So, you? You’re Coach Lambert.
You’ve done a pretty good job getting this team to where they are right now, so, um, thanks!
But now you’ve got lots of new guys on the roster, and you may have a couple more guys coming back down from Nashville once Sully and Cal are in good shape.
You’ve got quite the schoolyard lot of forwards.
So you’ve got to assemble four forward lines. GO!
Blake Geoffrion, Ryan Thang, Ryan Flynn, Mark Santorelli, Andreas Thuresson
Cory Conacher, Chris Mueller, Gabriel Bourque, Mike Bartlett, Taylor Beck,
Steve Begin, Michael Latta, Mark Van Guilder, Austin Watson, Matt Halischuk
(I left Hunter, Shields, Wilson, and Klasen off the list…but feel free to throw them in your lines if you want. While suggesting this exercise, I remain, not the boss of you.)
Would you slide Halischuk back in on the Bourque-Mueller line? Or play him with Geoffrion and someone else? Would you like to see the two Guelph ATO’s together, or is there more to gain from them playing with some more veteran players? Do you keep the lines we’ve been having for awhile now and just make minor changes? If you want to see the young guys, who gets scratched?
