I posted most of this in a comment thread, but it was at the bottom and on a page that was moving it's way down the home page, so I thought I'd put it up here, as I like my ideas (duh) and was hoping for more feedback. This is also assuming we have a healthy roster. Thanks to the Sharks, regardless of how illegal you may or may not feel the elbows to the heads were, we likely do not now, but if we intend on reaching the post season, they should probably hurry back.
I know everyone has drooled over the idea of Richie and Goose together on the PP, but even before Richie was back, I was thinking it might be better to split them up. Follow me here:
Put Richie with Robi on one unit and Goose with Langs on the other as the point men. Langs played the point in NJ, so he wouldn’t be new to the concept. This also put a QB on each unit, instead of having them both on the same one, as well as putting both a left and right shot up top for one timers or just the favorable forehand side in the middle of the ice set up. All 4 can bomb it, so they’re all dangerous shooters.
Up front, that leaves Loui, Morrow, Ribs, Benn, Otter and someone else (this is the only downside I can find). Ribs and Morrow obviously stay together, and either Loui or Benn can go with them. Ott is on the other unit as both the face off and net front guy, with Benn/Loui, depending on who you want with Morrow and Ribs. For the 6th forward, I’m not sure who you play.
I have this crazy idea that you could try letting Daly play as a forward rover, which would help with the player movement others and I have mentioned before. If they tried this, I would want this unit out with Goose on the point, so that when Goose decides to rove around, Daly could seamlessly cover for him, as he is also left handed, and possess many of the same skill attributes. You could also try Williams, if you trust what Razor says about his shots during practice.
