I wouldn't hesitate to play Campbell again tomorrow.  If Foligno still can't play, I'd like to see Brooks in for Nash too.

I thought Riley Nash was really strong PKing tonight.

--- End quote ---
No argument from me about that.  Just more I’d like to give Brooks a chance more than wanting Nash out.

I’d take Thornton out. Thornton-Spezza-Simmons is too slow and defensively problematic. Spezza is great. Simmons I can understand his role. Sorry Joe. Take a seat tomorrow.

They weren't a line very much tonight. Simmonds was bumped to the third line.
And Spezza and Thornton were just fine.

--- End quote ---

Spezza, yes. He is amazing. Thornton, no. Thornton is not winning any offensive zone puck battles, turns the puck over, is slow getting back on defense, is not creating offense, has no impact on the power play. His intangibles had really better be through the roof somehow.

Spezza looks 25 again. Thornton looks like he couldn't even keep up in Beer League.

Yeah, Thornton has been to meh this season with a few flashes of nastiness or skill every 10 or so games.  I would sit him for 10 games and then see what he can do rested.

Spezza has been fantastic!  Great skill, heavy hits, elite FOs. 

Simmonds should see how good Weber broken hand is.  Weber is tough holding his stick.  Drop the stick wuss and fight like a tough guy.
