what players fit positions on our team
just wondering who you guys think match the criteria:
I believe we need a 2nd line C, a checking winger, and a #2 dman to become legit contenders:)
1C Kopitar - star center, best yet to come
3C Handzus, Stoll - 2 third line centers paid like 2nd liners, keep 1, lose 1
1RW Williams - gritty winger with hands, compliments Kopitar
2RW Brown - perfect second liner, scores, hit, leads
3RW Simmonds - defensively sound with offensive upside
1LW Smyth - gritty veteran front of net presence, meshes with Kopitar
2LW Frolov - could be a top 20 player if he grew a heart
Spare Ivanans should only see 40 - 50 games a year
Spare Richardson - shows jam, unfortunatly no physical presence
1D Doughty - growing into role nicely
3D Johnson - I am being nice here, getting better but not yet there
4D Drewiske - getting better all the time, plesant suprise
5D Greene/Scuderi - solid physical Dmnn with no offence
6D O'Donnell - physical dman, shouldn't be asked to do more
7D Jones - perfect fit as a spare, should see time eventually
1G - Quick - doing good
2G - Ersberg - if Quick continues to do well Ersberg is adequate
Demote - Purcell - needs to regain confidence
Promote - Clune - as soon as he is ready
If Murray finally decides to stop trying to spread around the offence and give teams 2 solid scoring lines to concentrate on and let Handzus and Simmonds lead a checking line it wont leave a lot of minutes left for a energy line. Ivanans is not needed for half our games and a spolid physical energy line would be welcome to wear down the opposition.
Next year the problems are fixed without doing anything.
We have to remove Ivanans and Harrold is sitting already.
We waste a speedy Center with good hands on the 4th line and using two 3rd line center. All that together looks like no chemistry
but is house made because it's unbalanced.
To answer the thread, we have good guys for the position, we just need a 2nd Center and that will be filled with Schenn
Right now it would do, to shuffle up the line a little bit.
That would be balanced scoring.
The 3rd and 4th line would share the time against the opponents top line. The 1st and 2nd line would be pure scoring lines.
Our Problem is:
We have a great 1-2 in Kopi and Smyth (If we move Williams off the 1st line we can create a 2nd line) or get a true 2nd line centre(Open pocketbook AEG)
We have a coach that insists on complaining about sndary scoring, Yet takes the 2nd line centre and puts him on the pt on the 1st PP.
Leaving the 2nd PP unit consiting of mixmatched players without their 5on5 centres. then a huge confusion going back to 5 on 5 instead of keeping it elementary. Recipe for Disaster
#1 goaltender that is young that was given the job without earning it.
I am a big fan unless you have a top 5 or 10 goaltender of keeping him honest. Murray hasn't done so.
Let's see what happens going forward
