2019-20 Habs Lines

198 posts in this topic

The line-up is rapidly evolving, but as it stands now with Shaw and D-Lo gone, this is what we could potentially go with...

Drouin-Domi-Lehkonen

Tatar-Danault-Gallagher

Byron-Kotkaniemi-Armia

Hudon-Poehling-Weal

Thompson, Peca

... would guess there is a lot more to come tomorrow that will change this, and I left Suzuki out for now since he seems to have been told he's being groomed as a center.

I really dont like that lineup we missed the playoffs by 2 points this year with the subtraction of Shaw and no additions we are not even going to be in the playoff race.

A lot of players would need to match or exceed last year's stats, however,,,, adding a capable backup in itself could get the job done. Shaw is very replaceable in house IMO. His fragility made him expendable.

Lots of guys had career years last year or played pretty much near the peak of what we could expect from them... Domi, Drouin, Danault, Petry, Gallagher, Tatar, Kulak... hard to imagine any of them giving us a ton more than they already did. Shaw also had a career year and he made Domi and Drouin a lot better when he played with them. He was also an important cog in the locker room, seemed to get along with a lot of guys and bring them together. So there's some risk in dealing him away, although I think we all get it given his numbers probably don't get any better than they were last year and his injury risk is a concern.

But I think there would have to be an add at least at left D in order to see improvement in this team, unless Poehling/Suzuki/Brook/Mete/Juulsen really surprise with how much they can contribute...

First let me start off by asking What is going on tomorrow and how does it affect the roster?

My lines would be....

Drouin-Domi-Gallagher 

Tatar-Kotkaniemi-Suzuki 

Lehkonen-Poehling-Armia 

Byron-Danault-Cousins

Mete-Weber 

Or

Leskinen (depends on his preseason showing then everyone would slot back)-Weber

Chiarot-Petry 

Kulak-Juulsen 

Price

Kinkade

Lehkonen Kotkaniemi Armia

Byron Cousins Suzuki

 

Mete Weber

Chiarot Petry

If Suzuki doesn't completely impress out of camp, then Evans takes his spot.

I like Peoling and Suzuki in the lineup, however to me there are a couple of note with the way your roster is filled out.

1. Tatar-Danault-Gallagher probably won't be split up.

2. Drouin and Domi are great together 

3. IMO KK needs better wingers so might like to see how Peoling-Kotkaniemi-Suzuki works out. 

4. The D you have is probably the best we can send out at this point.

But I like the personal you have listed.

I am going to assume Poehling is back in time for to start the season and has continued his push for a spot for at least the first 9 games for this lineup prediction. 

Tatar-Danault-Gallagher 

Domi-Kotkaniemi-Suzuki

Drouin-Poehling-Lehkonen

Byron-Evans-Armia

Hudon, Weal

Mete-Weber 

Chiarot-Petry 

Kulak-Fleury

Folin

Price

Kinkade

I don't like moving Domi back to the wing but to be honest KK has earned top 6 minutes and Domi doesn't make sense in the bottom six. I feel like Thompson may not have done enough to stay with the team so far with what Evans, Poehling and Suzuki have done. I wanted to add Leskinen to the left side but hesitateto add a 5th rookie to the lineup even though he has out played Chiarot so far. I also didn't want to leave him a the 7th dman just because he wouldn't benefit from that. Maybe he gets a 9 game tryout but unlikely.

JK is pointless so far this preseason and has done nothing to put himself above Domi in the center spot. I can definitely see Suzuki alongside Drouin/Domi/Suzuki. So I still see JK as the #3 center and I don't think 1,2,3 even mean that much anymore really. JK has potential but he's not there yet and there is no reason to move Domi from that center spot. It might even be better to have JK on Domi's wing. I still think if you want to get the full potential out of Drouin he needs to play with someone like Domi. Also like it or not the team actually needs Douin to a least be the scorer he can be. I hope that Suzuki can fill in Shaw's offense , I'm not sold on Lehk's adding that much more offense. I'm hoping Poehling does still get the 9 game try out as I think he brings something we need. He could probably play 4th Center and Wing and special teams.

And I would argue that the reason KK is pointless so far is cause his wingers are holding him back. A game or two ago I saw him make a beautiful pass out from behind the net to a wide open Armia in the slot who then fanned on the shot if that was Suzuki, Byron, Domi, Tatar, Gallagher or even Drouin that puck would have been in the back of the net.

Easy now folks lets not judge too far one way or the other just yet, once we get closer to actual NHL rosters we will see who is playing well or not. the games we have had so far are for the coaches and the team to see what our crop of young guns and new players are all about many vets are not even close to 100% and still things look pretty good overall so lets wait a couple of games to see what we really have.

By the way Domi has just 1 assist so far as well so I wouldn't say has done anything to put himself above KK in the centre spot either.

Well last season Domi was far above JK , It's JK that has to prove the other. JK didn't even finish the year strong. I believe he will be much better this year but that still isn't a good reason to move Domi to the wing when he has proven he is effective at center and against top opponents. With todays game as fast as it is the "old" 1-2-3 even 4th line designations really don't mean that much anymore. I believe the team is much stronger with Danualt/Domi/JK all as centers with hopefully Poehling as 4th with sone special teams duties. Suzuki as center some day will probably work also , but in the interim I think he could be an effective winger and power play player. A great top nine I think is more effective than a loaded top six. Also with special teams everyone will get their ice time. Game by game ice time can adjust big time just by the opponent you're playing and home/away ect. At this point though if I "had" (which we don't) to switch either , I'd switch JK to the wing.
