hey how fun is it pretend like you know what the line combos will be in Randy Carlye Line-up? about as fun as me you-tubing it all night by myself drunk on a saturday nite....for the record I started off the nite with 2 buddies and even invented a new drinking game...I just outlasted them *...and just continued partying...the new janes addiction song is fun to listen to loud and drunk by yourself
anyways...as Carl G pointed out...its fun to predict shit with a small sample size...me just watching one game...yet reading up as much as I can from folks here and AC calling and sports writing outlets.
assumption is the top 2 lines wont change...but the bottom six is where it gets intresting...heres one idea keeping in mind belesky will be in the mix soon also
your probally asking what about Palmeri, Pelly, Holland and Bonino?..I think they could use more seasoning now I know contract status is gonna determine more who stays and who goes...but Im just having fun here...but Id rather those guys get better minutes elsewhere and develop there game...Im not hugh on macenauer but we need a warm body to center the 4th line...Parros paired with big boy Maroon could be a intresting energy line and im hoping Maroon could be rotated on the 3rd line to give that line some beef and forechecking help if Cogs is inaffective/inconsistant as he has been this preseason....were stuck with cogs..but doesnt mean we have to play him all the time..and it sounds like gorilla head and ducks fans with there comments want more from him.
Palmeri I think still has a chance to make the team for the record. um no he doesnt
another wild suggestion would be this but i think the first line will stay intact..and no folks..for better or worse blake is staying on the 2nd line...get over that
Cogs goes back to his natural position and I still believe Mcmuffin has the juice to keep up with the big 2....u can put belesky here also as hes shown hes competent on the top line....with belesky in one of the 4th line players take a seat...maybe parros?.....intresting 3rd line though right?..though they wont win a face-off to save there life.
on defense....assuming lydman is out for a couple games well heres where it gets really difficult...I keep trying to put fowler on a lower pairing..and I think u just cant do that...your better off banking on his talent and using him as much as u can...hoping his puckcarrying and smarts will get him out of tough situations..here are some intresting options....any insight on whom they think works better with each other would be welcome...here is a balanced left-hand/right hand pairing from the 2nd and 3rd pairings and the way I think it will shake out:
but how about this?
I like this because it gives more time for the 2 talented youngsters..and both have the recovery speed to cover each other brain farts up?....PKs though should look different of course having brookbank and guenin more involved.
u can interchange fowler and Sbisa here....but from what I heard Sbisa doesnt seem to work well with frankie....but well c
oh and how bout this mami?...yum!!!...I think Brett michaels stuck his member in her...assss!!!
*we also played darts drunk...I have a bad habit of standing in harms way next to the dart board when Im playing..(to scorekeep faster and retrieve darts as a common courtesy)..I just realized how dangerous it probally was that nite..when a really drunk person was throwing the darts
