    (and it sure drowned out Sprong's horrible giveaway just before)
    Regular season Vrana-Kuzy-Sprong can get away with the irresponsible play but come playoffs when you can't buy a goal you're gonna need defense to keep a 1-goal lead (let alone the dreaded 3-goal lead); I'm assuming Lavi is trying (to limited success) to drill into their heads that D is just as important as O

    Hope we can go back to another stretch of giving up 1 or 2 a game like a few weeks ago

    I almost feel bad for PHI, they're lost right now in many ways

    When Wilson comes back I’d rather have Sprong over Panik. Doubt it happens though

    Agreed, normally I’d take the safer defensively responsible guy, but Sprong scoring and the well being dry with Panik....Sprong needs to stay in somewhere for now.

    Another way of looking at Sprong vs Panik: Sprong fits well on the 2nd line and produces there, especially if the whole line is defensively sheltered. Panik doesn't really fit on the 3rd line and drags its production down. Panik's best stretch here was when he was 4th line due to the awesome Kovalchuk experiment.

    It was years that Eller drags the 3rd line and everyone on it to mediocrity. When Wilson is back i'd sit Hathaway not Spront nor Panik.

    Exactly, like how he dragged Connolly down from his 30 goal pace to a mere 20 goal pace so he could sign for a mere $3.5M with Panthers, only to be waived for producing nothing there.

    You cannot break up that 4th line right now. Realistically it is Sprong or Panik who will sit.

    The Philly goaltending curse is just crazy. Hart was supposed to be the second coming of Ken Dryden or something. And Elliott, oof...

    I wouldn’t break up the fourth line at all, they’re playing with some solid chemistry now. Hagelin is just about to start his scoring streak

    Sit Panik for a bit when Wilson and Eller are back. Put Sprong on Eller's wing. And give them some time to gel. Could be a dangerous line.

    If Panik is going to be benched for Sprong which it seems lots of us here want. Is Panik worth waiving? He has a big cap hit for a guy not playing

    Panik won't be benched. Laviolette appears to have little faith in Vrana, Kuznetsov, and Sprong defensively and seems to love Eller-Panik and either Sheary or Oshie as one of his shutdown lines. If we could only combine Sprong and Panik into one player that would be ideal.

    Could you move Wilson down and keep Sprong on the top line. Wilson would add more offensive jump to the third line, and still be defensively responsible.
