Agree with this. And to that end my main issue is all 4 lines were rolling tonight and looking strong. First time all year I think our 4th line looked like it deserved a shift for playing in the opponents end and not just essentially being a 45 second neutral zone regroup drill.
So ET may have had a bad shift, and may not have forced more playing time. But i thought that line, and him had more strong shifts than weak. In my book that's not a recipe for benching. IMO when DB does this, he turns us into even more of a 1 trick pony team. If Geno and Neal don't score we lose.
I will give DB a + for sitting Vitale and lighting the fire. I think Vitale knows what he needs to do to stay now.
I like the Orpick Engo pairing. The bash brothers. Makes our pairings a little more dynamic to send out a duo you can count on to cause pain and ruffle feathers. We need that intimidating aspect against some bigger teams.
