    Apart from ultra fast duo Ehlers and Connor, I fail to see many other Jets that are faster than Laine on open ice, which is the case with 3-on-3 and substantially different than with 5-on-5.

    Laine has a very deceptive stride which is kind of antithesis of that of Wheeler or Ehlers. That's why Laine can look slow even when he did beat MacKinnon's time on skills competition and didn't lose a lot for Puljujärvi. MacKinnon & Poolparty are seriously fast skaters.

    Laine needs a lot more explosiveness for his first steps, but on open ice in typical 3-on-3 situations he is faster than average Jet, and Jets are pretty fast on average.

    Ideas for Jets in 3-3OT

    Get possession. Then follow these 4 steps:

    1) Don't shoot wide moments later, particularly if you have teammates that have been on the ice for 45 seconds already

    2) Don't shoot wide moments later, particularly if you have teammates that have been on the ice for 90 seconds already

    3) Don't shoot wide moments later, particularly if you have teammates that have been on the ice for 120 seconds already

    4) Don't shoot wide moments later, particularly if you have teammates that have been on the ice for 180 seconds already

    Following these 4 steps will insure a record in OT that jumps from a putrid 1-6, to a reasonable 4-3.

    Of the 7 OT games that were decided before the shootout, the Jets played firebrand hockey in 6 of them. The only time they've played for possession was against the Sharks last week. The result was a victory.

    A .500 record in those other 6 games gives the team an extra 3 points & overtakes Vegas as the top team in the west.

    Looks like the Jet's executed very well on the 3 on 3 against Vegas, it was really a matter of luck either way. Jet's were not outplayed --and I think the Jet's hit the post. I still think they need to refine their strategy a little bit.

    Good hard fought game by both teams !!!

    Don’t deploy Buff in OT and after gaining possession...

    Use Morrissey and Myers if you want a D man out there. No more Buf in OT. He is selfish and irresponsible and refuses to change when he should.

    Typical game winning goal in OT against the Jets - Buf completely ineffectual, watching the play, as the other team scores the game winning goal. Maurice, with the long term memory of a bee, can't wait for the next OT to put the big man out there due to all of his success on wide open ice. I mean, the best players in the world on wide open ice are the really big, relatively slow ones, right? Certainly not fast, skill players with mountains of stamina. The bigger the better, right? Like if you had the biggest guy in the league, that would be the guy to put out there, right? And leave him out for as long as he wants, right? Like, let him stay out for 2 or 3 minutes if he wants, who cares? After all, it's all just a coin toss in overtime (say some). Players, system, strategy don't matter at all. :help:

    wheeler always takes too long of a shift and doesnt change when he has chances then stands around and he isnt smart with the puck in cycles and takes dumb shots. hes a on the rush drive the net player that tries to play a fancy perimeter game all imo of course. i wld rather players like laine shief armia ehlers connor even roslovic going before him

    Staple Buff's butt to the bench in OT. That alone would make your success at 3 on 3 improve.

    Buff's problem is he always tries the big end to end rush to do it himself, ends up coughing up the puck, is now too tired to get back, finally gets back, now the other team is in our end playing keep away, Buff at this point is close to cardiac arrest because he's been on the ice for 2 minutes now so it's basically a 3 on 2 , and eventually the other team scores.

    Jets are not good at the all star 3 on 3 hockey ot.

    Playing Buff in ot has been killing us as he is super slow and always get caught in the other team's end giving the other team lots of breakaways and odd man rushes.

    Maurice should only play our faster skilled players in ot.

    Agree completely with the sit Buff crowd. Morrissey, Myers, and Trouba should all be ahead of him for 3-on-3, not to mention the plethora of capable forwards.

    1. Change when you have the opportunity.

    Why are the OT questions never posed to PoMO via the media? (or do I miss these). It seems that no one is calling out the coaching directly, other than posts on the internet. I wonder if PoMo actually gets the message (obviously not because appeared Buff was out there in OT for 3 or more minutes).

    They play quite well as a 5 man unit and just haven’t figured out how to cover that extra ice where the 2 players are missing.

    Like last night, why let Perron skate out untouched to get his shot away. They’re too passive and collapse back a little too much allowing the play come to them.

    Just hope nobody at the NHL offices ever vote to change the playoff overtime format to 3 on 3, otherwise the Jets are doomed.

    Don't really get why OT needs to be 3v3 anyway, wouldn't 4v4 make more sense and have it closer to an actual NHL hockey game. It really should be 4 minutes 5v5, 2 minutes 4v4 sudden death with a T after 6 minutes if no one scores.

    Buff gets caught on the ice for too long, especially in OT. Last night was case in point. Maurice really has to roll the lines better. Buff just refuses to get off the ice sometimes it's really frustrating.

    It's pretty straight forward. Get off the ice when you can. Don't shoot wide with the 3 players in deep and tired. And don't hit the post. Other than that it is all pretty random and in the long term we probably end up 50/50. Big picture I see all these loser points as little extras that are padding our point total rather than missed points. In past seasons we would have been shut down late and get nothing. Now we are battling back and getting points in games we never would have in the past.

    Buff - Ehlers - Laine
    Buff - Little - Laine

    Let's go with what worked previously.

    Buff is our fastest skater therefore he should play the full 5 mins of OT

    Ehlers I agree with - add 2 more with some speed.

    Half of the 3 on 3 game is possession - the other half is speed / open ice.
    Offensively, with speed you find the open ice - without it you get cornered or boxed in.
    Defensively, with speed you take away time and space - without it, you watch.

    It does. And so too do the original rules (and their interpretation) applying to goalie interference.
