Posted this in another thread:

Honestly, it just looks like an accident.  The defense look like they were doing a drill in the middle of the ice and the forwards along the outside.  Either Gudas strayed too far to the boards or Couturier strayed too far in, or both.  Still, strikes me as a little haphazard to have two apparently unrelated drills that close to each other on the ice.  I don't know.  Never been to a Hakstol practice.

 

Adding to say:

I wonder if they "move" G back to center if C can't go.  Wonder what that would do to the other lines.  I think I'd be inclined to move G back to center with Voracek and put Lindblom on the other wing and tell the Swede to just go to the net.  I'd consider putting Konecny with G and V, but kind of like the prospect of he, Patrick and Simmonds being on the same line.  With this coach, I bet he puts Filppula between Giroux and Voracek, puts Laughton on the third line, moves Lehtera to center on the fourth and dresses Weise on that line as well.

I like that idea, but I'd also consider putting Lindblom at center, a position he has played much of his life. To me his game is very Couturier-like

Tall ask to put him at center vs. Crosby or Malkin, but I certain get wanting to keep G on the wing.  Maybe Patrick will move up if G stays on the wing.

Yeah, I know. Move Patrrick up, put Lindblom at center between Simmonds and Weal?

Gudas is a repeat offender. I think the league should look at it.

Yes he played well at center and was pretty solid at faceoffs....however from the reports i seen last night Hak was going to scratch him for tonight's game....not sure if Coot's issue will change that.

For some reason, it looks like you are getting a background when you copy the twitter code.  The code is correct btw from the url.

The link itself embeds the link.  Yours had a grey background in it.

exactly how I responded after watching it too....    I am so over gudas anymore...

 

But, I mean, does is really matter of Couts is not in the lineup?   He will never be anything more than a defensive specialist who can't skate anyway... no big loss there.

You're not going to get it. It's obviously his right knee, so it's a question of how much damage, how much swellling, how much mobility. I assume if he can play on it with a brace he will play.

There was intent. If you watch the film his head goes back...and to the left. Back...and to the left.  Back....and to the left.  Back...and to the left.

Honestly, that one appears to be on Coots.   They have two different things going on there and Gudas was watching the puck to his left (it comes toward Gudas just about the time of the collision) while Coots is looking down and fondling a puck.   It may have been a timing thing because it doesn't look like either expected the other to be there.   Might actually be a design flaw in the drills.   Coots throws his stick seemingly in anger, so I wonder if it was "Dammit, I'm injured" or "Gudas!" or "Dumbass Drill!"

I would say the coaching staff should be utilizing a little more space b/t drills.

Yeah.  I've seen this before with other teams (and the Flyers under other coaches).  But there is usually some sort of timing thing so that Gudas (and whomever he was in that drill with) is more to Gudas' left and the motion Gudas is involved with is happening while Coots would be receiving the pass from the player along the boards.  This way, the Gudas thing is done or further along by the time Coots gets there, Coots goes in while the next set comes into the zone, alternating back and forth like that.

 

Somehow, the drill Gudas was in was too far to the right and the timing between the two was off.

I agree no one really needs to know if he is going to play besides the coach and GM. Keep the other team guessing i say.
