That offense disappears then. So we can.


I think that's a little overly-optimistic. Crosby, Malkin and Neal don't just disappear.

I guess, but it's clearly the case for our team. We don't get slammed every game, we play solid defense and on a good game, outshoot the opposition by like 10 shots, but we can almost never finish our chances. Add one top 6 guy who can finish on his, and you get his goal production, and maybe even increased production from your other forwards because of things falling in place. Like the only thing this team lacks is scoring, how does adding a scorer not help that?


Ruutu is a scorer?

So 3rd line automatically equals grind line? I hardly call playing with the likes of Ryder, Zubrus, Brunner, and Jagr, his 4 most common linemates, as playing with guys that aren't skilled.


I have no problem with his new linemates, but is it too late in the season to make such a dramatic change?

If we make the playoffs, I want Pittsburgh badly!  Pittsburgh D won't be able to handle us!


We won't be able to handle Pittsburgh O.

Ruutu can play center.  But he is more suited for the wing.  Regarding breaking up the lines, I think the only line we shouldn't touch is the 2nd line of Henrique - Elias - Brunner.  I think the way Clowe is playing, he deserves a shot on the first line with Zajac and Jagr.  For the 3rd line, go with Ruutu - Zubrus - Ryder.


I'm skeptical about Zubs at center. I liked Zubs-Zajs-Jags. They had excellent zone possession. Clowe and Ryder seem to match up well together; I wouldn't want to break them up. I'd rather slide Yayo into the center role. That's why I don't really get really get where Ruutu fits. Pete will never change the 4th line. And I think the top 3 lines are set if Yayo replaces Lokti.
