I would like to see Trotz come back with the same lineup against the Bruins. I would assume that he would insert Varly in lieu of Sorokin.

Palms played with some passion against his old club. Here is too 17 more wins.

Rick Tocchet is out as Arizona's coach, too. They came close to making the playoffs this season. Last year they made the playoffs and won a round.

Both teams are in real trouble. Could see one or both of them moving

Considering how crazy things went in Vancouver, I'd look at Tort's time in Columbus as a success. But clearly a lot of players leave the Blue Jackets and you have to wonder how much of that is the coach and how much of that is because it's Ohio...

Disappointing to see K-Palms hasn't been productive. He's always been very streaky but I'd be worried...

Leo on the first line is ridiculous he’s an AHLer at best and Bailey sucks.

Any idea when the playoffs start. This is a joke at this point.

I like Zajac in place of clutterbuck but no way we see that in the playoffs as they want them to hit everything

I feel like trotz is trying to find a home for him but ultimately he’ll be the odd man out for the playoffs unless there’s an injury.

Well I agree the top 3 lines are a lock sonthats the spot. Look at this for top lines in the league

Yeah I think Zajac is the perfect depth forward if we need some stability in the dot or we have an injury. I think Barry, (who should be fired) is going with the same lines in the PO’s as the last game but as you said with Clutter on the 4th line.
Can’t believe Leo is on the first line and did I mention Bailey sucks?

Top 3 lines are a lock I would say all four lines are a lock at this point. There’s no chance he breaks up that fourth line to give Zajac playing time especially for what he has bought so far besides a couple of decent games. Good to see the Nelson line playing some good consistent hockey. Hopefully they can keep it up but we’re going to need some scoring from that first line. Can’t depend on only them and the Pageau line to deliver the one or two goals most likely needed to win. Should be interesting to see how these lines perform in the playoffs.

my Son just texted me from school with an instagram link and said..

"we are going to lose"

I was worried an Islander was hurt but it was this one on the Capuano coaching Team USA... I am still laughing.

Somewhere Brian Strait is looking for his equipment.

Yes with the Devils but his ass needs to go now as well. Clean house start the rebuild.

Now that’s (frank)ing Hilarious!
His agent must have paid USA Hickey to hire him so maybe if the team does well he will get a head coaching job.

This is not the Olympic team. They probably had trouble finding guys who were interested in the job.

If I recall Cappy has either coached or been an assistant for one or two of the World's teams in the past, still funny though
