Ramsay on lineup changes

Thrashers coach Craig Ramsay tweaked his line combinations again Wednesday. Get used to it.

“I like to do that,” Ramsay said. “I truly think that as you move through this [season] that everybody plays with everybody. … What you see is they start talking to each other. That’s an important part of it because during the season you are going to have people in and out of the lineup, injuries and they should feel comfortable with each other.

I asked him he hoped the end game of the line changes was to get permanent lines as the season progressed.

“We would like to get lines that we play together on a more permanent basis,” Ramsay said. “There are often two guys that stay together and one guy that moves. Thorburn and Eager are still together. Ladd and Little are still together. Along those lines we often keep two and change one.”

Somebody needs to break out tonight, Peverly, Little, Antro…somebody. We are living on borrowed time competing with little to no scoring from our top 5 players.

My vote is Burmistrov will break out, which will prompt Avery to go after him … and hopefully someone will keep the kid from getting pulverized (maybe Kane with another TKO?) …

Fan?

Its funny that slates sits, yet Nik plays, or should I say is present. Plays would be an overstatement.

I’m sure Avery is even more of an idiot with the Boogey-man protecting him….

Avery makes me ill. Would someone, looking at you Boults, clean his clock tonight??

PS.. Nothing wrong W/ Modin in my book. I haven’t seen him commit any glaring mistakes.
Solid play… not spectacular just solid.

GO THRASHERS!

Modin hasnt contributed like I would’ve liked and made a big turnover a game or so ago but even though slater has alot of heart and hustle I think sitting him was ok I feel his games been sloppy since returning.

Yep, Bolts will never score!
It looked as if he intended for that backhand to hit the corner of the net!

OK….. just for the record…I’ve now seen(heard) Modin commit a glaring error.
Sounds like a lazy play to me….. Mental. been around long enough to know better.

Regardless, big win in a hostile building…. bring it on home boys!
Let’s heat up the BULB!

I want to state that NO ONE hates the New York Ranjerks more than I! That said. I am pleased the Thrashers secured a victory at Madison Square Garden. Offense was in above average form. I am still thoroughly disgusted with Marshmallow Chris Mason between the pipes! A lead of three goals almost squandered by the Sori Letemin wannabe. Is there a rule which states Thrashers must surrender four or more goals per outing? Please clue me in if there is! Forgive the Devil’s Advocate response. I am happy with regulation victory. Badly needed. Badly! Hope guys in blue can string a few wins together. At least act like professional hockey team. Hear that Marshmallow man? STENDEK

Modin has had a couple of turnovers in our own zone and also didn’t defend White well on White’s goal either. I really didn’t agree with some of Ramsay’s lines. Little-Ladd combo is golden. I like Bergfors on that line as well. I also like Kane-Peverley together as a combo, so I don’t agree with Ramsay for breaking those two up. Antropov played a good bit better tonight against the Rangers. He seems to slowly be getting better and better each game out getting up to game speed. He got robbed on the right doorstep from a nice pass from Eager. Antropov also had a couple of more good shots from close in. I feel Antropov will be getting his first goal soon. Anyway here would be the lines I think would be best…

Ladd-Little-Bergfors
Kane-Peverley-Stewart
Modin-Antropov-Slater (since Slater is good for face offs and Antro isn’t)
Eager-Burmy-Thor/Boults

I think Burmistrov and Kane should be together, both are fast … one can score, one can pass and hold onto the puck.

JLC – please go stick your head in a toilet and flush it. A full bowl of excrement would be preferable.

Buzz – I agree. Kaner & Burmy should be together the rest of the year. Their back-checking + skating speed = T/O and breakaways. Kaner needs someone who can get him the puck and Burmy is the guy!

Smoothie, if he put his head in the toilet, the bowl would be full of excrement soon thereafter. Doubly so if he does so with mouth agape.

JLC please teach me why you want hockey out of atlanta, i am hockey and soccer fan i am also atlanta fan, i like when falcons , dogs, jackets win however have some reservation about football are you enemy of atlanta, i been in Europe recently and a lot of people i spoke respect atlanta for 96 Olympics, nba and thrashers. if you for take out asg clowns from atlanta sport this is reasonable. so i am puzzled. bring more sports including mls soccer this make more sense unless you are JLC enemy of free atlanta people.
