    Last preseason game. I'm unsure if Col televising or streaming this game.

    [​IMG]

    Zucker/Greenway(?)/Granny
    Nino/JEE(?)/Coyle
    Rau/Hendricks(?)/Brown(?)
    Foligno/Fehr(?)/Read(?)

    Brodin/Dumba
    Bartkowski/Pateryn
    Prosser/Murphy

    JEE listed as a center tonight.
    Stalock/Hammond to split the game.
    Brown, Fehr, Hendricks, Read, and (maybe?) Rau fighting for 4th line/pressbox roster spots.
    Bartkowski, Murphy, and Prosser for the 7th d-man roster spot.

    Bet Coyle stays with Greenway, JEE goes with Granlund.

    I don't know which will play where; it's a coin flip. I put JEE/Coyle together because it'll be one of the PK units for the season.

    I put Greenway with Coyle because they're going to be on the same line whether Greenway ends up at center or not.

    Greenway needs time with his linemates.

    I'm not a fan of how the top-9 is put together. The lines don't really seem to click currently (yes, it's preseason). I would like to see how a Nino/JEE/Coyle 3rd line looks (if we could actually watch the game that is).

    Granlund on the left wall for the power play just feels so wrong.

    37 is Rau for MN and Compher for Avs.

    I'm just checking in online, the Brewers are more interesting currently.

    Rau reminds me of Walz.

    Bought to swap off nhl.tv for the brewers during intermission.

    Nice to see MN get an OT game in the preseason. For sure Koivu won't be on the ice for this 3v3. :nod:

    Lost on a PPG in OT, meh.

    It sounds like MN's goalies kept them in the game in what could have been a blowout after the 1st period.

    I think shots were 18-5 COL after the 1st.

    I think the theory is sound, but from the couple of games that I saw, Granlund hasn't figured it out yet.

    Didn’t Yeo already try Granlund there? I don’t know if he will ever figure it out and think that has more to do with him being a non-threat shooting wise from the point.
    Thursday!

    Yes, but that was an entirely different setup and had Parise as the main shooting option. Parise can't shoot. Simply put, you can't run a PP from the right side unless you have a right hander than can shoot. Dumba is the only right hander the Wild have that can do that, and he can't play on both PP units. Granlund working the left wall and feeding onetimers to Staal, Zucker, and Niederreiter "should" work.
