Noel admitted in the presser that LLW line was bad, but when asked why Burmi and Welly got less ice he said it was because he needed to get other guys going even tho he liked what he saw from Burmi and Welly. In other words, cause Ladd and Wheeler sucked today, Burmi and Welly got less ice, as opposed to sitting the vets and rewarding the young guys he does the opposite. That's the only thing I don't like about Noel.

I don't think he even got that today. Was used less and less and Burmi barely got on the ice in the third. Wish Noel would give these guys more time.

I thought the Jets played a much better game tonight.

Postma was better.

Burmistrov was picking on Chara again!

The Jets need to attck the net better and stop making those soft flutter passes.

It's a bit of a head scratcher isn't it? Sounds like wife logic.

Happy to hear that Burmi wasn't sitting because he was hurt atleast. Don't completely agree with Noel's reasoning, however, LLW needs to get going for us to have a chance at playoffs.

I think we're finally seeing just how integral Burmistrov can be do this teams success.

I gotta give Postma props on a good stick lift on that play though.

...or the definition of insanity. Doing the same thing, expecting different results. I guess in a warped logic sort of way, I get it, but it's not how I'd handle it.




Please don't tell my wife that I liked your wife logic thing to insanity, pretty please?

True, but the lower percentage play would be to force him wide, wouldn't you agree? Postma's got the wheels for it. I really hope Huddy can help the guy, he's got some nice tools.

Oh, guys! I watched the game with friends, so I wasn't following the GDT. Did anyone post the Burminator picture when he Burminated Chara?

Every scouting report on Pav says he has crap positioning and relies far too much on athleticism. I tend to agree.

The one thing I liked about this game is it showed how much depth we actually have. When LLW return to form and Kane & Jokinen develop better chemistry, we can roll 4 balanced lines.

Ladd-Little-Wheeler
Kane-Jokinen-Wellwood/Scheifele
Poni-Burmi-Antro
Thorburn-Slater-Miettinen/Scheifele

I might be biased, but that is a deep enough line up to get us into the playoffs.

Not if we have spotty goaltending and a bottom 4 on D like we do . Lots of teams have depth better than us imo.

If they Keep Little with Kane and Olli, it should mean more ice for Scheifele. Wonder if that sticks and who gets the spot between Ladd and Wheeler. Gotta figure it is Scheifele or Burmi.

Hard earned point but the Bruins definalty carried the play. Although he was bailed out by the post 4 times, I thought Pavs played solid. Maybe bring Montoya in for shootouts though.

I dont think you can unless there is an injury

Which is unfortunate

Phew. We need to keep that ready for when he decides to do it again.

That's definitely one of my favorite things with Burmi. Many people can play great D, stickhandle and things like that, but when that kid decides to knock someone down, it doesn't seem to matter who it is.

Does anyone else think we are running poorly constructed pp units:

There is no creativity down low on either.

PP unit number 2:

Kane and Jokinen don't fit together on the same unit as both bring the same elements to a pp i.e. net/slot presence. Both a triggerman and not set up men and the problem is is that neither passes well enough to get each other the puck in the slot. We need to place one on each pp unit.

1st unit, there is no slot scorer, Little and Wheeler don't scare opposing teams as shooters and as a result they take away our point shots. Ladd is a good net presence but once again an unbalanced unit.


My solution:

Play Scheifele with Ladd and Jokinin:

Ladd can win board battles and puck possesion and get to the front of the net. Jokinin can take faceoffs and get to the slot and let Scheifele distribute from the half boards.

Reunite Kane with Wheeler and Little. Little plays on the goal line and Wheeler the half boards while Kane roams the slot.
