alexstream Posted October 5, 2009 Share Posted October 5, 2009 The good news with all those injuries, is that it "forced" Martin to split Gill and Mara... I think the negative comments were exaggerated because since those guys are not spectacular and won't make a WOW play (or so rarely) we do tend to emphasize on the blunders and are less prone to forgive... Call that the Niklas Sundstrom syndrome But it was still a concensus that those two guys should be split, at least to equilibrate the physicality and the speed on the pairings. We now have : Hamr - Spatch Gill - Gorges Mara - Weber I still think that Spatch should play on the left since Hamr has a lot of experience on the right side (with Dion Phaneuf among others) Gorges covering Gill and vice versa is amazing. Mara and Weber... wow. if the young guy can make it happen, Mara is certainly a good guy to help him bring his "A" game. Seriously, although the 1st pairing has the edge, I think those 3 pairings are pretty balanced and could potentially be our best pairing any given night.
