In Topic: Your Ideal Opening Night Lineup

Today, 02:17 PM

That's a lot of faith your putting in Ryder to slot him in as both the 2RW and 3RW lol. I'm sure you meant to put Havlat as the RW on Elias' line though.

I really hope they don't try to stick with Zubrus as the LW on the 2nd line. He showed last year that he definitely can't produce at a level high enough to warrant top 6 minutes. I'd much prefer him as either a 3rd line wing or 4th line center.

 

 

Haha good catch. Yes, I did mean Havlat. I also agree that Zuby is better suited to be moved off that line. With DeBoer's love of "2-somes", I'm sure many players will be given the chance with Elias-Havlat. Maybe it'd be better to do line projections with DeBoer's "2-somes in mind.

 

Zajac-Jagr

Elias-Havlat

Henrique-?Ryder?

GIONTA

The pendulum has definitely swung to too much hate for Gionta. He is a 4th line center who brings effort, can be used on the pk (although i personally hate him on the pk), chips in the occassional goal and seems like a fantastic teammate. Plus watching him lay decent hits on people much larger than him must bring a jolt of energy/entertainment to the bench. My current opinon is: I love him as an extra forward and accept him as the 4th line center until someone pushes him out with their results on the ice (not their potential).

The tripping a player even if the defending player made initial contact with the puck is bs.

 

So I chase down a breakaway, dive, hit the puck off the attackers stick, but if I follow through, even if I got the puck first, and trip the attacker I'm called on a penalty for tripping. WTF?!!?!

 

 

This is the one that I see as the biggest change too. Not sure if I am just misinterpreting it, but this would seem to be a massive change to breakaways and even odd man rushes.
