Wow....neither Bernier nor Reimer would have made the high school honour roll with their percentages.

Another good 4th line shift...

@Yaknowwhat Which he has already done twice....you think it will miraculously change this time when he gets benched here?  He would be 4th line here...he has proven zero in his career this far...and would cry like a baby again.  Because if you give him an undeserved chance, you are undermining your own argument about Carlyle.  Pick which foot you want to eat...

@Cloud09 @newkb Not going to disagree....but which one will garner a healthy return (for now), and which one will cost assets plus retained salary to move?

@B_Leaf  He was good....but not Salming good.  Robinson made a lot of mistakes, but he had a hall of fame lineup around him to cover up for him.  Salming wasn't afforded that luxury.

@Burtonboy  His ability to control the pace and flow of the game was nearly unparalleled.  So smooth with the puck, and with an innate sense of where every player was, and was going.  His point totals didn't accurately reflect how dominant he was, and that is saying something.

Pittsburgh penciling in tonight in as a loss.  Perfect.

@dlb  Agreed - it will probably be Gardiner/Franson who goes.  We would probably have to pay (assets) to move Phaneuf, and retain salary.  Not very palatable when you have a trading chip like Gardiner (who has solid trade value), and the net salary difference between the 2 may be minimal by the time you factor in retained salary for Phaneuf.  Not the best situation...Phaneuf is worth more to us than to anyone else unfortunately.

@Yak  And I will turn this all around on you.  Will a completely gassed top 6 score more than a fresher top 6?  Absolutely impossible.  Not a chance in heck - ever.  So if you are rolling 4 lines for most of the game, you can shorten the bench later in the game as needed, or keep rolling 4 lines and give the top-9 a bit longer of a breather between shift, allowing for greater recovery.  Seems infinitely simple to understand.  It's kind of crazy to listen to the comments against playing the 4th line sometimes......  :) 

And we are talking a competent 4th line....this should be unquestionably understood.

@Yak  Absolutely correct.  A great 4th line won't win you anything in and of it's own.  However, it can prevent you from losing games if your top players are fresher at the end of the game.  That is the true value in running 4 lines.

@Yak This is definitely true to an extent.  What was the issue is that even when healthy, the Leafs had Orr and McLaren in the lineup last year.  So right off the bat, you have no hope of running 4 lines in any game.  And by the fact that Carlyle didn't play them, it showed he didn't trust them.  That was the big mistake last year......the game changed, and Carlyle didn't.

@T K O  Yep, you are right - their playoff performances of late leave a lot to be desired.  To that I will say that this is Pitts first year in recent memory where they are rolling 4 lines consistently.  They were much like the Leafs in the past - heavy reliance on the top-9.  And then the predictable happened....they were gassed come playoff time.

@Burtonboy  I was quite happy with most of the moves made this summer - unlike the previous summer.  Bringing in the right vets to create the right atmosphere.  I don't have that uneasy feeling like I did last year.

1 week, 1 day ago on Friday Mashup: Back to Back On Tap

Reply

@Burtonboy  You do need that.  I thought that last year was the time for Carlyle to experiment a little with all the injuries the Leafs had up front, but I will say better late than never.  Hard for the coach to trust or not trust when there is no body of work to draw from - save for playing 3-5 minutes with Orr/Smithson/McLaren.

@Burtonboy  Agreed.  Percy is promising, but probably not yet ready for full-time duty and heavy minutes in the show.  Learning the system quickly would become more important than ever
