Hopefully Josh is back in net. Sit Heater; he destroys any line he's on chemistry & production. He was effective years ago, but the game has sped past him.

I like this strategy. I agree that Heatley should not be playing. Hate to be negative, but Fontaine will bring way more to that top line than Heater would. Sadly, seeing him on a checking line would be must see tv.

Please have Fontaine on that top line. He goes to the net unlike...

$7.5MM is not sitting on the bench.

Yeo needs to figure it out: Scratch Heater and call up Haula. Give the kid a chance to see what he can do.

Wasn't it it Jakemano who said I was crazy to say a 15% shooting average was just good. Hmmm, I just took all the players with 6 goals or more (to include the superstar), and you know what? Average is 17.1% this year!!! High is 35.5%, low is 9.1%. Where is Zach on the list? Hmmm, the low figure. At least with Coyle centering him now, nothing less than a hat trick should be expected from Zach tonight. Unfortunately even with 3 goals in 3 shots, the sniper would still be below average. That darn Mikko, its all his fault.

With tonight's lineup and if Harding is between the pipes, I like our chances vs les habitants (also I'm going tonight and we better score more than 2!)

Thanks for the info mgalaforet. Very interesting. Hopefully you can keep us informed of one guy's shooting percentage all year long. I can't speak for anyone else here, but I know I look forward to reading it everyday.

On another note, I'm rather excited to see the Pominville-Granlund-Cooke line. Granlund and Pominville seem to have found something, and it seems to me that Cooke will fit in well with those guys.

FINALLY!!!!!!! I've been saying all year long that KOIVU is a 3rd line center on a good team. He is NOT a top line player. I see he is now the 3rd line center!
