i disagree - when zubrus is with them, i've seen plenty of sustained pressure and some good chances.
as said earlier, i could possibly accept:
but that's the ONLY change.
rolston has lost the chance for top 6 minutes IMO.
there is sustained pressure and good chances, when they actually manage to enter the zone with the puck, which simply doesn't happen often enough. kovalchuk has 14 shots at ES, elias 9, over the last 7 games. elias only has 1 shot on goal at even strength in the last 3 games. kovalchuk is going to get scoring chances almost regardless of who he plays with, but the kovalchuk-elias combo has really struggled to bring the puck up the ice from the defensive zone, plus elias just keeps losing faceoffs.
i agree that rolston should be out of the top 6.
