There doesn't seem to be a "big guy" on that third line, biggest guy would be abby at 6'1" but thats not big in the nhl, that's average. I don't like that bottom 6, I was looking forward to cleary helm eaves, and a grind line of miller abby tootoo

 

I agree with you, I wanted to see those lines as well.  I think that would be better for the team.  However, Abby does bring a big(ish) body at 215-220 lbs. and I'm just saying that they must want that on the third line with Bert in the top six and Sammy out.  If that's not their thinking then I don't know what is, because Eaves is a MUCH better winger than Abby.  The only thing that makes Abby preferable to Eaves is his size, in skating, scoring, PK, forechecking, and defense, Eaves is a better player.

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

I get that abby has 30 pounds on eaves but we need pucks in the net, and so far cleary isn't playing well, so we either need miller or eaves on a wing with helm, cause abby can't score

I completely agree.  I was just trying to figure out their thought process, I don't agree with the decision at all though.

Emmerton over Eaves? That doesn't make any sense.

Miller scored more goals than any of the team's other grinders last season. 14 goals is not in the least shabby for a player who makes close to league minimum and who can also play effectively on the PK.

I guess, but he is just lame. He is not using that body, he is no defensive specialist despite seeing PK minutes. He is just... there. I would rather see someone more physical in that role.
