Line Juggling

Another game, another seemingly random assortment of lines thrown together in the hopes of breaking out of the slump. While I suppose you can't fault the coaching staff for trying as much as possible to get their players going, there comes a point where it all starts to seem just a little bit random and desperate (see the "Josh Gorges at Forward" experiment from a couple of days ago). Logic would dictate that keeping lines together to build a bit of chemistry would be the best way to go, but that's easier said than done when the team isn't scoring and there's pressure from all sides during the Centennial season.

With the team winning last night, things are a little less dire for the moment (at least until the puck drops in Vancouver). For now, we'll just have to wait and see if things stay the same, or if some random new lines get pulled out of the hat tomorrow.

  1. He can pull lines out of a hat, but can he pull a rabbit? Vancouver has been hot...this game could be trouble.
