    Do you think Yandle and Ekblad should be together after all you have seen? Why?

    Ekblad needs a more defensive partner and Yandle should have slightly easier matchups

    It didn't really work that well. I'm not ready to say which one need easier matchups, I guess it might depend on the strength of the other first line (speed, physicality, etc.)

    Hopefully Kiselevich can be that guy.

    I think they were hoping Kiselevich would be that guy but he hasn't adjusted at least not yet. If Bogdan becomes what they hope they'll probably separate Yandle and Ek.

    Until I see another Dman who can play all situations better for 22+ mins a game, I'll take 3-5.

    They're not perfect, but they're our best option as of right now

    I concur also, Yands-Ek is all they have right now. If Matheson comes into his own this season, then maybe we can separate them or it only strengthens the 2nd pair.

    They shouldn´t play together, the best Point for the Pouliot with a single move split the D, pass trough with speed and was alone infront of the Goal.
    It only needed a small push to get Pouliot out of Balance, none of them even thought about useing the Body to get him of the Puck.

    When you dont have the Speed you should have the physical Point and both together had nothing of it.
    Both Player are more offensive minded Players who are not the best skater on the Planet.

    This question can be tied to Matheson Pysyk ti be honest.

    As much as this is about splitting Yandle and Ek, I mostly want to see Matheson Pisser split as well.

    I know I said Yandle should get easier matchups, but he is honestly our number 1 right now till someone plays better.

    i think ek and yand are a bad pairing not because they dont match, but because ekblad is terrible and drags yandle down. i dont think anyone would work well with him.
