Quote from: OldTimeHockey on March 01, 2023, 07:02:59 AMConnor Timmins has 7 less points in 30 less games.

↑ This is still the most important point.

Timmins' points-per-game is double Sandin's, and he's cheaper, and he signed early (i.e. didn't holdout for a contract). You don't need 3× d-men serving pure offence roles on a team, so keep two and maximize return on the third.

FYI YouTube lets users just "scroll back" to the start of a livestream (drag the timebar at the bottom, same way as with a regular video) even if it's in the middle of streaming live!

(Dubas also confirmed that Matthews is playing hurt, and slightly implied that Engvall and Sandin were salary cap casualties... although he never once said "we'll miss those guys" so perhaps he also felt they would be exposed in the playoffs by opposing teams/coaches)

Quote from: David AlterSheldon Keefe says Luke Schenn and Erik Gustafsson will make their debut tonight.  Aston-Reese and Liljegren come out and the team will go 11F and 7D.  Keefe says not so much an injury concern for Liljegren as it is getting the other guys in.

Keefe wasn't afraid to try Marner at D — is there any glimmer of hope we could try Rielly on F?
Quote from: Guilt Trip on March 01, 2023, 09:57:47 PMMcCabe is the only D without a minus tonight. Lots of options moving forward haha

Meanwhile, Nylander worst on the team at −3 at 5v5. It's possible he's just really sad about his buddies, and it will wear off with time.
Quote from: azzurri63 on March 01, 2023, 09:27:56 PMSad part is Oilers problem is defence. They would be fighting for Bedard without #97. Think Leaf stars would be able to exploit that but haven';t shown up. After one of their best games in Seattle disappointing tonight.

The secret to Edmonton's new defence is they removed Barrie from the team. (But yeah, also Leafs not putting a full effort tonight)
