Great answers and discussion for all. Really well done on both sides.
Just to add some content, Garman brings up the point several times that I brought up before BB conference play last year, that Turgeon really uses too much depth and as such no one gets into a rhythm. I think that continues to be one (of many) problems with the BB team this year. In crunch time late in the game, who do you put on the floor if you're MD? I honestly have no idea, and I don't think he does either. Depth is great, but you need to have your set line-up that you can count on, and MD doesn't have that right now.
I disagree that Turgeon is using his depth too much. The thing with this team, is you never know which of the top 6 or so guys may have it on a given night and need to become the guy for that given game. Nobody is consistent, so while one night it may be Allen who takes over, the next it's Layman, and then Wells and then Faust. Sometimes it's nobody.
The big men never really get anything going, so that rotation is pretty much moot. But for all the wing types (including Smotrycz here), he never really has a feel for who's gonna be hot that night, because how could you? So he's gotta get them all in, and in different combinations, to see what might be working that night.
I don't think Turgeon is constantly rotating trying to keep everyone fresh. He's fishing for who is playing well together that game. I think that's the right way to work with this squad. If he just ran with the same 5 and then subbed 2 or 3 guys as needed for rest or foul trouble, I don't think the team would find it's best rotation each night.
