I came across a helpful tool and wanted to pass it along to everyone. I found this on dobberhockey.com and they have posted the line combinations for the last three games.

The reason I mention this is it gives a real good idea who is out on the power plays. It also lets you see if teams are using four forwards and a defenseman or five forward at times on the man advantage.

For example, Oliver Ekman-Larsson of the Coyotes has been on the ice for 60% of the teams power plays while Keith Yandle has been out there for only 22%. Phoenix tends to run a three-forward, two-defenseman power-play unit but other teams (like Tampa Bay) will run four forwards with Matt Carle as the primary defenseman on the man advantage.

It’s certainly worth a look to see how players are being used and who they are being paired with. A tool like this could help you with those tough line-up decisions.

    So that same points league that just counts assists and goal, someone dropped kris let any cause there is no bench or ir. I added him instantly as I see it as a no brainer…. Am I wrong for this? I mean I guess I dunno how long he will be out but think its worth it even if he is out for 2 or 3 weeks.

        I would consider it but that’s kind of an iffy one. RNH should have a good season but has been streaky. Huberdeau I think will get more chances because of a weaker team around him in Florida. Keep Hubes…for nwo

      I’ll answer both in one response. Pick up Letang. He’s skating again but not yet practicing with the team. It would be worth it to hang onto the QB of arguably the best PP in the NHL for 2 or 3 weeks of inactivity to get the rest of the season.
