It is amazing. Zajac is one of those things were you dont know what you have until you lose it. Zajac has become one of my favorite players over the years.

This Sestito news is worse then Pelley still being around. The terrible two on the same line screams 30% Fenwick with weak minutes.

Any news about Zajac coming back soon is good news for me. I hope this changes the chemistry among the team.

So when Travis is back do we put Henrique centering Kovalchuk now or we move him on the wing with Zach

with Zajac

Parise - Zajac - Tedenby
Kovalchuk - Henrique - Clarkson
Sykora - Elias - Zubrus
Janssen - Carter - Zharkov


until Josefson is back we cant really put Parise Zajac Henrique together without splitting the Sykora Elias Zubs line really... cant wait tho...

Parise Zajac Henrique... ZZ Pup line! cause yeah... Henrique is really the team's little puppy right now lol

I have a bad feeling Kovalchuk will be with Henrique at center. They could be one of those lines that shoot well over their head while being poor in possession. At least Zajac and Parise can face somewhat tough competition until Zajac is ready for prime minutes.

it's conceivable in the same way that it's conceivable that they start scratching tallinder in favor of fraser or begin matching elias to 4th lines. no way.

Parise - Zajac - Tedenby
Kovalchuk - Henrique - Clarkson
Sykora - Elias - Zubrus
Janssen - Carter - Zharkov


I like this a lot. I'm so sick of seeing Kovalchuk on the right wing.

This Zajac talk has got me anxious. This team needs him back soon.

No way Henrique gets wasted with Kovalchuk. Hes gotta stay with Parise.

Posts like this make me feel that this maybe the second message board I quit today.

Wasted? I think Henrique can be very good for Kovalchuk while Parise's production can pick back up when he reunites with Zajac. In my opinion, its important to get 2 out of the three players on the lines set.

Parise-Zajac-RW
Kovy-Henrique-RW
Sykora-Elias-Zubs
Ever changing 4th line

When Josefson comes back he can go to center and Henrique can go to RW. The open RW's will most likely not be set and will not be constant unless some real good chemistry is developed.

well obviously when Josefson is back we can put Henrique on the RW but until then what else can you do? put our top 2 centers on the same line? to play and build chemistry with a guy who could leave this summer instead of trying to build something with the guy that we're gonna have for like another 45 years ?

Glad I missed the speculation today because I would have been bugging out...But glad that Zajac could be back soon! The sooner he comes back I feel like maybe Zach could get into more of a groove and not only help the team but also maybe his chances of signing...

Parise-Zajac-Tedenby
Kovy-Henrique-Clarkson
Sykora-Elias-Zubrus
Palmieri-Carter-Janssen/Boulton/etc

In this set up, Teddy, Clarkson and Zubrus could all end up being switched around as I have a tough time imagining Tedenby getting 1st line minutes when he's barely played even on the 3rd line and even has been a scratch lately. I also don't know how well Clarkson would look with Kovy and that might be a defensive zone disaster as well, so maybe you end up with Zubrus with Kovy and Henrique, while Clarkson plays with Zach and Zajac.

OR

Parise-Zajac-Clarkson
Kovy-Henrique-Zubrus or Kovy-Elias-Zubrus
Tedenby-Elias-Sykora or Tedenby-Henrique-Sykora or Sykora-Henrique-Palmieri
Palmieri-Carter-____ or Tedenby-Carter-_____

This set up seems more balanced and the only changes I could see happening here are Henrique and Elias changing places so that Elias centers Kovy and then either Sykora or Zubrus would be the RW on that line. The 3rd line would then be made up of Tedenby-Henrique-Zubrus/Sykora. I would think Zubrus would get the first shot at the time with Kovy and Patty since he's more defenzively responsible and the 3rd line would be able to be kept away from playing against dangerous opposition, at least at home that is, on the road those lines may be shuffled around.
