Is that enough though? 

 

Well, yes and no, The PK was not as bad as this last season and the personnel on D were basically the same. On the other hand, upgrading personnel does tend to make everything easier. This club has had a glaring need at LD for over two years now, which, in classic MB fashion, has gone unaddressed. (And of course fans cheerled enthusiastically as he sat on his arse, but I digress). I'm pretty confident that adding a major upgrade at D would likely help the PK, as it would help other facets of our game.

Not for the PK, but Gostisbehere would be a solid trade candidate. 

 

I could also see the Habs going the entire season, with this current line up...

I wonder if byron is hurt? His ability to cut off passes and bolt out for a short handed breakaway would be nice to have back.  It feels like the forwards are too tentative. Lateral passing is the problem. I think someone else mentioned it on here as well.

I like Gostisbehere -- but is Philadelphia willing to trade him?

He may be hurt. But he's always been the kind of player who, if he loses even a half-step, becomes marginal. Don't be too surprised if he just falls off a cliff.

He has done nothing this year. After the concussion, he has not been the same player. Not using his speed at all

Really foolish extension to hand out to a 30-year-old.  I don't know if this precipitous decline will occur this year, but it definitely will at some point in the contract.

The league only wants the big penalties (major/double minor) to be challengeable.  A major can be challenged to rescind it to a minor while a double minor can be challenged if the penalized team believes that it was a 'friendly fire' situation.

Do you have a link to these rule changes?  I would like to read up on them.  Seems odd that double minors can be challenged but not a minor.  

 

In you example, if a double minor gets challenged and it was a “friendly fire” situation, does the entire penalty get negates or just the second minor?

 

Edit:  never mind, I stopped being lazy and found it myself.  Thanks for the info on the rule changes.

Who runs the PK, Richardson? 

Your question sort of suggests we need an upgrade on and off the ice?
