A faceoff winner to MTL

A guy who can play some puck that can win some faceoffs. Not a 4th liner (We have Ryan White who can win faceoffs if needed), but MTL needs a guy who can win some draws.

Even if the guy takes the faceoff and moves to the wing after.

~54% over the last 3 years minimum.

Why? just why?


dont go panic after a few losses. We knew the team would not be much better than last season. Starting 6-2 was a fluke IMO . Be patient with the team.

We need to sell not to add !! Sell all the gainey and gauthier crap (gionta , cole , moen ) even Markov it time now to trade him.. He has high value but will be useless for us this year ! Same for plekanec .. It time now to built the right way MB said it u built by the draft so let get some draft pick and built from there .. We already have a good core in subban , price , paciorretty, galy ,gorges , even Eller as our 3 line centre he's starting to become something good ( never to be a 2 centre but he will become a very good 3 centre like bolland became )

This isn't a panic move we've sucked at faceoffs for years, this is something that should have been addressed years ago.

This

The main issue with our centres are that they are all left hand shots, it makes it hard to win draws on the right circle.

Last few years, we had Halpern, Max Laps, and last year we had Noke, and now White is decent but the problem is he cant stay out of the box and if you sit him in the press box you have no right handed player that can take draws.

thats true, but making trades just to improve the face-offs aspect of the game is silly when the team is average at best.

I know you said not a fourth liner but Dave Steckle could be had for dirt cheap.

The only teams that worse than us at faceoffs are buffalo and Edmonton, we are far from average.

And the faceoff aspect of the game is a very important part of the game actually, one of the biggest reason we lost to Boston in the 2011 was because we couldn't win a faceoff.

To the OP, if he isn't a 4th liner, than who are you going? DD,Eller, Plek? We already have a log jam and centre.

Boyle has been a healthy scratch you're not going to get those players for him. You're more likely looking at a conditional 3rd or a 4/5th.

Nokalainen is ok at FO. Once he's back, we'll see.

The biggest problem I see is coaching. We need someone who can really coach Face-offs to the guys we have....especially AGally, give him as many tools as possible to improve. Pleks isn't terrible, he needs to get better and I'd rather he be taught the art of face-offs instead of trying to find replacements.

But if you really need to make a move, get someone like Belanger in EDM, or Boyle, or Steckle. I am sure they could all be had without giving up too much.
