    Okay, I know this discussion has occured many many times but since Canada's last Exhibition Game is over, what do you think Canada's lines will be? And what do you think Canada's lines should be?

    I doubt -- for the first time in his hockey life -- Jarome Iginla starts playing the left wing.

    I'd dress these lines...

    Line 1: Mario Lemieux - Joe Sakic - Jarome Iginla
    Line 2: Brad Richards - Vincent Lecavalier - Martin St.Louis
    Line 3: Ryan Smyth - Joe Thornton - Danny Heatley
    Checking Line: Kirk Maltby - Kris Draper - Shane Doan
    Extras: Simon Gagne - Patrick Marleau - Brendan Morrow

    If the coaching staff doesnt want to dress a checking line, swap Gagne for Maltby and Marleau for Draper.

    Pair 1: Wade Redden - Scott Neidermayer
    Shutdown Pair: Robyn Reghr - Adam Foote
    Pair 3: Ed Jovanovski - Eric Brewer
    Extras: Jay Bouwmeester - Scott Hannan

    #1: Martin Brodeur
    #2: Roberto Luongo
    #3: Jose Theodore

    One of Regehr or Foote will probably play with Neidermayer, just a hunch feeling. One puck mover with one stay at homer.

    Also, the Joanovski/Brewer pairing has been horrid in the exhibition, by far the worst pairing for team Canada. Both of them are good on the rush but really are just plain bad in their own zone. I wouldn't be against sitting Brewer in favour of Hannan at all.

    I'd say it would be Regehr then, unless it was crunch time. Quinn will spread out his 2 most experienced defensemen.

    Brewer and Jovonovski only played as a pair in the first game. Brewer played with Foote the last 2 exhibition games and Jovonovski played with Redden.

    Yeah, cause we know Gagne can't play on a checking line...I mean, just look where he plays for the Flyers.





    Wait a minute...

    i like these lines the best.

    only changes i'd make would be to put hannan in instead of brewer, as well as gagne instead of smyth.

    that certainly seems like a dig on the oilers doesn't it? that's not my intention at all. and if you oiler fans don't like it, just be glad i'm not the coach. :D

    Sorry, I used the wrong wording. Not the pairing, but the pair of players, Brewer and Jovo have been Dr. Cough up and his assistant Cough up. One of them should sit, probably Brewer.

    When they're chewing apart other teams power plays and top lines, Canada will beg to differ.

    i dont care for the rest of the lines but i want this line to happen

    Heatley-Lecavalier-Iginla

    Sakic hasn't been playing well and Iggy and Heatley seem to have some Chemistry while Vinny and Heatley have Chemistry so put those three together and you got the #1 scoring line of the World Cup.

    That could be a deadly line... although the brute force Heatley - Thornton - Iginla showed last night during the breif stint they were together impressed me. A fantastic mix of power and talent.

    May the flees of a thousand camels infest your armpits. :) I could see the Brewer out thing, but from just listening to a few of the games, it seems Smyth has been one of the better forwards thus far.

    if maltby and draper are going to be dressed they HAVE to be on the same line. quinn cannot be playing them alone because then the grinding they are looking for is gone and it also puts 2 guys with sub par offensive skills with the likes of thornton, sakic and lemieux,.

    Draper is not a joke. The guy just won the Selke trophy for a reason...


    There needs to be a shut down line.

    Heatley - Sakic - Iginla
    St.Louis - Richards - Lemieux
    Marleau - Thornton - Lecavalier
    Smyth - Draper - Doan

    Bench
    Gagne, Morrow, Maltby

    Niedermayer - Regehr
    Foote - Brewer
    Hannan - Redden

    Bench
    Jovonovski, Boumeester

    I think Draper needs to play... he earned this spot on the team and we need him to check the other teams best players. Defense pairings have one bruiser and one offensive player on each line, so they should balance well. I think Jovo needs to sit... IMO this guy causes more goals against than anyone.

    Ya, I'm afraid Jovo has played notable worse then Brewer. Either way - both appear to be locks for the starting lineup.
