jedimaas Posted January 13, 2012 Report Share Posted January 13, 2012 I like your top 6 guys and giving Eller and Pleks big minutes. Once Gomez is back in game shape though, I wouldn't mind seeing what he can bring on the 3rd line wing with DD and Moen (or even centering DD and Moen) and dropping Darche down to the 4th line which Noke centers. The 1st two lines are great. The problem is that you then have DD and Gomez, both set-up men without any scoring skills themselves, floating around with 4 wingers who themselves can't score. It seems like a waste of those two guys and it puts a lot of burden on the top two lines to be on every game. I'd rather see the scoring spread out over 3 lines personally and give Gomez and DD each at least one guy who can pot goals. To me, Gomez is the guy who moves to the wing... My bottom six is based on the following assumption: Pierre is not finished with trades - but I presume that the players mentioned in my top 6 (even AK) will be around past deadline. If thats the case, then lets play them a lot now & decide if that really is our best course of action (Ie: if its worth resigning AK, which my gut tells me they will). Either way, as Gomez rounds into game shape, I would probably turn the third line into something like Gomez-DD-Moen (although I expect Moen to be dealt). I fully expect a few other guys to go before the deadline. Its unlikely that Gomez will be one of them (we can hope) but it is posisble that Desharnais would (assuming we can get a young, bigger talent in return). Of course this is all assuming that we are going into a mini-rebuild mode, which I think is not certain right now. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
