Dandy needs to go. IMO, Begin is more versitile (pk energy grit) and Kosto is a warrior.
Lapierre & BGL are everyday players. So right now we have 5-4th line players
So we move Dandy and we put Begin in the press box as our extra forward.
Man we have alot of depth right behind those guys...Chipper, Pac, D'Go, Stewart.
There will be injuries lets just hope that it's 4th line guys and not the D.
I think that trust gets involved at a point. Late in games, coaches want veterans who might be limited but , in his opinion, can carry out assignments. So, while we get sick of the old guard , coaches don't.
It seems that, however the team defines lines or players, Chipchura is a checking C, Lapierre is a 4th line C, and I conclude this because they have a traditional 4th line but not a traditional checking line, so Chipchura has less value.
I like Chipchura and Lapierre on the same line, but damn you Carbo....
As for the faceoff thing, well, guys get better by taking faceoffs against NHL competition. He has to improve in this area but he neeeds to play to do it.
