*Buzzsaw* Posted November 6, 2019 Share Posted November 6, 2019 (edited) Yeah, the big Stars are playing well, yeah, the goalies are excellent. But one of the best things about this team is the 3rd and 4th lines and the change in the 5/6 D pair. As far as I'm concerned, Brandon Sutter has delivered 100% to this point on his comeback season after a serious injury. He is driving the 3rd line, which I believe is one of the best in the league. He is also playing lights out in the PK, and is a continued threat to score everytime he steps on ice shorthanded. Same applies to Jay Beagle... maybe not as many goals as Schaller, but again, he is driving the line, controlling the play and making his line a threat to score. He is also lights out in the face off circle on the PK, and his timely sticks and zone clears are one of the key reasons we have such a highly rated short handed team. Finally there's Jordie Benn... who is the absolute opposite of flashy... but you can count the number of mistakes he has made all season on the fingers of one hand. Its the furthest thing from fire wagon hockey, but it is effective, with solid physical play and 99% correct puck handling decisions in his own zone. Yeah, the addition of JT Miller and Tyler Myers has been a big improvement. (well, maybe not Myers in the Blues game ) but the addition of Benn on the 5/6 and the fact we now have Brandon Sutter and Jay Beagle healthy and playing to their potential is a huge part of the team's success.
