    Has Hyman spent any time at all with Matthews, or Marleau with JT? Ten games is enough of a first test for chemistry. Sure they could hit a grove after a few more games, but why not a reset for two guys that are cold as ice?

    Hyman has been pretty good so far this year. I'm still hoping for willy auston kasp line when willy resigns

    Nope. Hyman is doing great with Marner and JT. Leave him there, if/when we get Willy back you put him with Matthews and Kap, and put Marleau with Kadri and Brown

    Kapanen - Matthews - Nylander
    Hyman - Tavares - Marner
    Marleau - Kadri - Brown
    Goat - Lindholm - Leivo

    No - why?

    No need for that, hopefully Nylander is back soon

    Hyman has been playing great imo. Marleau looks lost, I’d try him on the third line with Kadri again, maybe when Nylander returns.

    Yeah they need so more secondary scoring. It will come, but having Brown and Par and that line..... try something else

    So for the last two years, most of us pretty crap on Hyman on Matthew’s wing. Ten games into the new season with Matthews leading the league in goal and scoring, someone want to put Hyman back with Matthew. Leafsnation, baby.

    Nylander will take his spot with Kap on the other side once hes back, Marleau has chemistry with Kadri so I see our future lines looking like this pretty soon. Hyman looks great with JT and Marner so you keep him there imo.


    Kapanen - Matthews - Nylander
    Hyman - Tavares - Marner
    Marleau - Kadri - Lindholm
    Brown - Gauthier - Leivo

    Marleau and Hyman have had very similar seasons thus far (production, ice time) and I suppose it's fair to say they've also been the third most productive member of their lines (not surprising in Hyman's case, perhaps a bit in Marleau's). Chemistry says otherwise sometimes, but the move might end up achieving the same result as now.

    The problem is that Marleau looks like he’s lost a step. So I think that’s impacting his game as much as chemistry (though I don’t think he has much of that with Matthews)

    He needs to start getting only very easy minutes to get the most out of him this season.

    The Zach Attack has been fine with Tavares and Marner.

    He looked quick to me last game, Im thinking he hasn't figured how or what role to play with Matthews yet. I also thinking Kappy pushed him to the secondary winger spot on the line.

    fyi.... not every fan thinks the exact same about everything circumstance. Matter of fact there is never a 100% consensus about anything, ever. This is the case with every team in every sport.

    Making an insinuatorish comment in the manner like you did is silly.

    Hyman and Marleau have 1 goal between them after 10 games. Marleau hasn't had an ES point in 7 games and Hyman has on 2 primary assists in 10 games. Whatever success the top two lines are having is not connected to the production of H and M. A move might refresh them both. Its unlikely they could produce less.

    We'll see tonight if Matthew/Marleau break out of the fog. Matty's longest scoring drought last season was 4 games. 13 SOG in the last 3 so he is overdue. Would be nice if his line mate's picked him up too.

    27 goals is 27 goals. Thats a top 6 number on most teams. I was anti Hyman for the rookie year but as has been often pointed out, his ES production last season with basically no pp time was solid. This little spurt by Kappy is the first time any other player has looked like he belongs top 6. That is only relevant after Willie comes back right now they have too many centers for the minutes, and too many minutes for the wingers.
