I think you are going a bit over board, by the time your done you'll have everybody benched and no team to play with. First thing Rivet has already been pulled to pass message to the team. This message was no matter who you are you can get pulled for a game. Rivet is a big part of the leadership on this team. So Carbo already did what you stated in your post. 2nd Markov was benched a couple games ago for the whole 3rd period, once again to show everybody that if you don't play well this can happen to you. 3rd I would never replace bouillon with niinima, he a liability and bouillion is coming of a knee surgery and needs to find his grove again he has been out for more than half a season. If you want to break the little confidence that samsonov has sure bench him again, which is rediculous. You don't want the guy to hate you or the team. He has been a healthy scratch and now he his on the 3rd line, so the message is clear to him that if he keeps it up he will stay there. He wants to be on the top 2 line and now it is up to him to work for it, that's were that stands. This is what get me really worked up is that you want to send koivu down a couple lines …. ok fine but you will take 1st line centre … NO ONE! koivu higgins and ryder will alway be on the same line unless there is an injury or a trade, or to jugle some lines. But to make you happy we can call koivu's line the 3rd line and bonk's line the first, so your wish is granted. Koivu is the heart and soul of the team and put's up a fight every time he is on the ice, how about you start watching the games! Carbo did everything right now it's up to the players to step up, if they don't respond well there will be some changes before feb 27 and in the off season. Carbo expects the team to play in his image which is working your A$$ of each time you are on the ice, and he knows what he's doing and he is taking notes. So every thing you wrote about is either absurd or has already been done. Try to think of somthing better to say next time! Carbo and Gainey aren't idiot's. Gainey is rated amongst the top 3 GM's in the league, but Lou Lamorillo is GOD!
