    3rd and 4th lines are dangerously close to horrible.

    Are they even dressing all those guys? What happened to 11 forwards? It definitely looks like they loaded up the top 6 but one would hope a guy like Stone gets double shifted and joins the Pageau line.
    Sitting Neil? Unlikely. Siting Pyatt? Unlikely. The only two guys I see sitting would be Varone or dzingel.

    I'd go one step further and say Dzingel is the guy.

    Hoffman-Turris-Stone,
    Smith-Brassard-Ryan,
    Varone-Pageau-Open
    Pyatt-Kelly-Neil

    I'm betting it's Varone.

    Yes that would be my bet also. Although I'd be more enclined to sit Pyatt or Varone. I can't make my mind up on either player yet, I need more viewings. Wednesday!

    I have to admit that I'm experiencing a bi-polar like pre-season expectations. From thinking we might contend for the top 3 in our division to wondering by how much we might miss the playoffs by.

    Seems like most pundits have us missing the playoffs. Although I find their analysis never takes into consideration how badly hurt we were last season and what a difference Dion would have made had he been there all season I must admit that my rosy glasses are somewhat returning to their usual shades of grey.

    I don't see us becoming anything near a contender with our current line-up. We need to make a trade for a impact left winger and need to bring in another bottom pairing d-man.
    Long term I also think we'll have to adress our goaltending situation. We may be fine this year but will we going forward past that? The more I think about it the more I'm looking in the direction of Bishop. Yes, he guy we gave away. I'm not confident in what we have in the pipeline and Hammond IMO will never be more than a very good back-up at best.
    It would likely demand some shifty work from Dorion but I could see a Anderson + a good pick(like our first in a Dung draft) for a resigned bishop before the trade deadline. It would aslo give them significant cap space and a very servicable back up or 1B option for the following year. It's a dream but it makes sense to me.

    Ok back to reality.

    I think they need to address goaltending soon too.

    As for this year, I think we have an excellent team with very thin depth. I hope dzingel grabs this opportunity and doesn't let go until mac comes back, but otherwise it's a pretty solidly built top 6 with a poor third line due to injuries and a Cussing stellar top 4 D imo.

    Dzingel switches his jersey number from 43 to 18. Wonder if he will play more like JOB or Hossa.

    He also said Chabot and Puempel are sitting. He's not necessarily going to go with 8D every game.

    By the way, last week I think it was Simmer who made an interesting point about Lazar and Bingo -- the B-Sens don't play a lot of game early on. Just looked an their season opener is not till the 12th (Saturday), then they don't play again until the following Friday. They play just 6 games in all of October.

    According to Hockey's Future goaltending depth is one of our strong points. O'Connor and Driedger played pretty well during the pre-season; that's going to be an interesting tadnem down there. And then there's the Hogburglar.

    As for the third line, it'll be much better when they play 11 forwards and Stone or Hoffman slide down to join Pageau.

    Haha, that sucks for Lazar. You'll only play 10 games down there, don't worry...

    I don't think we'll be going with 8D in a single game this year. Maybe 7 is more likely what Boucher said.

    I hope he plays the amount of games he needs to get his offence on track. We need him to score on that 3rd line. Not just be another Pyatt.
