Are you taking Tkachuk, Monahan, Gaudreau or Lindholm off the top unit? Or we could replace Gio with Neal and go all out.

 

At this point I think you need to load up the first unit and take your chances with the 2nd unit.

 

Your choice.

It's not wrking every night is it?

Theres this idea that James Neal has to “earn” his ice time or place on this team. It’s stupidity. James Neal earned a spot when he scored at least 20 goals in the past how many seasons? We’ve got a sniper on the team that isn’t being put in a position to succeed with his skill set. 

 

Well right now Lindholm is out playing him in every way and isn't giving up that spot on the top line.

Has Dube even been paying?

 

Dube is coming off an injury. He’s a rookie. Rookies earn their ice time. Not to mention I did see him go helmet first into the boards at one point in the 2nd. Hopefully it isn’t injury related.

The bench gets shortened when we trail after 2.

I agree 100% JT. 

 

I just have an unpopular idea of putting Lindholm (at Center) and Neal on his wing. Maybe if the top line falters we may see it.

It isn't and it won't but those 4 guys are all PPG players right now and are all in the top 45 in league scoring.

Only 2 shots for the Oilers in the 3rd.

 

Gulutzan implementing his 3rd period “systems”?

I would be fine with that I am just not a fan of seeing Monahan and Neal on the same line, I just don't see the fit with those two.

That's the other thought.

I prefer though to see guys playing on their off wing on the PP.
