    pretend your CJ, your ideal line ups

    This is not the thread to just rip apart CJ for all the reasons you hate him...I've heard it and i still don't care.

    Give us your ideal forward lines with, and without bergeron...here are mine

    Lucic-Krejci-Horton
    Marchand - Peverley - Seguin (with segs and pev interchangable)
    Recchi - Kelly - Ryder
    Paille - Campbell - Thornton

    With Bergy
    Lucic - Krejci - Horton 
    Marchand - Bergy - Recchi
    Seguin - Kelly - Peverley (all three can play center)
    Paille - Campbell - Ryder

    Re: pretend your CJ, your ideal line ups

    On seconf thought, I would use the lineup from game 1 again in game 2.  I will leave up my alternate lines and thought process from earlier.

    I would go with two top heavy offensive lines if I did not have Bergeron.  I would shorten the bench drastically and use my fourth line wings situationally.  I would expect Thornton to play no more then 4 minutes.

    Lucic Krejci Horton
    Marchand Peverley Kelly
    Recchi/Ryder Campbell Seguin/Paille
    Ryder Paille Thornton // 2-3 shifts at most potentially replace third line wings as shown by circumstances.

    With Beregeron our depth is back and I feel the fourth line can be used for there typical 8-10 minutes they received in the first couple rounds.  I really like the explosiveness of the third line and I hope Peverley and Kelly can help Seguin to play a more simplified and sound defensive zone game.  If the Defense from this line is a problem I flip Paille into Seguin's spot.

    Lucic Krejci Horton
    Marchand Bergeron Recchi
    Kelly Peverley Seguin/Paille
    Paille Campbell Ryder

    I could definitely live with your line-ups.

    I would also play Seguin & Marchand on the PP

    oops.  you have thorton.   He comes out.  Caron in.

    Seguin and Marchand are my new rookie combo. 

    Here is mine.
    DK/Lucic/Horton- no change
    Peverly/Marchand/Seguin- speed, speed more speed. this is our game changer line.
    Kelly/Recchi/Ryder
    Campy/Paille/Caron

    When bergie comes back.

    DK/Lucic/Horton
    Bergie/Marchand/Seguin(i was one who said limited ice time.  Well he is now in the mix, he hit, he scored, he played with P&V)
    Kelly/Peverly/Ryder
    Campy/Recchi/Caron

    No more Alexander Thorton

    I can't pretend to be Julien because I wouldn't have any problem giving a talented rookie more minutes, I wouldn't have an enforcer playing in this series and Geoff Ward would have been fired a long time ago.

    THIS is the time to test caron? its the eastern conference finals, and the time is now to test a rookie that hasn't played an NHL game in like 6 months?

    Re: pretend your CJ, your ideal line ups

    How bout keeping the 3 original 1,3 & 4 lines together and moving Seguin to Center with Marchand and Recchi....I know as well as any of you, that this would be asking a lot from Seguin and put more responsibility on the kid, but I hate the fact that Kelly is off the 3rd line. When you move guys around it throws off the chemistry. So with Kelly off the 3rd line and Seguin on the third it throws off the chemistry in two lines as opposed to one. Just my two cents. I did see moving Peverly to the second line and placing Kelly on the third line as center with Seguin at wing, which would work better....I think peverly is a little more the type player the second line needs. My two cents anyway.

    To be fair.  My lineup has Caron as well.  Seguin was given a chance even though he registered one pt in his last 19 games and hasnt played in a month. 

    I like Seguin with Marchand...might put Recchi with them now that I have thought about it.  Essentially we put our 3rd line back together. Seguin takes Bergies spot.  And Caron takes Thortons spot

    Yep, a whole lot of panicing going on. You are right about it being a good game after a horrible 85 seconds.....Thats hockey and it happens. They will bounce back. They have too and if they dont, then they lose...

    oh internet gurus, so predictable.  overreact,overreact,overreact.  Fans are allowed to have opinions and feelings on how they would like the lines to look.  I didn't notice anyone saying "if this doesn't happen, I won't watch" or even, "they can't win if".  There's a three day layoff, if people discuss line combinations, then it's just something fun to think about.  If people complain about a specific aspect of CJ's coaching then it's probably because he isn't perfect, again it's just fun stuff to talk about.  It's kind of why most of us are on this forum, no?

    ...and maybe most important of all... PUT SEGUIN ON THE POWER PLAY. Seriously--what do they possibly have to lose at this point?

    Lucic  Krejci Horton
    Marchand  Bergeron  Recchi
    Seguin  Peverley  Ryder
    Paille  Kelly  Campbell   (use this line to shut top lines down, they are all penalty Killers that have speed and play physical)

    I think Bergy will be there for game 2. They showed him skating on CBC before game 1 and he looked good. I dont want him to rush back but its killing him not to play and help his team.

    I am fine with the game 1 lineup. It was less the line combos then the execution that was the issue.  But I would give Seguin PP minutes....

    down 2-0 to the habs, cj cound have panicked(like most here), but didn't. if he panicks, the team gets that vibe. he has shown confidence in them, and they have responded. what some consider a fault, i see as a strength. i wouldn't want to be coached by a guy who panicks after every loss and changes the lines. it provides no stability. if the b's play their game, they are really tough to beat. ask montreal and philly. did everyone think the b's would go 16-0 in the playoffs? they are going to lose a few games, it's how they respond after a loss that will be telling.

    No doubt you're right about resisting the urge to panic, but at least on the PP can we not agree that it's time to try SOMETHING different? Seguin simply needs to get a look on the PP at this point...get some speed thru the neutral zone to break the 1-3-1 trap....utilize his sniper shot....ANYTHING to get the PP going. Bruins got away w/a powerless PP in both Mtl. and Philly series, but how long can you keep playing w/that fire?

    I think by now it's obvious that whatever CJ's (or Ward's) "system" is on the PP, it aint working . Not a panic move to try something different--more at this juncture like a necessity.

    I agree somewhat with what you are saying but some strategic tinkering is what makes for great coaches. Bowman would tinker in-game until he found the desired outcome and it seemed to work (understatement). Stability is important but so is innovation....

    Re: pretend your CJ, your ideal line ups

    i say system shmystem. i'm sure the system is not "stay stationary, and no one skate towards the goal". that's what's happening- everyone finds a spot on the ice and stays there. not to mention kaberle is useless, it may as well be 4v4. he is is ZERO threat to shoot. what's this guy's problem? is he embarrased of his weak shot? skate towards the net with the puck, make a d-man commit, and then shoot or find  a teammate that's open for a shot. the players are gripping their sticks too tightly, feeling the presure. gotta be loose and aggressive- big z has got to start unleashing his cannon from everywhere(except the sidewall-no angle), guys get hit with his shot, and either get hurt or clear the area. it's about confidence/ energy and execution. any way you look at it, you have one more guy than they can cover- ATTACK.

    ahhhh, i don't really know if you understand what this thread is about. Its not about panic. In case you haven't noticed, Patrice Bergeron is injured, so your rant in an earlier post saying that people are panicking and saying play seguin really doesn't make much sense. In case you didn't watch game 1, Seguin was very effective, so why would it be considered panicking to consider keeping him in the lineup when bergy returns?
