VGK 2020 Playoffs “Depth Chart”

With the extended roster available to the Golden Knights, I wanted to take a look at how they might roll out their players as they need to go deeper into the lineup.

The best way to illustrate that was by using an element common to football but somewhat foreign to hockey, the “depth chart.” This is my best guess at how Pete DeBoer’s “depth chart” looks heading into the 2020 Playoffs.

(Note: This is not a way to build lines. Instead, it’s to show which players are best at each individual position. Thus, in the event that there’s an injury, which player would be the next to fill in. The idea is to use each player the highest up the chart at each position to build the roster of 12 forwards and six defensemen. Then, lines and pairs are created around that group of 18.)

    Thanks, well done

  2. Doug MacLeod

    All teams with which I have been involved have used a depth chart!

  3. Daryl

    Looks pretty good… but not sure Holden on right defense. When was the lady time he played on that side? I’m assuming when he was paired with Merrill and that combo, minus a game or two, looked horrible.

    It gives a good look at where the players stand in case of injury

    As I’ve said before, THIS is your strength Ken. Thanks for the info! Hope the boys & Panda play well today!!!! (If you hear anything more definitive on patch, please share with us).

  5. Well guys pretty sad bunch at this point 3 goals 4+ minutes – sound familiar. They look like they are playing in slow motion – very nonchalant type attitude and play. They need to clean up their act quick otherwise pack their bags and stop embarrassing themselves and head for home. It hurts to say that but someone has to.

      I wouldn’t mind seeing a shakeup of sorts for the next game. VGK got the win but que pretty much outplayed for 2 full periods and then some

  6. Doktor Hockey

    They will be fine. Still trying to adjust to not having your TOP scorer there. Just settle down!

  7. Bruce Clough

    You left out the goalies. We all kniw that Dansk is #3, but who do you put at #1 and #2?
