’s positioned to start a given play matters as much. Frees him up to fly down the wing too. Can always revert back to original configuration if that doesn’t work.

    I still shake my head at Boston's three picks. Especially with the very next three picks all tearing it up.

    Yeah that was Muckler-esque drafting. Picking those next 3 players almost guarantees another cup IMO.

    I might have missed it, did we call up a forward to replace carey? I did see we sent him down

    If Boro is suspended and Harpur still isn't ready to return, I hope they call up Wolanin,

    Chabot-Demelo
    Wolanin-Ceci
    Lajoie-Jaros

    Three very balanced pairs (in no particular order). I think that might actually be our best option tbh, though it might not have quite the right personnel for the PK.

    I wonder if Englund has been any good in the AHL this season.

    If I recall, I think I've heard something to the affect that this team sometimes calls up players based on role. I could see Englund stylistically fitting the void left by Boro/Harpur much more than Wolanin. Also, as you mentioned we may need someone who can play the PK.

    With that said, if we're rolling with D who Boucher doesn't trust, maybe we go with 7D dressed. Sieloff would be our other option in that player type.

    I think you forgot about Wideman, although he hasn't been very good and was my choice to come out of the lineup when Ceci returned

    Love these late start west coast games.

    I wonder when the next time we take our chances with Condon will be.

    Anderson may end up playing 60-70 games at this rate, but i think we need him to this year.

    I do and it's paying off although the guy that went right after was Matthews.

    Chabot-McAvoy would have been the pairing of the next decade.... And then you add Barzal and Connor to Bergeron, Marchand, and Pastrnak .... sheesh. At least DeBrusk has worked out for them.

    I can’t remeber if it was 2 or 3 games ago but he was scratched. I can’t see him playing any role in the NHL to be honest. Jaros is more likely to fill the Boro role than anyone else on this roster imo.

    Half forgot, half didn't care to correct myself. Not really a fan of Wideman, but am ok with him as a 7th d when we go 11/7. That said, the overall point was about filling the LD spot left vacant by Boro/Harpur and Im not sure Wideman fits that role.
