In Topic: Kronwall in the Playoffs

I think a Dion/Kronwall pairing would be great. In all honesty, he is rather alone back there, so it is not too difficult for the opponents to figure out who is going to quarterback the PP.

A top six power forward.

I cannot believe Kronwall was suspended for that hit. I hope the Red Wings are as pissed as I am. I want Johnson and Stamkos laid out.

+/- is a dumb stat to measure an individual players effort. Take the third goal from yesterday for example. Marchenko has its man, but Weiss is floating around staring at the puck, while his man, Sustr, rushes into the slot and scores the goal. That is hardly Marchenkos fault but the result is a -1 for him regardless. I thought Marchenko was abysmal in Game 1, which is understandable, it was his first playoff game. He looked much better in Game 2 so he  isn't the one who should sit, at least not because of his +/- .  Would Smith be an improvement ? I already made my point more than once about that in other threads.

I did not say Marchenko should sit bc he is -3, I said he should sit bc he is out of position more often than not.

Mrazek is starting the next game as he should.

Yes he is but I'm not sure he should because you say so.

This would be such a mistake, and just like with shootouts people would be really excited at first, only to realize that the big ice surface will only take away what makes hockey exciting. It slows the game down considerably. Goals is not what makes hockey exciting it is the intensity and the scoring chances.
