Does anyone think that AV switching the lines every damn night creates ZERO chem. If you have played played hockey before you know it takes a while to build chem. I know there are injuries but you have to keep guys together for a bit.

Not much choice when you have Kassian and Booth out, Ebbett and Shcroeder in, plus games on back to back nights. With so many games in a short period of time, the 4th line needs to be utilized more than usual. However, you may not want to load up that group with typical "4th line" players, as they might be exposed.

It all leads to the necessity for changing things up.

Besides, it isn't as big a deal as most people think. I have played before and still do. If you're playing with guys who know the game, it isn't that hard to figure out where they are going to be in certain situations, nor where you should be.

Schroeder didn't have too much trouble figuring out where Weise was going to be the other night, did he?

Also, people need to realize that all coaches mix things up when things aren't working. On TSN the other night, they were mentioning the fact that Hitch had started mixing things up early in the game. Line juggling is the norm, not the exception.

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

If AV did a little line juggling I don't think anyone would have a problem. And it's not like he couldn't have left Raymond/Hansen/Schroeder together longer than 2 games when they showed so much chemistry in the one. None of them have been injured. Finally puts them back together and they produced... Who knew?
