Habs Lines are set but they hurt down the middle

RDS.ca is reporting that during a golf tournament, Guy Carboneau stated that his line combinations were already set.

So here they are:

Higgins Koivu Ryder

Samsonov Ribeiro Kovalev

Perezhogin Plekanec Johnson

Begin Bonk Murray/Downey

Markov Rivet

Komisarek Souray

Dandenaut Streit (Boullion being injured)

Huet and Aebischer

(there are 2 spots for youngsters: a 7th defenceman and a 14th forward. These will be fought for in the rookie camp)

That’s pretty much what we have all been saying all summer here on this site, however the bad news is that Saku Koivu is pessimistic about starting the season. Nobody is saying much and they are all saying we will see at training camp but it does not sound good. (this is another RDS article)
