He should be playing over Byron at least ffs
I do agree with this. Lekhonen brings more than just speed atleast. But again Byron has an A on his jersey for some unknown reasons
even more reason to trade Tatar
I liked Tatar a lot the past two years.
But I must say, I find it surprising that an NHLer, a consistent point producer in the NHL, has such trouble stick handling some times.
What is up with that??
is he injured - from that time he blocked a slap shot with his bare hand?
he has consistency issues, that's usually mental/mindset related (loses confidence etc.)
i brought it up in the injury thread, it sounds like it but I can't find anything official that says he is.
Its a strange situation to be sure. Don't get why he's scratched. I haven't heard anyone say he's hurt.
He has to be injured
With all the tired legs...he should of at least played on the back to back. Is he in the dog house?
Somewhat strange that they haven't announced it thought.
Is Lehkonen injured? Any luck finding anything? I'm replying to your post from March 11th. But Lehkonen played on the 13th, yet hasn't played since.
If not I think Lehkonen-Evans-Armia could be a good 4th line.
I don't know what's going on.
i wonder if MB is waiting on a trade deal to go through that involves him?
He was such an important player during the last two years. No, not an offensive force but he did chip in a lot more than what Evans and Byron are producing. I don't agree with him being scratched game after game.
we do need a D and the likely only way we can get decent help is if a body or two are going the other way. I don't get why this coaching staff doesn't like Leks or Mete and think they are making a mistake but if MB is going to hire this staff for next year then might as well trade these guys if they don't fit in his system.
First star of the game for me. Always good on forecheck and backcheck, relentless pressure and always so good on the boards.
He should never be taken out of the line up.
With a team that is speed challenged, it is pure foolishness, to have one of our best skaters out of the line-up. Other teams must look at us and smile at our ineptness.
Is he healthy at all?
Is he practicing?
DD said he's good for Friday but he hasn't committed to a lineup. Can't imagine him going back to Tatar so I expect to see Lehkonen.
I'd hope he goes like for like (sort of) and Lehks draws in for Evans on Danault's wing.
I really hope so too, To me Tatar is done as a hab, would much rather see lehk next to danault and have them try to shut down Connor, hes really not that big, we can hammer this guy
I'd be shocked if he didn't. Danault line doesn't provide offense but is great defensively. Tatar sucks defensively, doesn't skate fast and is soft as butter.
Because he gets more respect in the locker room than he gets here. What a strange concept that is.
Lehkonen played well in his first two playoffs so I am sure he'll take the opportunity and make the most of it.
