Save that 20 min for pleks and Gomez k? They play PP, PK and even strength and only sometimes get 20 min a game.

I kinda want to see what he could do with Pleks and Cammalleri, Cammalleri is capable of playing RW (he scores most of his goals from this side anyways).

Mind you I know if we pull him off the G&G line that line will likely disappear again, but I'd probably try Pouliot there to see if that can spark him up again.

Don't see an issue here. He gets his shifts and PP time. Are you suggesting that the double shift him or play the PK?

He is getting 16 to 17 minutes a game. I think he is getting enough ice time, especially when compared to the kind of ice time Eller is getting on a regular basis. Don't see why MaxPac would need to play an extra three minutes a game.

If we trade AK we won't make the playoffs.

Then we'll find out about the downside of having a core of midgets.

At this point, Max is a nice complementary player with some potential, his ice time is about right.

I think he's getting a little better each game and definitely fits well on his current line.

I remember that thread about us not giving markov enough ice time when he came back from injury this season.

Good times.

AK doesn't need to go. Martin needs to stop playing games with him. It's completely moronic, it's like he has a vendetta against him.

You know he's a fragile player.
About 15 games in or so, he's arguably our best forward. What does Martin decide to do?..Let's bring him down to the struggling 2nd line and make him play with Gionta/Gomez for a couple of shifts.
After a few shifts of nothing from that line, Martin has the brilliance of promoting a very undeserving Gionta to the 1st line and give A.Ko Gomez+Moen. Now that is how I like to see our best young players treated!
Surprisingly, that 2nd line lead to nothing. I really don't know anybody here that would have predicted this...
So, after making sure A.Ko is real cold and now back in low confidence zone, Martin decides to give him a few shifts with Gionta/Plek, you know, just to tease him.
Eventually, Martin decides to drop him down to the 4th line. Again, shocker, AK doesn't create much...
So, he gets promoted for doing nothing and he's given another chance on the top 6.
But, that's just another simple tease because Martin scratches him for a game.
And now he enjoys psychologically completely screwing with him..telling him ''I don't know Andrei...it's 17h, we play at 19h...I don't know if I'm gonna make you play tonight. I'll let you know at 18h50 okay?...just chill for now''..


Martin has completely destroyed AK this season. Perhaps AK would have gone onto a cold streak had he remained on the top line, maybe he'd have the same amount of points, but the bottom line is Martin took a completely hot player, arguably our best forward at the time, and placed him in a very unfavorable position. He, in no way, thought about how Andrei would react and to me, that is a huge problem. If Martin didn't expect AK to take some steps backwards from playing with Gomez/Moen, then I have to wonder if Martin knows his players.


As for MaxPac, he doesn't need more ice time.

This thread is the opposite of what I thought it'd be about. The title made it sound like you wanted him to go back to Hamilton.

That being said, I think Pacioretty has been doing very well so far with the ice time he's getting. Too much ice time could very well burn him out quickly and expose him to more mistakes too, though.
