Any criticism/imput is most welcome! Thanks guys.
What the heck is your best forward doing on the third line? I would play Apps on the first line and give him your best wing - Yakushev. I think Yakushev was best in front of the net, and he can pick up Apps' garbage like Drillion did. I would also put Yakushev on the first PP instead of Roberts.

Holmstrom needs to be on the 4th line at even strength (with PP time) or benched.

I don't think Rob Blake should play the full PP, and I really question whether Shore should do it, if he's also playing 1st pairing PK.

I might be off here, but wasn't Machac an offense-first defenseman who played next to the more well-rounded Pospisil?

I agree with MB - you're way overplaying Crosby, especially considering his short career and injury history.

I would switch Blake and Bilyaletdinov's sides at even strength.
