Moved him to center because he was called up when our roster was set and we just had their 4C void.

Kostopolous is 3 for 3!

We need a faceoff coach or something. We should hire Oates.

Additionally, I'm curious if DeBoer has any statistics to support his obsession with having forwards take offensive zone faceoffs based on how their handedness matches up with what side of the ice the faceoff is on. I hate seeing Elias take faceoffs ahead of Zajac when the puck is in the left faceoff dot.
i like deebo and thinks hes great for this team, but i do think hes a stubborn idiot sometimes. dont get me started with the pp. still, it is what it is.

I don't think he really runs the PP, though I do think he can probably do a better job running one than Matt Shaw.

He needs to be regularly played on the 3rd line. It was where he thrived during the season last year. He can do a shift or two up top but it isn't where he is the most successful. Zubs doesn't have the scoring touch like you said, but ya his body and ability to forecheck, I think the 1st line with him Loki and Kovy will be more successful then Zubs-Zajac-Kovy as it is pretty clear Zajac and Kovy don't mesh to well on one line.

I think the issue is that Poni doesn't HAVE ability. He was a 20-20 goal scorer in his prime scoring years getting top PP time thanks to a less-than-stellar Leafs team.

Kings blog taking a look at how their former players have been doing on other teams. In a nutshell: Loktionov good, Harrold meh. Though it occurred to me while reading that article that Harrold's numbers are probably skewed a little from spending some time on the 4th line.

From the looks of things, Henrique will be at LW today on top line with Loktionov and Kovalchuk and Ponikarovsky won't be practicing.

Yes, Yes, Yes Yes Pete . Thank you

WHOOOOOOOOOO it's like Pete Deboer isn't an idiot or something!

Henrique - Loki - Kovalchuk
Elias - Zajac - Clarkson
Carter - Gionta - Bernier
Barch - Sestito - Kostopolous

So we still need 3 more forwards though.

I'll be really happy if he gives Henrique a chance on wing more than one period of a game. I've been duped too many times already.

As bad as the 4th line looks, at least we know that won't be it for long. Loktionov should be back within a game or two it seems. Zubrus doesn't seem much more than a week or two away. That should push some people down to the 4th line (likely Gionta/Carter). At least that doesn't look like the 4th line we should be seeing for the rest of the year...
