Would have liked to see Kreider switched with Zucc on PP and while on that topic, I am still anticipating the day when we can see Zucc-Richards-Nash together on a 5v5 line.
Completely agree according the PP. It was really good a while back. Last game after 1 for 11 or something the first unit created nothing, to be replaced by a beautiful shift by the 2nd unit, and then the first unit on again after 15 seconds for the remainder. All in the same pp. Wouldn't mind seeing Richards - Zuke - Nash on a 5 v 5 either. Also think Hagelins slump to some extent must be credited poor line combos / same lack of seeing patterns. Hagelin is looking great now btw.
