Tocchet said in his post game presser (last night) that Hronek is here and working out every day.  Said he’s still week to week.

Hronek will carry OEL on our second pairing. We will sign Livingston to play with Hughes. Myers on the bottom pair with Wolanen. That’s a very good group. Elite puck movers in our top two pairs and Wolanen is pretty good too. Myers and OEL can just focus on the defensive parts of the game. 

You represent everything I hate in a Leafs fan.

I think Brisebois has jumped ahead of Wolanin when he agreed to a new contract. Currently Wolanin is still a UFA at the end of the season, GB is signed for the next 2 years. Frankly on the Defensive side of the game GB is the better option IMO.

Man, when is Hronek gonna play??  Would be nice to finally see him and Hughes anchoring the blue line.

Word is somewhere around March 16-18th.

Figured I should come here to check on if anything has been heard about his injury status or if there's a plan to check him out here in Vancouver, but also I did this little comparison. As noted below, Hughes is our best D in a lot of categories, but Hronek stacks up near the top in most of those same categories, plus as good or better in some others.

I haven't been keeping up with all the pages, and I know the argument about where we are, why trade picks, etc, etc, etc. I wanted to look more at how to quantify Hronek and where he fits in our D. If someone wanted to do this with advanced stats, or with other D as comparison, feel free. It's just a visual.

Lots of green in those top two lines, and Hronek compares pretty favourably to Hughes. Strong shooting %, does get involved physically, and of course his offence. 

 

Of course, the Chaos Giraffe (I don't hate him that much) is not the best of the bunch.

 

Just to sum it up a little better, I graphed it out (not weighted, but good enough).

Hronek actually comes out a little ahead of Hughes adding up across multiple categories. Hughes is better at what he does of course, but just showing that Hronek is no slouch.

 

But if you're dead set on being angry about the draft picks, the overall price, or whatever, then it is what it is.

Yup. Hughes will anchor our first pairing (he’s been amazing with pretty much AHL level partners). Hronek will do the same for our second pairing. One of those two super D men will almost always be on the ice, and in the most critical parts of a games they will likely be out together.

Is it me or does the timeline keep changing?

Not sure, we play games on the 16th, 18th and 19th, I expect to see him in there somewhere, unless we get an official update.

Lots of conjecture Alf but that is what CDC is all about; other than Myers I like your D man setup. Pretty sure Myers will be traded or bought out in the off season to free up cap space. If they are so lucky to sign Livingstone; then I could eventually see a D lineup like this:

 

Hughes - Hronek

OEL - Bear

Livingstone- Dermott

Brisebois/ Wolanen - Juulsen

 

All conjecture on my part as well but I think I could live with that till they can move on from OEL

Hronek with Hughes is instantly one of the best D pairings in the league. Hughes with Juulson, Bear, and other much lesser D than Hronek is fantastic. Hughes is an amazing player. We want Tanev Back! Benning. :mad:

Absolutely Hronek becomes Q's partner.  If they are able to sign Livingston, they may not need Bear.

 

Hughes -  hRonny

OEL -  Livingston

Brisebois -  Bear

Wonlanen -  Juulsen

I strongly suspect they'll try this out. He's the #2 RHD Hughes has needed for a long time.

Way better to have Hronek and Hughes apart.. Both are  so talented and Vancouver will have 2 very good parings..

The 3rd pairing should handle 15 mins per game....

1. Hronek -- _____ Maybe Graves 6'5 -225lbs LD

2. Hughes - _____  Maybe Livingstone 6'3 RD -- Hope Allvin can sign this top college player after his college playoffs in March sometime..

3. OEL.  _____  Bear 25 RD  - Johansson RD -23  --Juulsen 25 RD ---- LD-- Burroughs - Brisebois

I like your lineup better. I don’t see Bear as a top 4 d man on a contending team. He has the ability to move up if needed. Camp could reveal some d-side surprises in the fall.
