Re: 3'rd Line has been horrific

In response to tremha77's comment:
Not generating any offense or providing sound defense.
Time for a change. Why not (barring a trade and until Kelly comes back):
Spooner, Peverly, Paille
And then the 4'th line is a combo of:
Pandolfo, Caron, Campbell, Thorton, MacDermid (who deserves a shot to see if he can help change things for the better)
Based on the Buffalo game, the 4th line that you reference was actually the 3rd line.
Although I agree they are aenemic when it comes to offensive capabilities at least they are recognized during the game and put some pressure on offensively, even though they don't score.
The new 4th line, that is supposed to be the 3rd is a bigger problem...they are virtually invisible out there every game and are a major cause of the team's slump.
The B's need to trade for some true NHL caliber players to replace at least Caron. Pandolfo, although not doing anything on that line, at least contributes on the penalty kill.
Maybe the first move for next game is the bring Daugavins in to replace Caron... BTW, where the heck is Daugavins...I checked both the current Boston and Providence rosters and he's not on either?? Was that waiver claim completed successfully?
