I thought I'd get a discussion going about our Dman pairs.
With Komo out, Gorges has really stepped up (like last year's injury to Komo). He seems very comfortable playing with Markov and we've had success since they've been together. You guys think that pairing should stay together even when Komo comes back? I would not mind that at all. It would balance out the D more.
I mean having Breeze/OByrne/Dandy with Boo boo, and Marky with Komi creates a huge gap. I'd like to see it more balanced out when Komi comes back. I'd go with:
Then later in the game and on PK's roll with our top 4 D (Markov, Komo, Hammer, and Gorges).
I know Hammer's icetime will cut a bit but I love how good Marky and Gorges are together and I think Komo and Cube would play good as they are both physical, and having a solid Dman in Hammer playing with a weaker one creates a good balance.
