Hyman-Tavares-Marner
Moore-Matthews-Nylander
Johnsson-Marleau-Kapanen
Ennis-Goat-Brown

Id like to see this in game 5, Cassidy would have trouble matching this if Marleau commits to the position change.

I love the look of those lines, although Marleau has been pretty much useless for awhile now. Maybe playing down the middle and all over the ice will keep him from losing every board battle?  :-\

I'd also love to see the backend (snicker) without Zaitsev. I'd go with:

Muzzin    Rielly
Gardiner  Dermott
Rosen      Hainsey 

RHD's be damned!




Zaitsev has been good. Last night not so good but if he plays 3 good 1 bad, we'll take it. He isn't coming out anytime soon.

I've seen other people on here say this too but personally I haven't seen it; I think he's been bad every game. The amount of times that he has carelessly thrown the puck away or flat out iced it, even when not under pressure, has been astounding. I know he isn't coming out of the lineup but I think he's easily been their worst defender.

I honestly dont why everyone is bad mouthing Marleau. Yes understand he is not scoring. So we all love Nylander (Not me IMO he lost game two). That whole line hits checks well. All these lines are not going to score. Ennis has been exactly what he was supposed to be hard to hit and tries hard.

Zaitsev has been excellent. IMO I think Muzzen has turned him into a NHL defence man
