So is KSK slotted into the pp1 tonight or do they wait and give him some practice time with the unit first?

hopefully he's on the first unit, our regular season games aren't super important so get him in there as soon as possible, real games are better than practice.

I would think his stats get him on the pp1, but it might not turn out that way.
I do think that its the Caps priority to win the division and win their divisional games down the stretch in the process. I don't think they are going to do a lot of monkeying around with the lineup.

Shattenkirk will get Niskanen's pp time to start, with 2 coming off getting dinged.
As BMac said, there are egos to sooth and it would be interested to know how attached Niskanen is to that pp toi. Orlov's time on the pp is done for now barring injury

I think it would be more beneficial for Shattenkirk to sit in the stands and watch before jumping into the sophisticated system.

we're playing @ MSG, it wouldn't surprise me if we finish with 0 minutes of PP time

We have 7 legit defensemen now. Please don't rush any defensemen back.

I kind of expect a distracted, out of rhythm loss. 3 lines are juggled. A new guy on D.

Might be a thing, but that's just sort of what it feels like

Need Wilson to stir s*** up.
Sha-k needs to learn to hate the Rangers quickly, haha.

Hope the team gives Shattenkirk a good reason not to play for the Rangers next season.

For tonight it's probably going to be:

Alzner-Carlson
Orlov-Niskanen
Schmidt-Shattenkirk

Not sure what it's going to be going forward.

Thats the forgotten consequence of the ShatnerKirk trade, Sanford is gone, so Vrana gets to show his stuff.

Thats a tall order given we only have a 5 pt lead on the Pens and our remaining schedule is moderately difficult while theirs is a joke. I think the priority should be trying to stay healthy. If we are healthy for the playoffs, even if we are a middling seed, look out.

I'm expecting a very discombobulated game.

And please put Vrana with Kuzy!

I guess I don't see it. Pens have Dallas and Chicago back to back on the road this week as a for instance. The Caps have a home heavy schedule. The Pens less so.

Tall order or not, they need to win the division. To become a a "middling seed" they will stumble into the playoffs
