Quote from: herman on November 05, 2022, 01:33:37 PMThe facts are these:
Holl is trusted for defensive match ups.
Holl needs to be second banana on his pair: he can't carry
Brodie is our best defensive defenseman

Sans Muzzin, the only real way to maximize Holl (the Leafs are a better team when he is going good), is to play him with Brodie. Everything else stems from that matchup pairing decision.

I thought last year Holl had some of his best games with Giordano.  I may have that wrong though.  I thought the narrative was that placing a struggling dman with Giordano fixed the struggling dman.

I just wonder if it's too much to ask for both Sandin and Brodie to play on sides they aren't used to playing.

So I think ideally, and eventually, you go with:

Rielly - Brodie
Sandin - Liljegren
Gio - Holl

But until they can see where Liljegren is at, as well as Sandin, then I think we see all kinds of variations until these guys can (hopefully) settle into proper predictable performances.

Agreed on all accounts, which why I don't think the lineup formation tonight is all that bad.  I just wonder about Sandin struggling on his wrong side.  Brodie should be able to handle it, but then he is also playing with a struggling Holl, so there is that.

I'd like to see Robertson in the lineup, but Malgin has played really well. He even threw a hit!

Good period by the Leafs so far. Held Boston in check and probably unfortunate we are only up by 1.

Hello from Barcelona!

Just checking in cos my self imposed exile failed miserably. Unreal finish by Matthews.

I hope he doesn't smirk at anyone the wrong way tonight.
