Then maybe they can hire you to be the GM!

If BB and Despres are the scratches I'll think about applying for a place on LGP's most popular bandwagon.

Why? He was playing with Malkin/Neal before the injury.


I really wish they would try
Bennett-Crosby-Dupuis
Kunitz-Malkin-Neal

Its not like HCDB hasn't been a line change experimenter his whole tenure with us as coach. We keep trying for a LW on Malkin's line, not sure why you wouldn't put Kunitz there where you know he has also had success and try Bennett with Crosby. Its just my instinct, but the way Bennett plays I think will work well with Crosby more than Malkin. Malkin/Neal are attackers. Crosby is a dissects the defense, Bennett goes to open ice and faces the play. Crosby will find him.


This is the reason that you don't split up Sid and Kunitz: Image



BINGO!

as of right now it looks like despres is the scratch and bortuzzo is in.
also looks like bennet and boychuck will be with him in the press box.

Not sure why Bennett isn't playing with Crosby and Kuntiz at this point and try Dupuis with Malkin.

Not sure how you can scratch Despres after Montreal? I don't want to fire Bylsma, but sometimes he confuses me.

I'll wait to pass judgement until we hear the official lineup tonight, but if Bennett and Despres, or even one of them is scratched, an big ole rant is coming from me. Could get ugly.

Don't know if they know what they are talking about, but...

"The 26-year-old is to play on the second line with Beau Bennett and James Neal against the Lightning."
