I understand everything that has been said but when you're tied with a division rival with 5 minutes to go, don't you want to go with your top 9? Doesn't that give you the best chance to win? If we're rolling 4 lines for most of the game, having the top 9 go a little more at that stage in the game shouldn't be a stretch at all. We complain about offense but the strategy used is defense first. If you are all for Trotz's strategy, then don't complain about the lack of offense from this team either.
So who would be the top 9? Wilson had regular shifts in the third, he was on the ice for Klein's goal as was SK. The only players that had a drop in ice time was Hornqvist and Dumont. Hornqvist looked like he's hurt, and Dumont had a bad game. I wouldn't have put either of them out there either.
