Practice Report: 2/8/2019

Recommended Posts

Need to switch the 3rd and 4th pair D.  Unless they're showcasing them (granted, not exactly a Saks showcase), then Hunwick and Beaulieu need to sit.

CJ Smith is better than Sobokta, period. Our coach should know that. Also, why is Erod being demoted? Literally carried chunks of the game. Uhg.

This looks like a "rolling 4 lines" setup. Except I would definitely have Smith in for Sobotka.

Yep, it's time for "Left Dot Sobotka" to sit.

More importantly this practice should be a bag skate or solely focused on defensive coverage IMO. We were a one-way team last night.

 

This line juggling is obnoxious at this point.

That looks more like olympic team speed skating than NHL hockey. I had to zoom in to make sure it wasn't the same player photoshopped 3x.

Nope, the Sabrepede is part of tank lore.

So, the trend is to not number the lines, which could imply importance.  I get this, as it's the Millennial way.  I wouldn't necessarily call it a demotion in this instance.  You could technically call the Larry line the fourth line based on their role.  I can see Phil believing ERod being on a hot-streak and using him to try and jump-start Tage.  I see this as an attempt to get offense out of a third line.

So Phil came out of last night's game thinking, "you know who needs demotions, Erod, Smith, and Pilut"

What a dope...

Why do you think ERod is demoted? Because the order in which WGR posts the lines has been a great indicator of who gets the most ice time?

Well, in fairness to @LGR4GM, it's pretty likely that that line gets the least 5x5 ice time. 

OTOH, Erod will probably get enough ST time to be in the top 9 among the forwards.

Housley has pretty much unfailingly played Skinner Eichel and Reinhart a ton — regardless of their 5-5 linemates — and everyone else within a couple minutes of each other.

That's the extent of his hierarchy. Guys aren't promoted/demoted. They are moved around for chemistry purposes.

Put Smith in for Sobotka and we can talk. Maybe Nylander or Olof for Pommers.

I think I might have the wrong idea on lines so correct me where needed.

Line 1 is your best offensive threat. Average defensively.

Line 2 is you second offensive threat with the ability to defend longer stints in the D Zone.

Line 3 is who you put against the other team’s first line. Defensively minded with some offensive ability.

Line 4 plays against the other team’s fourth line. Little offensive threat and average defensively.

The more I think about it you want at least three lines who can score and everyone playing a two way game. I remember the chances of a fight came when those fourth liners were playing their five minutes of ice time per game.

Ya you’re right. Looking at the Amerks player stats there isn’t much to get excited about outside of Smith and Olof. At least for the forwards.

This actually implies that there was anything good about the tank.  Funniest, maybe?  Sadest, maybe?
