Was this random sentence meant for another post? I don’t understand at all.



Yes, I know that there is no rule that says your three best forwards need to be on your first line and so on. Obviously. But in an exercise where we’re talking about the top three lines (and a first line typically plays the most and has the most offensive responsibility, with the third line being the opposite) it is certainly worth noting that you’re giving less talented players more icetime than more talented ones.



Funny you should mention that. Go look up how much icetime Streit got in 2007 and 2008.

2008 in particular has to be some kind of a record when you look at his points and icetime. It definitely paints a picture of what type of player he really is. To Zambia’s credit, they have him on the 3rd pairing and on the PP so they know what they are doing.

All the numbers on your own team are based on greater responsibilities than they will earn in a competitive MLD, so the point is moot. I don’t see a difference in even strength puck movement from one team to the other overall. You should be happy; this is one area where you are the equal of your opponents.
Why does 2008 "point a picture of who Streit really was," but 2009 and 2010 don't? 2009 and 2010 were clearly his best NHL seasons.

2009:
25:13 TOI, 2nd place had 21:36.
+5 in a team with a -79 overall goal differential

2010:
25:42 TOI, 2nd place among players who played more than 20 games had 20:49
Even on a team with a -42 overall goal differential

The fact that Streit was used as a PP specialist in 2007-08 shouldn't take away the other things he did
