I think our second line is looking pretty weird (sykora-elias-zubrus). only because each person isn't playing their "normal" position. Which it would be Elias-Zubrus-Sykora.

i like this move for the time being now that zajac is out. parise and kovy are both good passers and are always scoring threats on the ice. parise is also a great defender so he should be fine playing center

i know Parise will not be bad as a Center, but thats not my concern. my concern is that we may be taking one of our best scorers and put him in a place where he needs to focus on setting other guys up...

regardless, tho, i know we dont have much of a choice.. heres to wishin for the best!! :cheers:

At the post game he sounded exactly like Elias after he got switched to center. I'm sure you guys remember he didn't exactly love the idea, but after playing it really liked the fact that he got to handle the puck a lot more. Parise said the same thing in the post game, how he liked having the puck more. Why wouldn't you want it in his hands more. :noclue:

I approve of this experiment. I really like the idea and the team looks better on paper than when ZP plays LW.

I wonder if the reaction would have been the same if we had got hammered by the Kings?

If he is staying there untill Zajac or JJ comes back then lets see how this is going after 10 games.

His production and that of the line needs to be consistent.

Putting the puck more times in the hands of guy with as much talent as Parise is a good thing. Watch the D when he carries the puck. He scares the Bejesus out of them knowing that he's not looking just to pass. Kings gave him a lot of room and that in turn created chances. When the focused on him, he found open wingers. Sheet, they could have scored in the first minute if Kovy planted himself on the corner of the goal when he tried his first wrap around. Team looked faster and more dangerous. I solidly approve of this move and think how scary that line will be once they get comfortable. :koolaid:

ive been thinking about this....if parise does excel at center does he stay first line center...zajac as a 2nd line center behind parise makes sense to me as a solid one two punch..also we would suddenly not be weak at center with that combo

"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."

Well obviously, in NHL 12 Parise is listed as a playmaker, so of course he'd work at the center position... :boogie:

He didn't look too out of place last night. I mean, as someone else said, he pretty much played as a winger in the offensive end..but this does allow for Kovy and Zach to be on the same line. Dangerous stuff.

A healthy top 9 could look like...

Elias-Parise-Zubrus
Kovalchuk-Zajac-Palmieri
Tedenby/Sykora-Josefson-Clarkson.

I like that a lot better than being overloaded on top 6 LWs.
