i would chop it up to staying on top of players that "may" hit the market.


information is king. if holland gets the sudden call...he just hits his notebook, and replies...ummm...no.


i'll give you...#*%^ for that guy. 


go away, "you pancake eating..........."

i have never been one to believe a "4th line" should be made of your scrap parts and grinders. 

to me, the NHL is the best players. so why not roll 4 lines, of equal time, with even balance players, every game.

key your most aggressive/fastest player on each line towards the opposing lines most dangerous scorer.


if glen plays best against crosby/johnson etc...then line him up. but if he is overworked by toews or patches, or OV...then keep him away! 


the only reason i can figure that traditionally top 1-2 lines get more ice time is payroll. 


we all can see what abdelkader has done to the top line. not a pure goal scorer by nature, but talented linemates brings out his best.


i would propose...







sit miller when pavel returns. pav-AA-helm line? hmmmm.


balance time on ice for all 4 balanced lines.


teams do this with specific defensive pairings...specific PK duties...powerplays...why not 5v5 time too?


each game, guys having "good night" get put into crucial moments, when needed.


example...franzen always lit up the senators...give him a good setup man (pav) and the disruptor that get the sens specifically in a bind. manipulate the weakness of the opposition.


loose andersson, call up AA!...or miele...or mantha..give them the 9 game blocks to show. thats approx 18-20 days of practice/games learning the system, gaining comfort and chemistry.


if you were to do this over the season, by playoffs you know what you got for callups and next year.


i know, the cap and roster limitations handcuff the team/league. that needs to be addressed in my book.


end rant.

imagine getting rid of ericcsson & smith and adding wideman & bufuglien?




we would have to lose some cash overhead, and some talent, but what an improvement!


calgary would want active forwards (jurco/sheahan/ferraro) while winnipeg would want future defense.(xo/sproul..etc.)


anaheim "might" be interested in smith+3rd for fowler...which i would do.
