Yannick Weber, man of record PP goals by a Hamilton D, hardest shot in the CHL, will be up to play, well PP. I write he replaces Schneider because he shoots hard and accurately, has a French forename and Markov cannot be replaced.
Back in November, when our PP was bad (if not worse), everyone proposed lots of solutions. I was among those. Given that our situation has descended to nearly that very point (excuse the pun) again, I re-submit to you this article, where the punctuation on the five-point remedy read:
5) Bring up Yannick Weber
Good shot (99.2 mph). Good stride. Is a defenceman (albeit a rookie). He is doing alright down on the farm on the PP. And he did alright up here on the PP during camp.
Still holds true.
Among the other questions that remain:
1) Will Weber play defence at even strength?
2) Will Dandenault still be a forward?
3) Who plays the Markov spot?
4) Will Boston let us win so they won't have to face us?
