I liked the BFF line last year Bert, Flip and Franzen were a menace....still allows us offense on both top lines while Abby checks in for Emdog on the 4th.

Please Emmerton! How he has been playing over Tatar this whole time is a mystery to me.

Seems they are more interested in winning the Calder Cup than the Stanley Cup.

Since he was with GR at the end of the season (not sure when the deadline is) they have dibsies on him for the playoffs.  If they're out, we get him. 

 

The only way we get him up early is if we have no other options in the press box.  So, with Abby back, three forwards have to get injured (or suspended).  I'd rather wait for next year to see Tatar cuz you can't pick who gets injured.

Emmerton out.  No question in my mind.  Sammy had a goal (although a gimme).  Bert has been very heavy on the puck and playing simple, low risk game.  Emmerton is a push (at best!) - not real good, not real bad.

Hope I'm not right but I'm pretty sure it will be Eaves...

I would take Emmerton out , not because he's been terrible it's just numbers.  Sammy has been fine, Bert has been fine, hell even Cleary has been alot better the last few weeks.  I would keep Sammy on the top line, I like the right handed shot with Z and D.

LGW after 1 loss is irrational, after a few in a row it becomes quite comical, 22 playoff appearances in a row and 4 cups in that time and still going strong. Relaxxxxx !!

Given that Abdelkader is a winger, I don't see us sitting Emmerton, a center.  Besides, that would mean that we'd need to split up Z and Dats.  I'm guessing Sammy sits.

Bert has been amzing on the 4th line.  He as given us real depth and made that line really dangerous.  Really, we out match the Ducks on every line except the Getzlaf line (which is equal to the pav line). 

 

Move Bert up to the Filpula line, keep Sammi on the first, and put Abby on the 3rd and take out Emmerton.

Who are your proposed centers?

He's a better winger than a center, and has played the wing almost exclusively this year.

 

He is however one of our better faceoff guys (or was last year) he should be a significant upgrade on Emmerton in that regard.

 

I think it all depends on how banged up cleary is after that hit last game.

Abdelkader is a center.

 

 

He has been in the past, but hasn't been used as one for the overwhelming majority of the year.  I think it's more than safe to assume he'd be put back on the same line he was on when he was suspended.  Why would he suddenly be used as a third or fourth line center when he's been a winger on the number 1 line nearly all year?

I'm not sure how anyone could want Abby anywhere other than the 1st line tomorrow.

 

The past two games the 1st line hasn't been able to sustain pressure in the offensive zone. They produced chances, but they rarely controlled the play. I want(ed) Bert on that line, but I think that is a long shot since he wasn't moved up the past two games.

Lol equal? No I'd say their top line has been better.


But I agree 2 3 4 lines we have the advantage.

If perry stays in his slump and if we could get points out of z or fil I believe we can win this series yet no doubt in my mind. But those are some big ifs.

Abdelkader is a center who also plays wing
