BoT Roundtable – Forward Thinking

One more round of fantasy line-maker with the players available.  This time, I moved things a bit forward for our writers:

Who do you think should be the top offensive line this season?

With the current top six, I still think Couture-Thornton-Pavelski is the way to go, although I’d be interested in seeing Havlat take a crack at the 1st line sometime during the season.


I like Couture-Thoronton-Clowe.  Clowe can add some good toughness and should give the other 2 some space to score.

Thornton, Pavs, Havlat. Which sets up a pretty sexy second line of Marleau, Couture, and Clowe.

Couture, Thornton, Pavs…. Although I hesitate with Thornton….I think he’s gonna fade a bit more this season. Sorry guys, had to say it.

It’s likely Couture – Thornton – Marleau  Thornton and Marleau have to step up production or else.

Well if we hadn’t lost him, I would’ve said Mitchell-Couture-Clowe.  I’d have to agree with Mike since I can’t think of anyone else that would better pair up with Logan and Ryane.  I don’t think Marleau should be on the top line because he’d be better bolstering the lower lines, and Thornton is a wild card: he’s good only when he’s good, otherwise we just get behind the back no look turnovers from him all game.
