if you take the brouwer position and turn him into a pure screener, the pk's options are easier. they will just take 8 and 52 away
Yeah. The problem is, Brouwer isn't potting that shot lately, and the Caps' previously scorching PP has looked mediocre of late. That's why we were brainstorming these adjustments. Under the theory that PP needs improvement.
Anyway, you could also use the Man Child Screen on the 2nd unit, too. Yes, we haven't tried it much since early in the season, but the flip side is also that the NYR PK isn't dialed in on it.
Honestly I don't expect Oates to make any of these changes. I think PP success is a recent enough memory that he won't change the template.
