    Bruh. Can you at least please re-post my question to @struckbyaparkedcar in the new thread if you're really going to kill the old one as soon as I ask it, so it can't be replied to?

    It doesn't adjust automatically, but I can report no major changes, other than Sheary-Eichel-Reinhart looking a bit better at 60%.

    Either way, don't change the lines.

    Yeah, it's the checkbox under "aggregate."

    Risto is fine on the PP but Okposo needs to be fired into the next universe

    Do you see that we currently have the 2nd best Top PP unit in the league? Until they start struggling, I wouldn't change a thing. That said, I'm excited to see Dahlin on the PP and to see him get the chance for some easier points.

    Okposo is such a terrible hockey player. I’ve never seen someone turn the puck over so much and constantly get rewarded. He’s a third line player who should never see the top unit these days.

    If the PP ain't broke, don't try and fix it.

    It’s not the #1 PP so there’s room for improvement

    They do. It's a lot like Superman 4, where Superman hurls the missiles into the sun.

    BuffaloGooner needs to re-watch the HF Boards Sabres training video.

    Two players I'd like to see Botterill go after:

    Chris Tierney
    Colton Sissons

    I can see a future roster with Berglund shoring up a 4th line as the center, and ERod playing wing on a higher line. Might need a 3C, a la Bonino.

    If we're talking the future, I could see Asplund being that perfect 3C.

    Could post this in the injury thread, but with a ~10-day west coast trip upcoming, team likely departing after the COL game: Other than Wilson,
    1. Whom should be healed in time for that trip?
    2. Whom do you leave behind to continue rehab / treatment / training?
    3. Whom do you want to see replaced off the current healthy roster? Or do you "let your chips ride"?

    ARI, VGK, SJS, LAK, ANA 5 games in 8 days upcoming.

    Not sure why. His skill set and hockey IQ are just perfect for a winning team's 3C.

    You'd better - with 3 games under the belt, one bad one will send us to the basement :)

    On a related note, Phil just took someone off PP1. The bad news: it's Sheary, not Okposo. Come on, Phil.

    We do need to use PP2 more to keep ice times down but I think the personal is wrong. Skinner has never been good on the PP and Okposo is proving hes wrong for the PP.

    I am interested to see how PP2 looks but Thompson hasnt impressed me with his passing yet it may be just what he needs to get going.

    I understand people wanting Dahlin on the first pp, but putting Risto and Okposo in the same category is so false. Risto has for many seasons been efficient on the powerplay and has a creative spark. Okposo has been divested of almost all offensive ability and is incapable of protecting the puck and loses every puck battle.
