Good, most players are back on the ice, Dvorak may be healthy now. Also, Anderson and Hoffman are non-contact and Price will have a virtual meeting with his doctor to assess his knee

i dont like the idea of dvorak at wing tbh considering how shallow our centres are

Drouin - Suzuki - Caufield (gotta give Cole some time to start things up)
Hoffman - Dvorak - Lehkonen (Lehko's done well, give him some time)
Vejdemo - Poehling - Armia
Dauphin - Paquette - Dea

and if anderson's back then

Drouin - Suzuki - Anderson
Hoffman - Dvorak - Caufield (less pressure)
Lehkonen - Poehling - Armia
Dauphin - Vejdemo - Dea (paquette has been terrible)

I like your lines but on the top line, all 3 of those players are pretty soft. None are good at board battles, none go to the net, which is why Dvorak would fit well with them as a grinder.
Dvo would fetch the puck and go in front of the net, suzuki would set up the shooter: Caufield. Poehling also should get a better look as well. If Andy comes back it would be a great line of Hoffman- Poehling- Anderson. Lehky should be on a shutdown line where he can also chip in with offense. With vejdemo and drouin I think it would be complete. I agree Paquette has been a disaster. He has a neck injury from that hit by Bennet so he will be out. So my lines with Andy :

Dvo- Suz-Goal
Hoff- Poehls- Andy
Drou- Vejdemo- Lehky
Dauphin- Dea - Army

if anderson's back he provides the guy who'll go in a board battle, and go to the net. if you really want, have him at LW with suzuki (C) and caufield (RW)
hoffman's been performing under expectations, whereas drouin is on a 52 pt pace (82 games). if you really want to give poehling a chance, you go with Poehling - Dvorak - Drouin
then a line of hoffman - vejdemo - lehkonen would be your shutdown line that can provide offense, and the fourth line is best of the rest

That's fine with Andy on top line, but on that dvo line there isn't really a good sniper so Dvo Hoff and drou would be also good. Then until toff and gally come back we could have poehling lehky and army

I am so annoyed ducharme puts him with non helpful players. Seriously this is getting stupid. Fire ducharme already I don't care about tanking and he'll be the best coach for tanking. NO!
F that. He is ruining the development of caufield. He is a mini claude julien

This is what I like to see for powerplay but of course Chiarot is at the point. I get so frustrated with ducharmes decisions. No sense whatsoever

Lines at practice:

Hoffman - Suzuki - Lehkonen
Drouin - Dvorak - Armia
Dauphin - Poehling - Caufield
Paquette - Vejdemo - Pezzetta
Toffoli - Anderson (both no contact)

Chiarot - Savard
Kulak - Petry
Niku - Wideman
Scheuneman

Allen
Montembeault

looks like Toffoli and Anderson are a no-go for the bruins game

Ducharme's saying that Baddock, Evans, Romanov, Belpedio, and Primeau are all available for the game, but might not be in good enough condition to play
He also says that he likes what he saw with Petry playing, but he might not play

I think best case scenario for the game's gonna be (my lines, not Ducharme's):

Drouin - Suzuki - Caufield
Hoffman - Dvorak - Lehkonen
Poehling - Evans - Armia
Dauphin - Vejdemo - Pezzetta

Chiarot - Petry
Romanov - Savard
Kulak - Wideman

Allen
Primeau

Same lines today as they were yesterday. Romanov and Evans joined practice today. Evans was wearing a non contact jersey while romanov skated with schueneman on the 4th pair indicating both of then will not be in the lineup tonight vs boston
Cam hills has been sent down to the ahl

Ducharme says it's unlikely romy or Evans plays today or tomorrow vs. Chicago bc their equipment came late and today was their 1st day skating again.
