    Fox is a tremendous player but he's not moving any of those forwards on the Islanders out of the crease. Jones isn't anywhere near the player Fox is.

    Fox was amazing, but this still holds true. It’s one thing if it’s one d-pair, 2 is risky, 3 pairs that can’t move a guy out??

    Adam Fox - 5'11" 181

    JG Pageau - 5'10" 180
    Eberle - 5'11" 187
    Beauvillier - 5'11" 182
    Palmieri - 5'11" 185
    Cizikas - 5'11" 195
    Barzal - 6' 187


    Seems like they're all the same size.

    But 82 games worth of turning around and going into the corner to retrieve the opponents dump ins takes a heavy toll. Luckily for Fox, some teams like to pick on Lindgren. If someone has related stats, I’d love to see

    Hopefully new coach brings in a system where they protect their partners a bit more.

    Also having a goalie that can handle the puck like Shesterkin on dump in's, really helps out over the course of a season.

    I noted a lot of times pucks were "Hard-arounded" on dump in's during the season where Shesty flagged it down and made a quick helping pass or hand off to a D man. It's noticable when Shesty isn't in there how the retrieval for other teams seems a lot higher.

    Great point.
    It’s going to be hard to get used to that after having Lundqvist for so long

    We definitely were a little spoiled having Hank back there, Josh. His quickness to get behind the net and ability to read plays as they developed for opposing team break ins was unreal.
