Detroit coach Jeff Blashill hopes he doesn't have to rely on the Dylan Larkin, Tyler Bertuzzi and Anthony Mantha line as much in 2020-21.
Blashill is hoping that other players come to the forefront and start playing better, giving his top line extra rest. “We have to get more from more lines and part of that is those lines earning more ice time and not having to play the Larkin line as much as I did a year ago," Blashill stated. "That’s not to say their ice time won’t be significant, it will be, but to a level that makes sense for our team. To do that, other lines have to find ways to be successful, whether that’s through points or through momentum, through creating more opportunities than you give up. I’m hoping our depth gives us that ability. We can’t be a one-line team and have success. We have to be a team that has success throughout each line. All this is prediction at this point. Once the season gets going, guys will have an opportunity to prove it.” Nov 23 8:16 am (EST)
