The Third Line

Funny you say that.  Because, turns out, MSG listed the Larsson line as the 3rd line.  Guess they're still 4th line then, right?

😛 🍺

They are whatever anyone wants to call them.  The point of all of this is that Krueger, the guy who sets the lines, calls it the Larsson line.  Since he sets the line, he's the definitive source.  After that, everyone else is just labeling it to please themselves.

I cannot even fathom why it's being argued.

Well, my back and forth with @Taro T was tongue-in-cheek.  

Although they’re definitely the third line.

They're the 4th line, it's just that our 3rd line isn't good right now, and so they get used the 3rd most. 

Maybe we should just call them the checking line.

Uh,  suuuuuuure.   That's entirely on the TV partner.  And on all the Internet sites, too.  They've AAALLLLLLLL in on this conspiracy to undermine Krueger.

Do you pay full price for Reynold's Wrap or do you find Great Value's foil to give essentially the same quality when making hats? 😛

The cheap stuff doesn't work right.

Call them what you want but they were the line who got **** done against Florida. Good on them and good for the team we can rely on more than a couple players.

This year, Kyle seems to have an extra hitch in his giddy up, which is letting this line suppress chances like the Bergy version did last year. 

Having a hitch in your giddy up is actually a bad thing, usually a limp of some sort.

Okposo seems to have some extra giddy up.  His giddy up has been great, hitch-less even.

and yet, he was good in the OT and won it with a brilliant shoot out goal. Kreuger is simply doing what he said. Coaching the game, putting players in the best place to succeed, and adjusting ice time based on performance. Trust in Krueger.

Ok, but the point wasn’t that Mitts is bad.  The point was that he is on the line that plays the 4th most mins and is the 4th most important.  That’s just the truth.

Not going to disagree with that and Krueger has lowered their minutes as a result of their play. I was simply pointing out that he has skills and with the right coaching and mentoring he might still become what we hoped he would. he has things to relearn and unlearn from last year - as does Dahlin. Trust in Krueger!

This is from one scouting report on him but most say pretty much the same thing.

Offensive Game

Vesey has good size, and plays a power forward game.  He is a quick skater, with good acceleration and top end speed.  Vesey has a powerful stride which allows him to fight through checks and drive to the front of the net.  When he gets there, he has the soft hands to finish in close.  He can also stand in front of the net, provide a screen and get tip-ins and rebounds. From further out, Vesey has a hard and accurate shot, that he gets off quickly. He protects the puck extremely well, with good stickhandling, and uses his body as a shield to play the cycle game.  Vesey is well balanced and hard to knock off the puck or beat in a board battle.

Vesey’s playmaking ability is really coming along.  One thing he can do is change speeds effectively which he uses to beat defenders wide, or slow up and create some space for a passing or shooting lane.  He is a very intelligent player, who makes smart plays with the puck on his stick, and also finds ways to be dangerous without it.

Two way game

Vesey is also a good defensive player.  He again shows high hockey IQ, reading plays well and breaking them up.  When he creates a turnover, he is quick to find the streaking man, and start the transition game.  He also knows how to get his body into shooting lanes and is not afraid to block shots.  Vesey does a lot of the little things that coaches love. He was often given big responsibilities as a key member of the Harvard penalty kill.

 

Now I can't say I've seen any of this.

  Jimmy lies a lot doesn’t he.  Jimmy’s close to getting healthy scratched.
