OK, plan B for a first line LW - Nick Mickoski.

While he doesn't provide the fire that Jirik does, he did have a big frame that was difficult to move off the puck, and was known as a good two-way worker. He was in the top-15 in goals four times and was a reliable and consistent performer for over 700 games from 1948-1960.

I wanted a bigger body and some two-way skill to go with Smith and Gagne and Mickoski provides that. Only one other available player has been a top-15 goalscorer four times so I am not sacrificing offensive potential to fill this first line need.
