    Who would you scratch?

    Post by Cap'n Clutch on Wed Apr 05, 2017 11:50 am

    Stole this idea from TSN 1200 but, assuming everyone is fully healthy and ready to go, who would you scratch? Not who you think will be but, who would you scratch if you were the coach?

    I'm going to make the assumption that the following players are shoe ins if healthy.

    Turris
    Stone
    Hoffman
    Ryan
    Brassard
    Smith
    Stahlberg
    MacArthur
    Pageau
    Burrows
    Pyatt

    Obviously it's multiple choice so you can pick your 5. Lets see what you all think? I personally have a few obvious choices myself and maybe you don't agree with my shoe ins?

    I'd scratch pretty much anyone on that list ahead of White. Sadly, that's not going to happen.

    Sorry guys. I added Brassard twice so I got confused with the poll. Should be all fixed up now.

    I was tempted to put Ryan in the mix there as a potential scratch to be honest.

    I'd personally start with White in the lineup and depending on how the series is going and what's needed I'd slot in Dzingel, Neil or Kelly. If experience is required it would be Kelly, if toughness is required it would be Neil and if White is struggling on the big stage due to lack of experience and we still need speed and offense I'd give Dzingel a shot.

    If we go more than one round chance are there will be injuries. What Kelly can offer from his experience is best served at practice. He cannot keep up with the pace.

    At least with Neil there is the toughness factor. He will deliver a solid hit or two, drop the gloves when needed.

    Hopefully Bobby is just injured so we don't have to consider scratching him. I'd start with White in the lineup, assuming he shows well in the last couple games of the regular season.

    I'd keep wingels in for grit and dzingel in for speed and because he deserves it. It's the playoffs. I have my doubts on wether white can really jump to that level of play right off the bat.

    White may or may not be able to jump to the necessary level of play required to stay in the lineup but, I don't think it's a big gamble to give him a shot. Dzingel has struggled down the stretch.

    They're not scratching kelly, so you have to keep him. I'd personally scratch wingels and dzingel on alternate days. Dzingel has gone bone dry offensively.
