Messing with d pairings

Team: 2019-20 Toronto Maple Leafs
Team Explanation
I feel one big problem this year is playing Rielly too much. He is at his best at 22-23 minutes and he's playing 25 minutes.

This may sound crazy but I think the answer is taking him off PP1.

-it isn't clicking anywhere
-we need to cut his minutes
-Barrie is a good pp quarterback already

Also balance holls minutes a little higher.

End with Rielly and muzzin at 22-23
Barrie at 20-21
Dermott and Ceci at 20ish
Holl at 15

Bump Muzzin and put marner on the point.
Run it with two points (Marner and Barrie) instead of the umbrella now with just one point of Rielly

Though i am not sure if Marner has the slapper to play a pp point..

Certainly play the umbrella, that would be foolish to abandoned and would ruin our PP. I think it looks better with a bit more movement though to change passing lanes.

The idea of moving Barrie to PP1 was posted earlier today and I agree with it. Cut Rielly’s Minutes and possibly boost Barrie’s confidence.

Yeah you're probably right. Umbrella works as long as we aren't getting too many chances against.

But I like the idea of Barrie and Muzzin back there blasting shots.

Not a bad idea. Run PP 1 with nylander mathews Johnsson and pp 2 marner Tavares kapanen and Moore when healthy. Balance out the PP. right now it feels like we have only 1 pp line then we throw out the 4th line for pp 2. While waiting on marner maybe engvall since he is up.

Shoulda been more clear as it is right now who does it run thru? If it runs thru Mathews on his off side then should put the righty up top for one time and vice versa if run thru Marner.

Thing i noticed and was bothered also, Rielly overplayed.....but that doesnt mean he'll be better, hes Winger playing D ( same as Barrie ) and those need a working complement....so yet this year ( as Palhal said ) it shows how not crappy was Hainsey sheltering him despite all the sh.t we poured on the old guy....
