In-Game Differences With New Coach?

- End of Hecht in the top 6?
- Leopold never dresses again?
- Vanek smiles?

I'm intrigued to see the effect this has in vanek, more minutes? Less getting beat up in front of the net?

Pominville off the point on the powerplay.

Yeah I'd like to see this. They just don't have enough forwards down low and we are loaded with power play defensemen

VHP as a PP unit with Ehrhoff/? on the back end
Grigs either gets sent down (preferably) or gets a chance to play with some decent talent for at least part of a game(Grigs-Enzo-Staff line?)
Myers-Regehr and Myers-Leo are never again used as pairings once sekera's back

It'll be interesting to see if Vanek gets put on the PK. Maybe we will see 50 goals from him yet.

Jochen Hecht is not in the top-6. He's 8th among forwards in ice time. Top-9? Yes. Top-6? No.

Ehrhoff on the first PP where he belongs.
Grigorenko given more chances to succeed.

Why do people want the team's top forward blocking shots with his shins, his skates, and the rest of his body? I've never understood the fascination with people wanting Vanek on the PK. Because he may score a shortie once in a blue moon? Great. Lotta consolation that'll be when he breaks a bone blocking a shot.

Leino roaring back when he is given more liberties.



If he just was healthy.

He's had his shifts there.

This should be: "Leino all of a sudden becomes healthy."

At this point, who hasn't on this roster? Maybe Scott and McCormick and Ellis. That's about it.

I'd argue the guy they waived this morning deserved it more this year than Jochen.

I'll be shocked if we don't see an immediate jump in energy, attitude, and to use a word I hate, "COMPETE".

Not exactly campaigning for it.

Just said it would be interesting.

He was on the ice for goal-prevention. In that regard, he's been fine. Far be it from me to stare down the HF echo chamber, though.

I'd say he hasn't, but that's me. I have no gripe about Hecht as a serviceable 3rd line center. He's no longer an effective two-way player, though, and not good enough defensively to make up for that.

And yet, for one reason or another, teams aren't scoring with him on the ice. Perhaps there's a reason for that. Perhaps it's a wonderful coincidence. But that's what the numbers are saying.

Certainly his QoC has nothing to do with that

6th of 11 forwards in qualcomp (min. 10 games)
2nd lowest percentage of O-zone starts to Kaleta

He's not good in the offensive end, but he's been effective on a defensive line with Ott.

It's disingenuous to set the 10 game minimum when 8 games counts as half of a full season played .

Even so, I have him coming up further down the list. Are we checking different sources?


He's not a defensive liability like a good number of our forwards are, but he's hardly the driving force behind defensive success on his line.

Anyway, that's ancillary to the main point, which was that Hecht in a greater role would not help the team win games as much as other players on the roster. I feel fairly comfortable in that assessment.
