Yeah, the line is Sweatt - Schroeder - Rodin.

I really hope that Ebbett is on the PK because he's been useless everywhere else and they need to get some contributions from him, because dammit is he ever bad at it. Arniel just amazes me...

Archibald needs to keep his feet moving, too much stop and go and gliding.

Schroeder line gets caught in deep after the puck bounces over some sticks, 3-on-2 results and a goal. Looked like Schroeder and Sweatt should've both recovered faster and not been so deep. No replays though so I could be totally off...

Tiranis, as someone who is still stuck at work and cannot watch the game, thank you.

Out of curiosity, how has Jeremie Blaine looked? I know he's not one of ours, but I was always a little confused as to why the Oilers let him walk before seeing his play in the pros.

The whole coaching staff should be fired. Bottom 5 PP and worst PK in the league, that's on them and nobody else. 3 PKs in that period and lucky to escape unharmed.

Not too bad now that I realize he's only 20, haha. Thought he was a lot older (and sucked for his age) so I guess that's a positive, somewhat. Haven't paid enough attention to tell you more than that.

I went to school with victor and mitch bartley, i guess Mitch retired not long after playing for the giants. Good to see his brother playing. Looks like hes doing well now, wont be an nhl player but looks like hes got a career in the ahl

Rodin... *sigh* I don't know what it is with him, he's just not in the game for long stretches. Sometimes the light bulb goes off and he's flying out there, creating things and then he's back to fanning on shots, making stupid passes, skating into offsides, etc.

Nice shift by Kassian, good puck movement then nice screen and a tip (I think) but the goalie makes a save.

And another PK... Ugh.

Archibald is a pretty good player in most aspects but he's not a great skater and it doesn't help that he insists on stopping and gliding constantly. Keep your feet moving if you want to make it.

Longpre is dumb. That's about all I got to say about him.

Schroeder really doesn't pull too many high risk moves or passes in the defensive or neutral zone. Should serve him well when he plays under AV as that tends to be a pain point for a lot of AHL stars. Sometimes maybe overly safe, but I guess that's better than being Longpre.

They might want to play Tanev 40 minutes with how this season has gone. Pretty much the only reliable D. Definitely stands out, even playing against Ellis and Blum.

I've seen the same thing from him, would say K-Conn has been playing a similar, safe game?

Archibald is certainly not a smooth skater but doing a pretty effective job of banging around in the offensive zone.

Better game for Sauve

Connauton is weird... he's not really an offensive D outside of his shot and an occansional rush, but he's also bad defensively with a lot of brainfarts. His puck moving is lacking even at this level and he's got very little offensive vision on a PP. Makes a lot of bad decisions. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan.

He's certainly getting a good number of hits but not sure how effective they've been. Often times he looks like he bounces off because he's coming at such a slow speed. I like what he can bring but that skating needs to improve for him to even make a dent at this level, let alone the NHL.

Thats the one concern I have with him. Kids very skilled, but very rarely will he show that skill. I personally would like to see him take more chances in the offensive zone, particularly in one vs one situations (though hes never been this type of player, more likely to slow the game down). Use his hands and his speed to catch defenders off guard more often

Regarding Connauton, somebody mentioned converting him to a forward and that might not be a horrible idea for his further development. He's at his best when he puts his head down and just skates down the wing. It would probably emphasize his strengths and cover up his weaknesses somewhat. I could see him being an effective 3rd or 4th liner at the NHL level.

I think it's a sure sign of a questionable offensive IQ.


Passing on Tatar was a huge mistake IMO.

I don't know if it's that. He just doesn't seem to have his head in the game at times. Maybe low confidence or some similar issues? I don't know... He just doesn't look like he's out there competing for it at the same level as Kassian and Schroeder are. I mean, he'll make a smart pass but not make it hard enough so it gets intercepted or he'll get into position to shoot but then fans on it, etc. That doesn't seem like an IQ issue.
