So? After watching Bones the last few games I have not been very impressed with his play. I know the season is young, but I'm wondering what your thoughts are.
The way I look at it, why not give Rakell a shot. I know that is risky, but Ive been noticing his play improving. Its a big jump from 4C to 2C, but i think he would fit well with the 2ND line. He has great offensive/D/play making/ face off skills. Above all, he seems very smart and alert out there. He seems to hustle and make smart safe plays. I love how he seems to make little plays that help his line be effective. Also he seems to have great skill. It seems like he understands that we need to get pucks to the net.
There are times where Bones seems lost and holds the puck (and have it immediately taken away). Do you think having Rakell on 2ND line would create some chances, since it seems like the 2ND line keeps getting hemmed in and not creating much offensive pressure.
What are your thoughts?
