it's surprisingly okay. the vanilla ones are poison though. i think the vanilla ones help you lose weight because you end up decomposing in a box underground.

I'd rather have Romanov instead of Merrill in
- Pat1993

he struggles with defensive coverage, hasn't found any chemistry with anybody on D, I would sit him to start and try to focus on a sound defensive system, that's the only way they may win a game or two against the Leafs

Danault, Gallagher, Suzuki
- Symba007

I'll give you Gallagher. Suzuki and Danault have both been really up and down. Even if I agreed with all 3 the fact that it's 6 total players isn't a good sign

yeah but you can't sit 11 players and KK has been among the least effective players on this team for a while now. he's going to need an early goal or big play, similar to what happened in the bubble last year, to get a bit of mojo. right now he couldn't saw the nuts off a grasshopper.

all the more reason to play Romanov. if your theory is that best case scenario they win 1-2 games, why not give your rookie the opportunity to see how he handles himself?

with Ducharme and MB fighting to keep their job, I just assumed they would play it safe but I don't mind if Romonov plays instead of Merrill

i was actually off the shakes for months but then i decided to see if i could get by with one or two as breakfast. that's a total of 4 grams of carbs and $3 for breakfast. it worked so i stopped my morning wawa stop for an egg bowl (they've probably sent out an APB trying to find me).

I think the defense will shape up like this:

Chiarot-Weber
Edmundson-Petry
Romanov-Kulak

Merill


Guftasuck on the bench!

Merrill hasn't been as steady as anticipated either.. but goaltending should be one of the biggest factors in determining how many wins they get

Not the worst idea to start your day with a healthy amount of protein

most likely. i also think that Petry-Edmundson might be the top pair. we don't know for sure what Weber will look like but if it's anything like that past couple of months, he and Chiarot should not be matched up against Matthews.

I've looked up the macronutrient breakdown of "something" to try and convince of something else. Didn't work

You would think that Tatar, Danault, Gallagher is a lock for one line (assuming they are all healthy). I think this game (and the times earlier in the season they played together) shows that Lek-Evans-Byron should be a line.

Question - what are the other 2 lines?

And not to keep harping on how bad Staal is... most of the time I only notice him for getting thrown out of the face-off circle. But tonight, I laughed my ass off when he got knocked on his ass by a simple shove and just sat there for like 5 seconds before even moving, even though the Oilers had the puck in the Habs zone.

I think Staal and Perry are on the outside, when the playoff starts, assuming everyone is healthy.

Ya I saw that too, just shows that he not even trying

But I dont see on what planet you sit Perry, you went to go get him especially for the playoffs, what he did in the season was just a bonus ( and a big one)

Perhaps.

I'm ok with starting with Perry as well.

It's not like Byron/Lehkonen/Armia are locks either.

based on last night, Byron-Evans-Lehko are your first line
