Seems like one piece too much as originally stated but Nyquist + Sheahan + Marchenko + 1st for Stamkos + Droiun I would do

In Topic: Adam Oates being brought in to help PP

Consultant ... doing something like this sounds like a page out of Babcock's book.  

Blashill should add another page from Babcock's book and start calling and talking to Todd Nelson a few times a week to pick his brain. It took him a good dozen games to figure out how to coach at the AHL level but he's now done that and is crushing it.... Blashill needs to do the same and maybe Oates + Nelson can help him figure out how to coach at the NHL level

In Topic: Mike Green

I really like the addition of Mike Green. He hasnt been as offensive (yet) as we'd hoped but it probably has to do with getting use to a new team and system but he is not the defensive liability I thought he'd be and man is he ever a great skater.... smooth! He has a great shot form the point that he needs to lean into more often. Once Blashill learns how to coach an NHL team and utilize the weapons he has Green will provide more but I am still really happy with him so far.

improve the PP by acquiring the correct net front presence, I ike Abby, but he is not a PP specialist....AND SHOOT THE FRICKIN PUCK! Stop with the fancy pussyfoot passing! 9 times out of 10 Kronwall passes the puck even when he has time to lean into a one time slapper! Stop being so fancy, go back to basics! Shoot hard and shoot often!  Pummel the net! You got Mike Green with a rocket shot. shoot it! A huge net front presence, and put a guy in the slot on opposite sides of the puck....shoot it! The main problem is not shooting and looking for that perfect play.  Sure it looks beautiful when it works 10% of the time, but the other 90% its just one too many passess....BLAST THE PUCK! Even in front of the net, you're always told that when you shoot it, try to drive it through the back of the net, stop with the soft little taps at the puck!
Simple....I'd teach them for half the cash Oatsie is getting! But its nice to see him (kind of)back within the organization.

I looked for the button to LOVE this post but couldn't find it. You my friend are 100000% correct. Much less ticky tacky crap for a while and dig into some old school blast at the net and muck the puck hockey.... Get ugly

In Topic: New NHL all-star game format

The best All-Star game format would be the one where they cancel the stupid game
