Get a lefty up there, nick or Ribs, and quick pass to load up Ovi's cannon as our go to play, that teams must defend first.

One of the PKers will be forced to come out on Ovi or stop that pass, or will limp out of the game. Have Ribs and Brouwer crash for rebounds.
One way we might get the opponents PKers to move is to have Ovie do his circle skating like he did in the waning minutes of the last Leafs game.

The firings under GMGM all came at the right time, if not almost too late, based on the play of the teams at the time and in some cases the admitted fact that the coaches had no idea what to do next.

That said, the problem seems to be the culture and lack of a clear, consistent plan from the GM regarding style and roster that can be handed down to (or informed by) the coach.

Either way, you cannot play any kind of hybrid or attacking system without solid D-men throughout your roster and a consistent goaltender to anchor things when attack mode yields the inevitable rush the other way. You MUST build from the goal out, not one or two forwards back.

To answer your question, because the goalie can see it and thus its an easy save.

Green rarely even moves along the blue to change the goalies angle. Yet you see guys like Erskine do it, on his most recent goal. We are not trying the screen. Why would he shoot?

Green is not shooting because that is not the play we are trying to run. The core of what we are trying to do is feed Brouwer and Ovi for one times.

I disagree, they are covering Brouwer. In fact, with our lack of quick passes and movement, he is the only one they have to cover. Green cant get a pass into Ovi's wheel house but once every 10 games. As a RH passer, the top right PKer can easily block that passing lane, and barely even has to move to do so. That pass lane is closed.

Green needs to slide towards left point to find a clear lane to Ovi. Still think a lefty there may be better - Poti perhaps.

I see some positives looking forward. As AO said we are still getting use to the system. Against the Pens we outscored them 2-1 on the 5 on 5. We had a PP goal. Our PK is something that needs definite improvement and it's our losing cause.

Per the twitter, Perreault and Hamrlik appear to be the healthy scratches for tonight's game.

So much for the old adage of the squeaky wheel getting the grease, unless in this case it's vaseline.

I really think we need to distinguish our "AO"s better.

I keep reading "AO" and assume Ovie, since he's the OG AO. Now we have a second AO and it just gets confusing.

Someone remind me why we wasted 3.5 on Hamr to bench him constantly under two coaches.

Can someone explain why Wolski is on the 1st line playing left wing?

No...because Wolski has been more productive than Ovechkin...

I might have gone with "Team Whose Best Scorer Has 0 Goals vs. Team Whose Best Scorer Misses The Empty Net".

Leafs are so afraid of the Caps' potent offensive attack that they are starting Scrivens.

Watching the Beebs beat the Sharks last night, I had to honor my fallen homie.

Well if the criteria for being a first line winger is to be more productive, or as productive in Wolski's case, as Ovechkin we aren't asking much. Both those guys are 2-2-4 in 9 games...

Yeah I would so like to see an Ovechkin-Ribiero-Ward line.

Play "goodhockey" boys. Doesn't matter if you win - just play "good hockey". We've gone from #hunterhockey to #goodhockey.
I love Oates and how calculated he is, but he probably could stand to be a little less circumspect (or what he thinks is circumspect) and a little more "just outwerk 'em."
