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.”
