I feel like it's a bit of a conundrum, though. I actually like the look of those lines on paper (except Weiss on the 4th line). What do we change?

-We could swap Weiss and Helm, but I feel like Helm's been playing well.

-We could put Weiss in Franzen's spot, let Franzen sit a game and give Cleary a spot on the 4th, but we know that won't happen.


Or we could do the big jumble and reunite some lines that have worked in the past:

Franzen-Z-Nyquist (worked last year. Mule shouldn't be rewarded with 1st line duties, but these lines are spread out and less hierarchical) 


Weiss-Dats-Helm (our too many Cs line worked when Dats came back from injury)

Miller-Glen-Jurco (Jurco on the 4th looks ugly, but this line had some good push earlier)


I'd make one change to those lines:


Franzen - Z - Nyquist

Tats - Shea - Jurco

Weiss - Dats - Helm

Miller - Glen - Abby


Let the grinders grind.

Abby would add a little bit of a scoring touch to the 4th too.

Babs rolls that 4th line so often it wouldn't really be like a demotion for him.

Are you saying that you intentionally believe unlikely things, so that when they don't happen you're happy about the surprise? 


Because it sounds like you are. 


In which case I wonder, why stop there?  You could believe a whole host of horrible (and unlikely) things and then celebrate your good luck when they don't happen.  Here's a couple...


1.  I'm going to get eaten by a shark tomorrow.

2.  Next Thursday my house will be poisoned by radon. 

3.  Racoons will abscond with my cat.

4.  This year, I really will get a lump of coal for Christmas.

5.  I'm probably already possessed by Satan (or perhaps some lesser imp). 



I dont even know what abscond means, but that made me lol

Pedal to the metal for 60 minutes tonight.


Should be a big win for us.
