Meier is senior. Meier is a poor skater, Joannette is an above average skater. Joannette is effortless and not fancy in skating with an excellent ability to read the play. Both are moderate callers. Joannette has good game control, Meier does not. A little score calling from Joannette, none from Meier. Both tend to swallow the whistle in the third, with Meier almost leading the league in swallowing. A little home advantage from Joannette, none from Meier. Joannette has a high safety rating, Meier is a little below average. Meier is average in calls generating 5on3's, Joannette will make a second call. Neither tends to even up calls for a game.
Joannette may be a moderate caller, but his games tend to be tight or loose, mainly loose. He is not authoritarian but will not take grief from the coach or players. Let's see how Sutter does, Sutter makes Keenan look pleasant.
