that's a good point....
If Sundin signs, you've got 2 lines that each should be getting around 20 mins a game.... and Kesler has played pretty big minutes this past year as well...
a 4th line then becomes your special-team guys:
Krog and Johnson used in PK situations and key faceoffs... Wellwood on the 2nd PP unit, Hordichuk as the extra for games where you need his fists...
the utility line.... getting 0 ES shifts, as you roll out the top 3 lines with the rest of the ice time (Sundin-Sedin-Kesler).
Makes Pettinger unnecessary... Pyatt can still play in the 3rd line spot unless/until Hansen is ready to come in... start the season with Pyatt, and move him when you've got his replacement.
if only Sundin would sign... the answer to everything we need
