Pilut with Risto is pretty ambitious.  Maybe Howie doesn't think Beaulieu or Nelson can handle that spot.

Not all that ambitious.  Makes sure that on the road against 1 of the top teams in the league he doesn't get caught with Nelson & Pilut out against the Johansen line.

He also gets to see how much Pilut can elevate his game.

 A cold breeze blew down my spine as I read this part.

Yes.

Plus I don't want either Nelson or Beaulieu influencing how he learns to play in the NHL, since they are the worse pairing we put out on the ice.

Drifting a little off-topic here, but Beaulieu has looked capable on the third pair and in my view is in the process of saving his NHL career. The Tampa game was among his best in a Buffalo uniform.

Oh, yeah.  He's been a capable 3rd pairing guy (maybe even a 5) whichis why I graded him out as a A against expectations.  REALLY expected a few Housley to Richer's out of him by now.  REALLY glad he hasn't been doing that.

Points %age only factorsin during the regular season.  So h-t-his effectively the 2nd tiebreaker.

Indeed. I mentioned it because it's so counterintuitive (to me) that the first tiebreaker between two teams is not their record against each other.

I would agree the last several games have been his best and he does have 5 pts and is +5 for his 14 minutes a game.

Though from my eye test him and Nelson still end up running around their end in Alamo mode more than the top 2 allowing too much cycle time to the opposing team.

I want the Sabres to wipe that stupid smirk off Laviolettes face. God I still hate that guy...

For me, it's Hitchcock.

Even with Pommer and Sheary out I like the top 2 lines. 

Only so-so on both of the 4th lines however.

I don't really have feelings for any hockey coaches. Just saying...

For me, Michel Bergeron.  Pip-squeek coach of the Nordiques.

Julien for me. He reminds of the crazy uncle from that Flintstone episode where they had to spend the night in the haunted castle. 

He also has a constant look of smelly fart on his face.

Three lines I'm happy with and the one I wish was better still has 17-71, who scored two goals together not that long ago and have chemistry. 

Can't blame Phil for much of anything tonight. Maybe if Pilut blows up, but Beaulieu-Nelson has been together a while and I'll take the slight risk on the Risto pair (using it heavily offensively) for the chemistry 8-82 have.

Why do most anthem singers lose it on "stripes"?

Probably not hard to find good anthem singers in Nashville
