You have to slowly blend those forwards in with seniors, just as they have done with Carrick and Cord.
I think they should pair Demelo with a rookie and Percy with a rookie on 5 on 5. It seems like both Demelo and Percy are getting complaicant and get too confident that the other guy is there to bail each out. They need to get hunger back into their system.
I agree that Percy and DeMelo should be split. They just might have to work a bit harder and think a bit faster if they didn't have eachother to depend on. Look at Diodati, he's had 4 different D partners this year (Graves, Zottl, Duhaime, Welsh), along with being shifted from 2nd to 3rd line D.
On another note, what is the man thinking when it comes to his PP. Maybe he could consider actually creating a second PP line instead of putting a regular 2nd or 3rd line out there. 2 minute straight PP shifts for top line is ridiculous as well. Mississauga has one of the worst PP in the league.
Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
