Now with Leighton on the LTIR, Nodl can be brought up since the roster will be at 23 men. I read (on this site?) that he will take warmups in Pittsburgh, but are the chances pretty high that the Flyers roll both Carcillo and Shelley instead of Nodl?
Since we all know the Flyers never deserve any of the penalties they get called for, especially in Pittsburgh (
), wouldn't it make a bit more sense having Nodl in the lineup for 3rd unit PK opportunities. If Richards/Betts/Powe/Giroux get a penalty, Nodl should be high on the list to fill in for a quick 30-45 seconds.
Speaking of which, any info on the Special Teams lineup chart?
I guess if Carcillo gets too emotionally into the game, which I hope he does not to the point of getting lazy/stupid penalties, there will be a short leash with Nodl in the pressbox. I like Carcillo on the edge, he can be a valuable asset to that line if he can somehow pull it together, but he can also drag the entire team down with him.
