    Fun advanced stats trivia for ya, courtesy of a twitter buddy of mine Alex Appleyard (great follow btw):

    Line combo A: 55.49% CF, 55.55% SF, 66.67% GF, 59.64% ExGF, 48.34% ZSR
    Line combo B: 53.18% CF, 49.76% SF, 60.87% GF, 48.84% ExGF, 63.49% ZSR


    One of these is the 1Couturier line. The other is the top line of another team. Which one is the 1Couturier line and who can name the other line combo?

    Is it the Crosby line? or Stamkos line?

    On another note, this is a good read (https://www.nhl.com/news/sean-coutur...?tid=277548856). Really shows that Couts has been wanting to be a scorer for a while! Felt just like us! :P

    want to see patrick play again. If he can take over that 2nd line role later in the season and we can have a 2nd line of konecny-patiick-simmonds that would be awesome. Then weal Filppula-lehtera/weise/read/lindblom please come up

    Wow the top line is having a game. Despite Weise actually hitting the post, I still can't stand watching him play. Poor Weal has no chance on that line.

    Sanheim is playing really welll. Couturier is the best player on the ice, both teams. He is going to have 40 points before game 40 at this rate. Killing it.

    I think this is an appropriate time to reference this article from today:

    I was thinking the same thing about Sanheim. He had one shift in particular in the 1st when he broke up a Chicago play and joined the rush for a prime scoring chance. When Sanheim skates up ice he not only looks like a forward, he looks like a top 3 forward. That kid looks lethal as an offensive threat.

    Also shout-out to Konecny, he generates so many premium scoring chances and just isnt getting the lucky breaks/bounces yet, but he is going to explode with goal production sometime soon.

    Poor Konecny couldn't bury one. Great game from him, Sanheim, and Elliott and of course the top line.

    Flyers may need to sit Simmer if he's not going to take himself out. It's admirable that he's playing through injuries, but he's clearly hampered by it/them, as I believe it's more than one thing.

    Here are his numbers at 5v5:

    P/60: 1.23 (worse than Dale Weise)
    CF%: 42.46 (2nd worst on team, including D)
    CF% Rel: -8.85
    xGF%: 46.16
    xGF% Rel: -6.93


    Not really getting anything done on the PP lately, either.


    Like I said, it's admirable and I know he's a tough son of a gun, but if he's going to be at 70% all year this team won't be as effective as if he were at 100% (or as close to it as you can be late in the season). They need him to provide secondary scoring and they need him to be effective on the PP.

    Literally was talking to my wife about this article yesterday (her second favorite player behind Ghost). Nice of him to not throw any chairs...not saying he would have been blamed for doing so.

    As for Simmonds, I was thinking this during the game last night. He doesn't seem as hard on the puck as he normally does. He also doesn't seem to be finishing checks with the same force and going as hard all around...like he is holding back a little bit. It sucks, but maybe giving him a couple weeks off would be a good thing...bring up Lindblom and give him a shot for a little bit (not going to happen, I know )

    He's been a beast -- but I agree that there's another level he can hit. Part of it is likely that teams have tape on him and know his tendencies. He'll need to adapt to that. He's also playing more -- with more partners. He's out there for 27+ minutes a game, which means that he needs to learn to play with every other defenseman, not just his partner. That takes some adjusting.

    For a 20-year-old, he's flat-out incredible. Let's celebrate the fact that we have one of the best young defensemen in the league on our team. And that he's only going to get better.

    Line A is Philly's Top Line
    Line B is TB's Top Line

    Not too shabby. And it actually looks relatively sustainable.

    If Patrick was in or Lindblom was up, I think Simmer would be out. But if Simmer comes out, you're looking at Weise on PP #1. That doesn't sound like a good life choice.
