    Probably Hiller having the audacity to suggest they try something different

    Put Muzzin out there with Rielly and kick Kadri off.

    Teams would have to respect Muzzins slapper, Rielly can do his quick wrister on net, Matthews would be a little more open for his snipes because teams respecting Muzzin, Marners slap pass thing thrown in also.

    They need more options as right now it's all Marner throwing muffins on net.

    That's a good plan, I also think they need to move JT to the front of the net from the side of the net. JVR played in the front of the net and was far more effective than JT has been. I think JT has the skills but he needs to position himself better.

    It's stupid that just because the team is winning games, some seriously inept personnel get incredible job security.

    Don't disagree at all. But those guys are pretty rare. And yeah, we really need to look at changing the way our PP operates.

    Question: why do we play better 5 on 5? Just doesn’t make sense! Seriously I think any penalty you should be able to decline it.

    0/4 tonight so far if we don't win, the PP cost us a win.

    Babs needs to give the team a proper motivational speech to turn this ship around.

    And a .500 record since nylander came back. Or near .500. Not too good.

    Our enforcer is about as effective as a 90 year old unarmed woman in a wheelchair.

    This!

    Has been said a million times already this year. Still can't believe why they have such strict roles assigned when they all can pretty much handle the puck and shoot. It's almost like watching a replay every game.

    It's funny how when occasionally the formation collapses or gets shuffled around, the unit becomes much better. There is too much skill on that unit to be constrained by designated roles.

    This is Hiller’s 5th year as the main PP coach (1 with the Red Wings, and his 4th with the Leafs). 3 of those seasons his PPs have been top 2 in the league, so clearly he’s had success in the past. But our PP is indeed crazy bad this year (other than the start of the season), especially given our MASSIVE amount of talent. If Hiller can’t figure out a way to turn it around soon (next 5-10 games), we should let him go so the guys have time to learn a new system before the playoffs.

    What was JT's role on the Islanders? Was he the net front guy or was he the puck distributor?

    They clearly need to stop running three centermen out on the powerplay. Just dumb it down and spread around the talent a little bit. Use Muzzin more as a point shot (which isn't a big tool) and maybe see if Hyman can be a net front guy. Cause we don't have that, just Kadri and Tavares getting in each other's way.

    Switch marner and Nylander. Makes the second unit stronger and gives you another shooter. Right now nobody respects Marner. Heck switch kadri and marner. Marner is so predictable

    I don't get it. They still look dangerous, they're still getting consistent man-advantage goal mouth scrambles. They're just not going in. You give the puck to a combination of Matthews/Kadri/Tavares within 3 feet of the crease, you'd think one of them gets it in at least a quarter of the time.

    He's kryptonite you guys better trade him :naughty:. Seriously what has happened to team since he's arrived? Has there been any other changes?? Was the team just over achieving before? I'm kinda shocked to be honest I expect them to be much better.
