.. Yeah I don't understand why seemingly 29/97 have to play together every game in the playoffs. The entire stretch run where they were the best team in the league they were apart. And the first few games of the playoffs they dominated the play (if not the score) with them apart. Unless there are injury based reasons that we don't know about then I don't see any excuse to continue playing them together at even strength.


I think they were put together in the LA series because McDavid's linemates couldn't get anything going with him.. (91 +56 ?) LA's system had him stifled.. LD's line was doing some damage but not enough.. the change worked.. at least one line (97 + 29 + ?) got something done.. and it was enough

Lot more problems now.. 18 was likely hurt before but even worse now after the leg shot by Hague last night .. 93 looks like 65% .. 91 is clearly not 100% probably still ribs broken and he pulled something (goin?) in an earlier game.. 56.. he's struggling to be effective .. so maybe 29 + 97 is the bandaid for now..

.. but as ineffective as some of the forwards have been the real killer has been mistakes and weak play in D-zone coverage, + consistently committing unforced turnovers.. they seem to do this more at home.. maybe trying to do too much, a riskier play, in front of a home crowd?

Not sure of the answer, but it starts with keeping the puck out of your end





McDAVID! Oh YEAH Baby!!

P. Chiarelli math.. T. Hall = A. Larsson, Yak= bag o'pucks (OK he got one right...) K. Russell = $4.1 M+NMC, G. Reinhart= M. Barzal + A. Beauvillier, J. Eberle = R. Spooner,
