And as for the players you mention
You can not say Sandlak (and players like Hooey, Austin, etc.) have been given quality pp chances, what are they supposed to accomplish after the top units have played a minute and a half of the pp... and as for there minutes if lemmon was playing 8 there not much further ahead with all the penalty filled games they have had as of late.
The coaches have provided little opportunity for players other than their favorites whom you mentioned up; thats a fact, pay attention to the games in more detail, take a stop watch and you will realize that
And yes i agree a shake up is necessary for the forwards
Yes, the Powerplay was Anemic but it has been all year and that's why changes were made. Austin, Hooey and Sandlak have had PP throughout the entire year to this point, enough so that they didn't produce either. Hence the continual changes. As for Rookies being on the PP all week, not sure which games you were referring to since I recall last game Petti and Berisha being given PP time, but game before looking at the gamesheet Berisha wasn't on there and I don't recall seeing Heff or M.Cram on it so not sure what game you were watching closely.
As far as penalties, yes way too many and that definitely kills ice for a lot of guys since if you're not a PK guy you sit for all those minutes without a single shift. Coaching staff haven't really changed the PK units much at all but I'm guessing that's because it's 2nd best in the league so for any Vets that aren't on the PK it's hard and you know rookies won't see that ever since it's so successful. Bulls need to stay out of the box period or else you'll have a lot of cold players and it's a sure way to lose some games.
With all the pokers in the fire we'll see who stays and who goes, but in the end no matter what changes are made the Bulls will never be a high scoring team playing that style of game. I don't even think bringing a Monahan or Graovac would change that much.
