I have no idea how you guys are defending these actions by coach K but ok i'll give it a try.

Your right Smyth isn't holding them back, but he's certainly not helping. Maybe yakupov could create positive energy and perhaps even get them going a bit.

Also, Smyth is a lot smarter defensively while Yak is already -8 on the season despite getting minimal icetime. He blew a tire a couple of times tonight and had a couple more giveaways... I dont think putting Yak on a line with Eberle (all of a sudden has become a defensive liability) would be smart unless we are down a couple goals.
The ice times i posted are for todays game while the give aways are for all year if you look at the TOI/G yak is at about 14 mins and smyth is at about 15 and a half mins because at the start of the year smyth was on the third line and yak was on the second line .

I don't want yak playing 20+ mins but he should be over 15 mins for sure meanwhile imo smyth should be 15 mins or less the past two games he's been well over 20 mins.
