If Galchenyuk could crack the lineup, I would move Desharnais to the wing. I personnaly think Desharnais is good along the boards even if hes small, and alot of his assists come from passes off the half wall.
Galchenyuk and Pacioretty have that American connection, and Pacioretty and Desharnais have that good chemistry.
Putting Erik Cole with Plekanec Gionta will give Plekanec two proven sipers as oppose to last year when he was playing with Gomez Darche or Moen
On the fourth line I would move Ryan White back to his natural position so that we can have a solid 4th line ( Armstrong Moen White all come from western canada)
That Moen Eller Bourque line could be good if Bourque shows up. I just couldnt think of any other player to add some toughness and a little skill to the 2nd line.
I'd love Moen to turn into a Clarkson type player, just going hard to the net, scoring goals, sticking up for his smaller linemates, etc.
Gotta agree with Sens, that lineup sucks. If Galynchuk makes the team, then I could see DD getting traded and not much coming back since MB would likely try and throw in Kaberle (regardless Kaberle and Gomez do not make this team, whether you like it or not):
Lol at the Defensive pairing.
The team is small beyond any belief.
Diaz, Gorges, Bouillon, Subban, Kaberle (because he avoid the beef at all cost)
Markov..? Still nobody knows, last time I herd about him was in february.
And I haven't look at our center yet /sigh
Moen is in the lineup 100% sure.
Gomez will be injured to an undisclosed upper body injury.
Eller might not fit with Therrien or the opposite, Bourques too, Desharnais I really like the guy but plenty like him in the system, Diaz, Kaberla are all expandable, even Plecky.
Replaced by Tinordi, Galchenyuk, Gallagher, Leblanc, Geoffrion, heck why not Kovalev.
