He has great hands, and though his skating will hurt him in space, he has the talent to make defensemen look foolish with his stick-work.
I would like to see both Powe and Leino in the top 9 with Asham as the 13th forward. I know people will get on edge about this, but Asham has had an incredible offensive display for a couple games that I doubt he will be able to repeat. I think Powe with Giroux and JVR would be best while trying
Leino with Richards and Gagne.
I dont know if I would take Carcillo off that line until it stumbles...it seems to be rolling right now...as funny as it sounds to have Carcillo up there. But I agree that Leino may be the better choice than Asham...put Powe on with Betts and Lappy.
