Should PDB make any lineup changes for the next game? If so, who should he insert? Who should he sit?

Personally I think Kovy should sit again. He's obviously hurt. Maybe get him some of those mysterious treatments he took earlier in the playoffs and have him come back rejuvenated in Game 5.

Maybe get Tallinder in there, and move Harrold up to forward again? Or should Fayne sit?

What about strategy changes?

Thoughts?

I think so at this point. It can't hurt. We got fvcking smoked tonight.

Harrold for Larsson.
Fayne for Tallinder.

I can't see them sitting Kovy at all. He probably does need to sit as he has been ghastly on the puck for the most part, but there's no way he's coming out unless he can't move.

absolutely no need to make any changes. The team isn't playing poorly.

Yes and no, I think lineup changes will give them extra jump and it will put some fresh guys in. Why not change the lineup, nothing to lose now.

Yep, this is my viewpoint as well. Before this game I was completely against lineup changes, now I'll take anything to get a spark.

Fayne continues to be underappreciated here.

I don't know what to do. Might as well rearrange the deck chairs.

Put in Larsson, put Harrold at RW on the 4th line for Bernier.

Or sit Kovalchuk, he sucked tonight.

Exactly. And for the guys who will be here next year, the experience is invaluable. Not like you get to play in an SCF every day. Plus fresh legs never hurt at this point.

I'm curious: I've seen two lineups and Bernier has been benched in both. Why?

I wouldn't take Harrold out in a million years. Volchenkov (slow) or Fayne (terrible these playoffs) out, Tallinder in. Clarkson (sucks) out, Sykora in.

I could be convinced to take Volchenkov and Fayne out and put Tallinder and Larsson in but I'm not for it as of now.

I don't know, perhaps try to go back to some stuff that was clicking earlier in the year at some point. Just try to get some sort of new dimension in there. Zidlicky hasn't looked great the past 2 rounds, Harrold hasn't been atrocious but he isn't producing any offense, and I'm not knocking Bernier but he is the most expendable out of the forwards imo. I like what Josefson has brought since his return.

The question is, do you coach to possibly win 1 or 2 games, or do you coach for the future. You can want to believe that we can win 4 straight, it's very romantic, but you are probably the same people that buy hundreds of dollars in Powerball tickets each time it get's crazy big. I would show some respect to the vets and the future. Let Hedi get some time, put Sykora in for Poni or Bernier and let Larson play for Volchenkov.

It is want is is at this point. Status quo isn't working. Do something.

Sit Zid and Harrold insert Tallinder and Larsson. Can't hurt.

Sit either JJ or Bernier and insert Sykora.

It's amazing to me that PDB said Clarkson was the Devils' best player in game 1. Is there something we're all missing? He's looked awful to me.
