    Good call. I wonder if he's going to slot in the 2nd with Granlund and Nino, or 3rd with Cooke and Brodz?

    Earlier today Russo was tweeting out about it and basically said that if it were up to him, he'd have these as lines:

    Parise - Koivu - Pominville
    Zucker - Granlund - Nino
    Cooke - Brodziak - Heatley
    Fontaine - Konopka - Mitchell

    But it's up to Yeo, so these will be the lines:

    Parise-Koivu-Pominville
    Heatley-Granlund-Nino
    Cooke-Brodziak-Mitchell
    Fontaine-Konopka-Rupp

    Man, I wish we could trade Heatley somewhere. Yeah, it's been only two games, but he has looked downright abysmal.

    I'd switch Heater and Mitchell hah. Then it'd be good.

    Rupp must not be ready yet. Or no reason to call up Zucker.
     
  9. Bet he didn't think he'd be getting the call already, but that's what happens with injuries.

    Russo's new article about it.

    So our top nine looks like:

    Parise - Koivu - Pominville
    Zucker - Granlund - Heatley/Nino
    Cooke - Brodziak - Nino/Heatley

    Just play the kids together on 2nd and realize Heatley is **** and bury him on the 4th line or pressbox.

    I'd like a #2 kid line. Heatley is a disaster so far.

    Mmm... None of the kid line can be defensively responsible, yet. I doubt Yeo wants a line like that. Heatley hasn't mastered that business either but he still has experience over them. I think he's been alright without the puck in the D zone.

    E: I'd rather the kid line too, tho.

    Why not...

    Cooke - Granlund - Nino
    Zucker - Brodziak - Heatley

    Brodz and Heater have had chemistry in the past. They played a lot together in the 11-12 season. Zucker is a speedy finisher, feisty in the corners and in front of the net.

    Cooke brings some D in an otherwise inexperienced line. Granlund might work a bit better as a center, we'll just have to see. Nino has a good shot and is not afraid to use it, so he's the finisher.

    The team looked like a disaster last year when we started mixing grinders and skill guys. I'd rather they keep the top line intact and give the third line more minutes and then put the skilled kids together on the second line and give them sheltered matchups as much as possible.

    From Russo:

    Parise - Koivu - Pominville
    Zucker - Granlund - Heatley
    Cooke - Brodziak - Nino

    Not bad, although I'd rather swap Heatley and Nino.

    Also, apparently Parise left early and was replaced by Fontaine.

    Did it say why Parise left early?

    I don't really get why Heatley's still in the 2nd line, but meh.

    Ah, hope it's not an injury or anything.

    He's sick, but still expected to fly to Nashville.

    Yup. Russo said Parise was not feeling well and went home to rest. He's still flying to Nashville but the Wild could potentially still call somebody up from Iowa in case Parise can't play.

    Not sure if it's just me, but that guy seems to get sick more than anyone on the roster. Training staff needs to invest in some Vitamin C supplements and make everyone watch a video about washing their hands.

    LOL.

    As for Heatley, I really wonder how long Yeo sticks with him. He seems like the same player from last year, and that player kills all 5v5 pressure.
