Or your suit and tie, whatever fits.
Dave Tippett voiced his frustration with Mike Modano and Brendan Morrison after Sunday's loss to Montreal, but is part of the reason for that because it's so difficult to put lines together with all of these injuries?
What say we all help him for tonight's game against the Blues.
With Steve Ott the best player on the team right now, you have to allow his impact to make a difference, so Ott-Ribeiro-Eriksson seems a natural to keep together.
Fabian Brunnstrom is out, and the team is lacking right wings, so that does present a problem. How about a second line of: Morrison-Modano-Conner? It should have speed and skill, and I think Modano and Morrison could feed off of each other. Either that, or you could put Mark Parrish on the right wing and call it the Dog House Line.
That would allow for a third line of Neal-Sutherby-Wilson that I think would actually be interesting. I like Sutherby at center, and he and Neal played well together in that game. I also think Wilson is an underrated player, and he is a natural right wing who could maybe turn over a few pucks and maybe get to the front of the net.
That would leave a fourth line of Lundqvist-Begin-Barch, which I think could bring some physicality.
I'm kind of all over the place with these changes, but I actually think they would work?
Should I e-mail these to Dave Tippett or do you have better suggestions?
