The 4th line gets rolled and plays way too much. Get Acciari some real linemates who aren't just looking to chip and chase for 25 second shifts.
It’s a lot more Harkins than Carter. It’s a shame Poulin can’t stay healthy because he would be perfect for the 4th line right now.
Acciari-Poulin-Puljujarvi would be a solid forechecking 4th line. Carter shouldn't be playing 14+ minutes a night.

The biggest thing with analytics is...teams have their own departments, and traditionally teams aren't looking at the same things that would be available at Natural Stat Trick or other analytics sites...namely Corsi/Fenwick/Shot attempts. I remember a year or so ago Sullivan alluded to this saying something like, we aren't looking at the same data you do, and seeming to stress more of an importance on Scoring Chances than Shot attempts.

Taylor from DK's site just had a good piece on the Penguins and analytics: https://www.dkpittsburghsports.com/2024 ... lytics-tlh

Weird that players look like crap lately with Malkin, but seem competent with Sid. Zucker, Rakell, even Rust are prime examples lately. Just an observation.

Said that to my wife last night...maybe we need to worry less about wingers for Malkin and more about a center for the wingers.

Great game last night though..despite the blunders and **** moves, they produced a great win against a great team. Was fun to watch. Puusty definitely seemed to have an up and down game.

Since when did anyone say Zucker was not a good fit with Geno? He was. And Malkin had a good season with him.

Rakell looks bad. Plain and simple.

Zucker was better away from Geno.

The 3 minutes he managed to not be injured away from Malkin is too small a sample size.
