Right!

 

Like controlling climate change via carbon emission reduction strategies! Or reducing taxes! Or getting Jessica Allen rightly fired! Or making Tryamkin the captain! Or impeaching Donald Trump!

 

Oh wait..

The can of worms had just been open .....

I agree. It's bright and it's bold. 

Even opponents are in awe.  Colorado re-tweeted this comment by Rycroft who is part of the broadcast team on Altitude TV.

If he had won the face off, did he have the legs or speed to compete with McKinnon?

 

nope 

 

MCKinnon blew by him like he was standing still, Bo actually peeled off in the opposite direction

 

 

don’t get me wrong, I like Bo

 

the underlying issue is we simply did not field our jest players. You play to win

 

you play Hughes over Tanev and EP over Bo. EP is responsible defensively and has speed to match up with McKinnon 

 

 

 

Do either Hughes or EP40 have the strength to contain Mac if he skates outside around them? 

Im befuddled.

If EP or Hughes kept a good gap they have the agility to deal with the first move.  Once MacKinnon gets a head of steam pretty much anyone is screwed

Lol. It's not like Bo and EP are both incapable of covering MacKinnon. The guys got beat on one play because they weren't ready. This in depth analysis is silly. Either play or players could have just as easily got us a goal. We're talking 3on3 overtime. A stupid concept to begin with that has very little in common with real hockey.

Might I add. The reasoning for starting Bo was to exploit Mac's low faceoff %. 

Win the draw, keep possession, low risk plays then run our EP's scoring line trio for the win. 

It was a low risk method that ended up not panning out. 

But I don't disagree with that. 

 

It would be much higher risk if EP's trio is matched up against Mac to start then lose puck possession.

MacKinnon was not the one taking the face-off but Compher - through 3 periods Compher was 45% (5 for 11).

And how did that work out? If he loses, McKinnon skates around him. If he wins he can’t skate as he was gassed 

Captain hindsight... 

If he wins possession, let Miller go for a skate, while he changes on the fly, happens all the time... He was there for the draw, nothing more... 

 

Green played the odds... was it 26 of 29 draws, or something close to that. Tell me it's not favourable odds. Had he put Petey out to take the draw, you'd be saying, he was an idiot for not using the player, who had won about 90% of his draws during the match, regardless of how tired he was... and except for the last 4 minutes Petey had hardly burnt the house down on the night...

 

I want see Petey as much as you do, and he is our most exciting player by far, but in OT starting possession is everything, as most drives ends with an attempt on goal... Just like it did with McKinnon...

Did anyone else catch when Bieksa said they pushed for the jersey too...seems the majority prefer it and would like it to stick around.

swap Ericksson for any of the below.. including Fantenburg

Roussel probably isn't 100% yet, but when he reaches 60% it should be enough to supplant Loui

I for one think the lines look good and focus on that instead of bashing LE. His position will sort itself out when Rousell, Motte and Ferland returns. 
 

Especially like the 3rd line with Baer - Gaudette - Leivo. That’s legit! We still need 1-2 top 6 wingers and a top pairing RD imo but then we’re on our way...
