Terry Murray’s maddening and incessant line changes have reached a new height. Against the Red Wings, he is putting Davis Drewiske as a fourth line left wing. Did Whiskey play wing in Wisconsin? In midgets perhaps? I get this sometimes happens in the event of an emergency during a game when you lose a couple of wingers to injury or misconduct penalties and I have seen it a couple of times before, but Murray is doing this after deliberate thought…I joked with a fellow season ticket holder last game that Murray’s next move may be to put Johnson as the first line left wing. I wasn’t too far off, eh boys?

Hey, it could be worse. Whiskey could have been put on the 1st line. The only potential merit to this move is that our new dangler, Kevin Westgarth (credit to Lombardi for that beauty of a line), is out of the lineup. Know also that part of the unspoken reason for this move is due to Murray’s refusal to match lines.

If nothing else, it should be interesting to watch. Let’s hope this doesn’t explode in our face. At the end of this insanity, I just want our Kings to win this game.

Remember to be outrageously loud tonight.

  1. I am seriously starting to question Terry Murray’s sanity. Why force a player outside their natural position in a critical game against a conference rival? And when we badly need a win to boot? ARRGH

  2. See through this. I think Murray wants a “defensive” forward in this game. I hope Babcock does not outcoach him.

    It is getting difficult to maintain faith in Murray unless this team wins. Otherwise he looks like a bonehead and the team we not be competitive.

  3. It becomes more and more obvious that Murray is just making moves for the sake of making moves, and until Dean Lombardi gives him something more to work with, we will continue to see this kind of stuff. We definitely need this win badly, and we need to regain our grip on a decent playoff spot. I just hope this doesn’t blow up on us.

  4. Hope I don’t loose my voice screaming at the Television. .
    Make us proud Boys!
    GO KINGS GO!!!

  5. Just when I thought I’d seen everything from TM. Thank goodness Poni will return soon.
