    Rask is also much better than Jarry.

    Why is Sully saying Rii is a game time decision?

    He's not even a starter...

    He should go in in place of POJ who has fallen off some...

    I would sit POJ for a game.

    Petts - Letang
    MM
    Riikola - Ceci

    Nothing against Joseph, but Riikola was playing really well and its good for rookies to get some down time. Let them observe a bit.

    Also if Riikola comes back strong, he could be a good trade chip for a bottom 6 upgrade.

    Also POJ has had his ice time go down a lot the past 2 games.

    He is pointless and a -5 in the last 5 gp

    True. What was Rii's injury?

    Rii isn't a starter true, but he is above POJ on depth chart. At least I think he is.

    What is the pens d depth chart 1-8?

    Not Sure it was UBI

    I would say the left side depth is

    Letang
    Dumo
    Matheson
    Petterson
    Riikola
    POJ

    That can quickly change the more time and chances POJ gets.

    Ya and he should. He's a really good prospect, so he shouldnt be rushed. Getting scratch will give him time to review his performance and work on specific areas. He is still only 21.

    Just curious if someone caught what it was... ie shoulder, elbow etc etc.
    Or saw the hit or fall or whatever happened on his last shift... if it even happened on the last shift or he played through it.

    Sitting POJ for Dumoulin is one thing. Sitting him for Riikola is just... well... yeah.

    The numbers and the eye test say that he's been getting caved for a little while. Ever since scoring that goal really.

    I'm still very high on the guy but he needs a break.

    No, he doesn't. He needs experience and to grow into his role.

    He’s fallen off. It’s okay he is a young player.

    Yes, it is okay. And that's precisely why you do not scratch him for a journeyman.

    We also need to win games and he ain’t helping lately. February has been awful for him that’s a long time to be awful and “just play through it”. It’s not getting better at the moment

    I think also given the impending LD crunch at the expansion draft and their value as assets to us, it'll be good for Burkstal to get a look at Riikola for a full game or 3.

    Fair.

    Unless you think we are in danger of missing the playoffs, I do not buy this. And I also do not buy that Riikola makes us a better team.

    Dumoulin? Sure. Riikola. No.
