It seems like the consensus on here is that Jagr will be playing 1st line.
How long will he be on the top line when Whitney seems like he should be…I am talking about TOI, effectiveness, and quality. Looking at the #’s Whitney is an improvement to our top line, posting more minutes than Ribs (albeit with more games) with about equal OPS and ATOI/ TOI as well. Jagr has minutes more like Dvorak…What does this do to the top lines in the middle of the season or the minute distribution of the wingers.
Switch Garbutt/Morrow/Jagr around? I know Jagr played 4th line while he was hurt. What do you think? Some #’s below.
JAGR: ATOI: 16:20; TOI: 1193; GP: 73; PTS: 53
WHITNEY: ATOI: 18:39; TOI: 1529; GP: 82; PTS: 77
RIBS: ATOI: 20:03; TOI: 1484; GP: 74; PTS: 63
