Only saw parts of it - I would actually love Yashin other then the fact that he is lazy overpaid inconsistent..... (Talent is there though). That being said i would just love a Russian line since Russians are the coolest hockey players in my opinion
Aren't they both left-wingers, though? I'd be afraid that moving Brown to right wing would throw him off of his game. He's also the only top-6 that has been good in every game so far, so making him move would seem a little unfair to me. I'd like to see Frolov back on the top line. JR can bang in the corners and Cammalleri is actually fairly good at working in tight spaces.
Frolov and Cammy on a line seems to be a good fit...preseason looked promising...and i remember the two playing with each other occasionally in previous years....Cammy seems like a guy who can get open, and most importantly is always ready to fire the puck....seems like an ideal fit with Frolov and JR doing some extra pounding....wonder why the lines were shifted
??? There is no punishment to take anymore in front of the net! d-men can't crosscheck you anymore! They can only slash (just watch Toronto d-corp.... they just slash all the time).... and that is not a big punishment... even Perezhogin goes in front of the net!
Frolov is playing like it's the 'old' NHL. Right now, he's slowly skating around trying to play his old game to create some sort of wrap around opportunity or trying to draw a penalty. If he's going to draw multiple defenders then he needs to find the open man and get him the puck. Generally, he isn't doing that. He just works down low and tries the stuff the puck. The goalie and defenders are on to him and are just waiting for it.
If he doesn't start using the new rules to his advantage he's not going to do much in the 'new' NHL. He will generate some better scoring chances, once he starts skating away from people and looking for more space to operate in.
