Maybe this is a dumb question—do we know how deep into analytics our FO is? I mean, not that there is anything in a theoretical eye test with Tinordi specifically that doesn't jibe with the stats anyway, but this is something I have been wondering in general. I know they have also acquired some statistical darling types recently, but there has always been that air of "need to be tougher" around this franchise when things aren't going quite right.6 game now, double the sample size!
90 minutes TOI
63% O zone start
37% CF (52 for 88 against
38% SF (30-49)
31% SCF (18-41)
24% HDSCF (5-16)
40% actual goals (2-3)
The indication from morning skate today is Tinordi is playing with Steve kampfer tonight. Vaakanainen is being scratched (healthy as far as I know) They literally could not have put Vaakanainen into a worse spot and now he seems to be getting blamed for that pairings ineffectiveness.
This is the most confusing thing the Bruins have done in a long, long time. Jarred Tinordi is awful and they are continuing to play him over superior options. I can see the argument for using him against Washington as a big body face puncher. That is literally all he is useful for. When he is on the ice it is a fire drill in our own end, hold your breath we don't get scored on.
I know I'm being very negative here but I just don't understand what they see and think he does that will help them win games. They excel at defending and limiting chances against. They don't need a stay at home guy (and it's being generous to describe Tinordi as stay at home). They need someone who will move the puck a little bit.
