Non-Hockey Chatter / Re: The Official Movie Thread

I had a few hours to kill on Sunday and this and Thor were both starting at the same time. While I was walking around beforehand I was listening to Kermode and Mayo film review show off BBC Radio which is a really great show and Kermode described it as "really shoddy, really ill-conceived, spectacularly messy, thunderously boring".

So I went for Thor and it was great fun.

How Benn didn't get a penalty on that play is beyond me. He dropped his gloves and threw a player to the ice. Pretty sure that's the definition of 4 minute minor.

Why not have Matthews with Marner and Martin?  Auston has missed a few games because of a cracked rib., from what i've read. We don't need the likes of Weber having his way with our star.
That line is certainly an option and with the lines changing all the time, it looks like they play well together with two good looking goals.

Cracked rib?  Rrrrrr?

This really hasn't received much attention anywhere, but Liljegren's been out with an upper-body injury since November 4th. He's missed 6 games in that span.

Wait a minute, Matthews was out too, also with an upper body injury.  Coincidence? Or were they at a secret "Foundations of Future Stanley Cup winning teams" meeting?

I agree. good post.

Martin-Matthews-Marner
Komarov-Kadri-Nylander
Hyman-Marleau-Brown
JVR-Bozak-Moore

Would love to see more Marner-Matthews. It almost makes to much sense putting our best passer with our best shooter. We have the depth to do it considering Marner's been a 4th liner at times this year.

Like Carlton said during the Montreal GDT, these lines do give a good balance of scoring and shutdown lines with scoring potential on all 4. Gives Babcock strong-side faceoff options on all 4 lines too.

I've been saying since early last season that Marner should play with the left-handed centres where possible, and he showed some early magic with Matthews off a great scrum and bump from Martin. It helps him put his body between the defense and the puck and opens up more reception options for him to exploit.

Long-term though, I don't think it'll be Matthews - Marner unless we're chasing a goal and Nylander isn't working for some reason. Matthews and Marner both have the ability to elevate the play around them, and that's way more valuable in creating ridiculous scoring threats up and down the lineup.

I will be there tonight! PHX has won two in a row against OTT and MTL so maybe we shouldn't take them so lightly... or maybe OTT and MTL just really suck too.

Lines went into the meat grinder mid game against Montreal:

Martin-Matthews-Marner
Komarov-Kadri-Nylander
Hyman-Marleau-Brown
JVR-Bozak-Moore
