Primary Position Question
- In one of my leagues I have Malakhov, he's got both RD and LD and I
wanted to change his primary position from RD where he is he rated a
3 RD 8 Shot % and 12 for SOG to LD where he is rated 3 LD 8 Shot %
and 12 for SOG. I was told by the Commish that he can't do it because
When players have multiple positions, one is dominant... the other
is inferior to the other one... Malakhov's primary slot is RD, so he
will perform stronger at RD than at LD, even though he's rated 3 for
both I believe... I said thats only if the other position his ratings
are changed, I know certain players the disk team drops their stuff
down 15% i think it was. Those are the ones who will be inferior,
perfect example look at Kaberle on Miami in the league, he's a LD 3
and RD 2; 24 Shot % as a LD and yet only 20 as a RD , I think thats
someone who is you were to make him a full time RD he wouldn't do as
well as if you kept him as a LD. But since Vlady has the same for
both POS, he'll do the same no matter what. Am I right about this, He
should be fine at either position right?
- Hey Guys-
I'm one of the 3 commissioners of the league in question and one of my questions is this...If a player has an equal rating, for example Vladdy Malakhov 3/3...what's to be gained by switching his primary position? I always thought there were some hidden attributes/files that DID differentiate between between a primary position rating of 3 and a secondary position rating of 3...
Can anyone shed any light on this issue?

- In my own personal experience, what I've noticed is that JC is
correct, he should perform just as well at either position. However,
changing his primary will give the computer coach something different
to consider, and will change the ice time, probably for all dmen.
I've had situations before where the only way I could get a dman the
ice time I wanted is to play him out of position. IE a RD, I'll play
him at RD and switch his primary to LD (thus getting him a few LD
shifts as well), or play him at LD though his primary is RD.
As far as I can tell, the only way to check is to test it and see how
many minutes the guy is getting. But his performance should be the
same at either position.-Brad

- Regarding Malakhov... he played on the right side last
year almost exclusively. I know this because his
partner the whole season was brian leetch who is LD.
Thus malakhov should be a RD.
(i saw about 40 or so rags games last year)
