If you mean Yakupov, it was because he scored, took off skating and then slide all the way down into his own zone.

I originally thought that, but I doubt two extra shifts would have killed him. If memory serves correct, he didn't play for a few minutes after the Ranger goal - maybe that's a possibility.

I have felt that the issue all along is that Markov and PK both like/need to be on the left on the PP. Markov is clearly more comfortable and effective on the left and Subban needs to be on the left to one time his shot. When PK is used on the right he is simply not as effective.

Diaz produces a point about every 9 1/2 minutes of PP time. Subban produces a point every 11 minutes of PP ice-time. Markov is around 8 1/2 minutes. Bouillon has played 34 minutes on the Powerplay and has yet to produce a point. Maybe it's time to try a forward back there, or double shift Markov, while giving Subban more of his PK duties?
I don't think it's a fair observation.
Markov is always playing with either Diaz or PK on the PP, so obviously, he will average more points per minute.
Diaz played 6games more than PK, all of which he spent with Markov. Since then, both PK and Diaz have been flip flopped between Markov and Bouillon, with PK getting a little more time on the first unit.

The real question is who played more often along side Markov on the PP. The one that did is likely averaging more points than the other per minute. Due to him having played 6 games more, I think it's obvious that Diaz is the one that played more next to Markov. So it's only normal for him to avg more pts per min than PK.

I don't have a problem with that though, at all. But I do think Subban should be used on the 1st PK unit.

Not sure if you guys know this but apparently Prust told Gaborik duringthe game he wasn't too worried with him on the ice (From the NHL.com recap of the game)

Until someone else can win faceoffs ?

He did well, but I don't see him being a "big" part of the team.

He's a warrior. You win with warriors.

When the games get tougher, you will see White excel.

White got benched for crossing the line but he did it because he wanted to protect his teammates. It wasn't being Matt Cooke stupid and trying to injure people. He has to know when to protect and when the game is in the teams hands, where it can't afford to give the other team life.

I feel like Therrien want them to play a more trapping style cause we don't score. I'm not sure I like the idea, feels like he's already pushing the panic button.

As far as Markov, there's no question that he plays too much. He seems tired and he keep throwing the puck on the other zone for no reasons.

White played on the PK for 2 games now. I think he could easily replace Armstrong before the end of the season.

Maybe I am way off base, but last time I checked this team forechecks a lot more than a Martin led team. We are more aggressive in the offensive zone, this by default makes this team a less trapping team than it has been in the past seasons.

I would like to see that when Gallagher returns, leave Armstrong in the press box

Once Gallagher comes back, Armstrong will sit.

White does everything better. White >>> Armstrong.

This would be my lines :

Bourque-Plek-Gio
Cole-DD-MaxPac
Gallagher-Galchenyuk-Eller
Prust-White-Moen

Kinda solid.

Yes I also think he looks like he is tired. I would take him off the PK
for a while. Subban can play more minutes, both on PK and PP. Although
last night he was still maybe recovering from the flu. And on the second of a
back to back.

On the PP we can double shift on of Markov, or Subban. Except in more
defensive situations, where you want a rested D. Bouillon is fine in that role.
Anyhow, the play on the points has largely been good. So no need to call
the hired gun (Kaberle), or (Weber).

It appears that Ryan White has redeemed himself.

How we change our minds so easily

Seriously, I'm glad for him. He's a young guy who plays with a lot of emotion and intensity, and isn't useless outside of his fighting.

Not lately. I think they were not forechecking that much against the Panthers. Even less against the Rangers.

Awfully lame of the Rags not to be humble in defeat. Kinda feeds into the image of them being pompous pretty boys though, I'm glad they're struggling this season.

Last night's lack of forechecking was to be expected though. On the road in the 2nd of a back-to-back, 3rd game in 4 nights. Not the kind of situation where you want to turn the game into a track meet.

To their credit, they got the puck through the neutral zone with ease all night. They just couldn't recover the puck - props to our dmen and Carey Price for handling the puck well.

Best lines we had iced in a long time IMO. We are still considered terrible on the main board though......

True, but I thought he meant a key player to our success, not a solid support guy.

We could go 48-0-0 this season and the main board would still say we're terrible. It's not the best place around to have an intelligent hockey conversation.
