Bailey hasn't responded to messages well in the past. He plays a little harder then reverts to his old ways. He was looking at lot better for a while. Its disappointing the old Bailey is back. I think they should shake up the top two lines.

Only thing is he was never given a message from a Cup winning coach. I agree the top two lines need to be shaken up.

Probably won't. Benching his ass for a game or two might.

He was sent down to the minors and it didn't make a difference. Maybe at this stage of his career being benched will embarrass him enough to get his butt in gear, but I doubt it will be enough to permanently change him.

Beau needs to be put back on the third line. He played well there for a while. Bailey needs to be taken off the ice for a while. He is providing nothing for this team right now and is dead weight.

If it wasn’t for lehner last night this game would have been real bad.

I would try Beau on the 2nd line. Put Lee with Barzal on the 1st line with Eberle.

I'm not against giving Dal Colle a try in the top-six. Kid has earned it, in my opinion. If it doesn't work out, no big deal. I'd like to see him with some offensively-gifted linemates.

Oh definitely not, but it might wake his ass up for the next month or two.

I still feel come next year there will be a lot of changes here. I mean this year was an evaluation year and I am sure bailey is not winning any one over at this point. I wouldn’t be shocked to see new top lines next year

Either with Barzal or Nelson. You could swap him and Beauvillier for an easy shuffle. Or send Beau to the 3rd, Lee with Barzal and DC with Nelson.

I'd love to see MDC get a shot in the top 6. I just do not see it happening at least yet.

Neither do I. He is just not there yet. His stick handling skills are sub par and he hesitates a lot before he shoots. I mean I been impressed with him but he needs to clean those areas up

I just don't think Lee is a great fit in Barzal's wing.

None of it is the end of the world. Last night was the first time they didn't earn a point in 9 games. I have full confidence that they'll bounce back in short order.

Lee could have trouble with Matt's speed. Last nights loss was not a big deal but the offense has struggled as of late and the PP problems are nothing new.

I have no issue if Barry wants to give it a try. I'm fine if MDC is kept on the 3rd line. Maybe MDC can see some PP time?

This is bizarre. There are concerns with the team but the sky should not be failing.
