    This certainly isn't Torts' view or he wouldn't have taken them out of the lineup. I also thought they were much less effective this round (prior to any play with Wennberg).

    Let’s be honest , Foligno , Is worlds better than Wennberg at center ice , and he doesn’t neuter his line mates in the process . Sedlak would be a better option as well. Wennberg is afraid to possess the puck , shouldn’t see the ice the rest of the series . Also , enough with this nonsense that the series is too heavy for Texier , Dzingel . Not every player has to play a heavy game , besides , we are playing right into Boston’s strength trying to our hit them . We have 7 players over 20 goals , but Torts is resigned to playing 2.5 lines for the series , with a Heavy dose of Dubinsky , Jenner .

    There really hasn't been for about a year.

    Buy the bum out at 1/3rd. He'll get a 1 year $1 million "prove it" deal from someone. Or go to Europe.

    Missing the point. Everyone is less effective with Wennberg in the offensive zone.

    I thought that was really bizarre. That seemed to indicate those guys (Hannikainen, Sedlak, Robinson) have no shot of drawing in, barring two injuries. It’ll be two of Wennberg, Dzingel and Texier in (with one sitting in normal circumstances) and all three in if someone’s injured.

    I heard him....he was decidedly not included. There's always one in the crowd (or multiples in Philly). I've been to Nationwide a couple times and I thought the fans were great.

    That’s true to a point. Nash was skating on a wing with Jenner at center and Dubi on the other side. Right? I already can’t remember the groups from the Lightning series. Was Foligno centering Texier and someone?

    I think the lines were

    Panarin - Dubois - Atkinson
    Dzingel - Duchene - Bjorkstrand?
    Texier - Foligno - Anderson
    Jenner - Dubinsky - Nash

    I think that was it. That was definitely better than the current 3-line setup that wears the team out after 40 minutes. Though I would keep Bjorkstrand with Panarin.

    Yeah it’s hard to believe dubbing Tex out and then Nash made that much havoc.

    It didn't have to. You could still have had something like this:

    Panarin - Dubois - Bjorkstrand
    Dzingel - Duchene - Atkinson
    xxxx - Foligno - Anderson
    Jenner - Dubinsky - xxxx

    I of course prefer Sedlak and Hannikainen for those open spots, but that's besides the point.

    It was Torts decision to break up the Foligno-Anderson combo that left us with only 3 lines.

    I love Torts but if there's 1 thing I have issue with (on "occasion") it's his lineup decisions.
