I hope the people who wanted BB out are happy sometimes you don't appreciate what you have. And this is coming from someone who loves Dale Hunter and idolized him!

Its not that rolling 4 lines is a bad strategy or doesn't work. I just prefer what you outlined.
the caps have a shootout specialist. #26. hunter often skates 3 lines and leaves his 4th as healthy scratches in pads with better seats. he often only skates 5 defense with the 6th sharing popcorn with the backup goalie.

i know you want a heavy something fierce.

even with that it was 20 and 21 that were getting the minutes bump and not 8.
