...on second thought, let's recall Bellows.

He has 43 points in 180 games. He’s a fourth line player.

4th would be his best spot. 3rd line in a pinch.

MDC time. Ho Sang will not be happy.

Since it's LW, I'd guess it was either Dal Colle or Bellows. Both probably give you pretty much what you had with Ladd...a good shot and a question mark elsewhere.

Dal Colle on for extra work as well. Could be Johnston in tonight. Gionta appears in.

Dal Colle is a good replacement for Ladd's complete and total lack of speed

Jokes aside, Dal Colle earned it. Bellows is red hot but he's still got a ways to go.

Very true UIF. I hope MDC makes the most of it. Just good to see Bridge players get a shot. You have to keep the players honest and it's harder if you just use Johnston or Sbisa.

Looks like Luca Sbisa is also out of #Isles lineup tonight with Adam Pelech back in.



So it's probably Pelech, Johnston, Gionta in; Dal Colle and Sbisa out.

Noooooooooooooooo!

Do we still need to follow the Cappy plan of young players sitting in the pressbox. MDC is playing well do not make him sit.

With Ladd out indefinitely, I think Dal Colle will get in his share of games. I'd rather see him in the lineup tonight, but I don't know, coaches always seem to lean toward the familiar over something new and risky if they have a choice.

The Sound Tigers also played a day game yesterday, so maybe that has something to do with it. I get that Gionta also played in that game, but there's less of a choice with him...there's not really anyone else to fill in for Cizikas at center.

Center depth is something we probably haven't talked about a lot, but it's a huge drop-off from any one of the top four to Gionta, let alone if it's either Barzal or Nelson that goes down

Chief and I mentioned it. We seem good with wing and D depth. Center is a problem along with goalie.

I don’t hate the guy but he is what he is. Having two goals that were scored with seeing eye pucks gets you on the 2nd line? Neither of those pucks had any business going in. I get why Trotz is doing it to show players get rewarded for their effort but let’s not kid ourselves into actually believing this guy has any business being on the 2nd line.
- Cptmjl


In fairness, if Barzal scored that first goal on his back this thread probably would have poop themselves how amazing it was to get that much on that shot from that position

I think he's on the second line because of the injuries honestly. That said he has been good on both sides of the puck, the forecheck and hustled so I can see why he's being rewarded. For the time being of course until the injured players are back. Quite honestly He probably will be better than Ladd on that line. He was the other night

Yeah, but it's more fun to make jokes about Bumpsnaggle than to praise him. Jokes aside, I agree with you. He's been all you could ask for from a substitute forward seeing limited playing time.

I think he's on that line (if he even plays there tonight...) because Beau isn't getting it done, and if they're not willing to take a leap of faith on playing a prospect there, then you're kind of stuck with Ladd, with the choices getting less exciting from there...

That was a good read...I don't know if it's Staple being able to do more at the Atlantic, Trotz being a lot more interesting and in-depth about what he says to the press, or both, but we haven't had stories like this, that actually explain stuff to us, in ages.

Trotz seems to be really high on Leddy and attributes his struggles mostly to Leddy being willing to take a different approach to playing defense.

“I give him a lot of credit. He’s trying to improve as a player, he’s not settled in, thinking he’s been in the league a few years and he’s fine, leave me alone, I know what I’m doing. It’s not like that,” Trotz said. “He’s trying to engage, he’s taken to heart that he’s going to be one of the top defenders in the league. He’s got too much ability to just sit back.”
