Konk, I often like your analysis, however I would question your assessment on Mike Cichy. His +/- in the past couple of years has not reflected anything adept defensively.

I find the dilemma for most who project a future roster pick too many all-stars. If the players are slated in upon their natural positions, the roster takes shape in a more practical form. I had listed a roster on these boards a number of months ago which had Johnson centering a line with Wahl on the right side. In the few Chief games I caught in the last couple of seasons, Wahl was a RW. If Blais wants to run the theme of familiarity, those two may be an option.
I didnt make the drive up to Lake Placid this year but I get the feeling Coach Blais is running it akin to Hockey Canada's modicum wherein there is more intensity in the scrimmages, and possible rewards for that type of play.
