This gamethread has him centering Brylin and Gionta. (post 22)

This gamethread has him centering Kozlov and Langenbrunner. (post 17)

Found another gamethread where he centered the fourth line with Janssen and Ryznar as his wingers. :P

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

It's worth a shot. Anyone who says it's "fvcking stupid" seriously has no better suggestions at this point. Elias turned out pretty well ever since he started playing center.

Center, Winger. IMO we need to trade for a center and we also need a RW, but that is less urgent compared to our need at center. I don't know how this experiment will look, but its not ideal even if it works.

Eh, why the hell not. With the position the team is in with the hole at center they might as well see what happens. I don't expect it to work but should be interesting to watch.

Only thing it shows is a coach actively trying to solve a difficult situation. Instead of burying his head in the sand and hoping the problem will go away. Not necessarily saying this move solves anything, but sure is worth looking into.


If moving one of the leagues best left wing's to center is not desperation i don't know what is.

Give Henrique a shot with Kovy, he certainly looked livley in the pens game, and playing with better players will only help.

Oh and how good would David Steckle look right now! (3 goals, over 50% on faceoffs)



(Ok so he has 25% shooting perecentage :troll1: )

as long as 2 of our top pivots are injured, we've got to get used to deboer trying different combinations. like someone said, we're 29th in team offence. why the hell not?

What ever it takes to win at this point with 2 out of our top three centers out.

I think it's a necessary experiment.


Probably the truthiest post of the thread.

It has to be done. Hopefully it works out the best that it can.

I also agree about Palmieri.. I don't see much worth coming from that guy. His passes are never on point and lacks any physical impact.

Better to be forced to try it in October than February. I wonder how or if it will affect Zach's minutes?

It's a better idea than having Parise play on the blue line.

What quotes show Parise is less than enthusiastic about playing center? Regardless, he was drafted AS A CENTER. He can play center, I fail to see why this is not worth a shot.

The more I think about it, the more I like this idea as long as Zajac is gone. Even though Palmieri is on the RW, this line has potential to dominate.
