Good changes... these lines will be interesting because it will force the players to be more focused on what their linemates are doing rather than playing by rote... (" Willie always goes to the far post, so I'll just lift the puck over there. Whoops, didn't see Doughty waving his stick on the backside... oh well, next time"). Also forces them to play the system with more focus.
Williams was moved down because he's been horrible at getting over the blue line and he's in one of his slumps. Loki can carry the puck and let Williams just be a sniper. They compliment each others playing style down low with short quick passes and quick hands around the net. Could be very good.
Hunter is up front for tip ins and corner work with Brown. It also makes the first line much bigger and faster. Brown and Hunter could open lanes up for Kopi. TM is probably thinking Kopi could get Hunter some rebounds - now that he's shooting more.
Anybody else think the Richards line will play the best two way hockey? A very nice balance between offense and defense that TM can throw out for big time face offs? Richards other task is showing Stoll how to use that gun....
