    Is Galchenyuk expected to play on the top PP unit?

    Game time changed for one of the first games of the season. I think the change was only 8:00 to 8:30 though.

    He's probably not going to get first bite at it, will probably get on it at some point, but probably not regularly.

    Ryan Wilson goes over the PP heading into the season in his latest blog.

    According to WAR.

    Personally I want Galchenyuk-Malkin-Hornqvist but the lines will be all over the place, so I don’t care.

    Yes, he likes the analytics of Horny playing with Geno..the problem is AG and Tanev are unknown players here and using their analytics elsewhere seem problematic...I give it a shot first with them and with Rust before going back to Horny myself...

    That works for Sid's line, but Malkin needs stable linemates to do his thing. So the constant juggling has never done Geno any favors, he has moments of brilliance with 2 wingers and then it stops, but when you give him 2 guys that compliment his game and you keep them there, he's fine and does the kind of damage one expects of him.

    The constant line juggling needs to be lessened this season, if Sullivan is going to do his pairs shtick, then do it f***ing consistently, he kept Jake and Sid together, but literally no other pairing with a 3rd wheel rotated was maintained at all.

    If Sully is going to pretend to be Bowman, f***ing do it right, or come up with something else.

    G and Chucky clicking would go a long way to lessening the amount of juggling...
    Please bond, love each other and want to go through a wall for each other...

    Didn’t he also say this about the D...

    That’s the second mention of Johnson potentially bringing a player’s numbers down and it’s not without merit. He is a very serious factor holding the Penguins back from success and his minus-0.7 win projection is the second worst mark among defensemen set to be in the lineup this season. That’s ahead of only Erik Gudbranson, who’s currently slotted for the second pair on this very team. Pittsburgh entering the season with two of the league’s bottom five defenders playing prominent roles is likely a determining factor in the team’s diminished standing and it leads to the team having two third pairs after their elite top pair, the league’s third worst bottom four. That’s not what you want to hear about a team with Stanley Cup aspirations.

    Yes,he did. Although, I don't think you need a model to figure that out. His assessment of the defense is accurate though.

    - Dumo/Letang are one of the best pairs in the league
    - Schultz can be better
    - Gubranson and Pettersson could be solid
    - Johnson is an anchor

    I just saw Kahun's stats from his 10-11 season in Germany:

    30 GP; 69 G; 137 A; 206 P; 14 PIM

    :laugh:

    Okay, I see he was playing with Draisaitl, but still.

    Yep. If they can lock down Guentzel/Crosby, Malkin/Galy, Hornqvist/Bjugstad and Blueger/ZAR/Simon...... I don’t care where the other guys slot in. Take a little bit to find out where they belong and go from there.

    I can’t take another year of major line changes every single game. Those sets of two either should work on paper or did work out well last year.

    Rossi got a number of players, including Sid, to provide insight on the "chemistry" that was missing last season.

    I thought it interesting, and a little scary, how divergent the ten opinions were. And holy ****, Matt Murray's was straight out of political non-speak saccharine "
    “I think we’re always trying to come together as a group. I’ll leave it at that.
    “That’s what we try to do each and every year: come together as a group. I think we’ve done a good job of that in the past, and we’re always trying to do better.” Ugh.
