I'd love to see another line like 9-10-11 and see what kinda' numbers he could put up. I still think - even if we did move Dumont up to a top 6 spot - we've not quite got the right pieces to maximize everyone's skills. Maybe a 10-11-26 line with JP on the top line, but I doubt that's where Trotz is going, given the discussion that JP is going to see 3rd line mins. We're short a finisher - plain and simple. Horny cleans up nicely, and Erat has been effective when hot, but not consistent.
Given Poile hedged in that interview about picking someone up, be interesting to see if we're gonna' play JP in a top 6 role (after the meeting wtih Trotz that said not) or Wardo stays there or we come up with some other wing or center.
I just dont think there is any way we can leave legwand on a shutdown line next year. Goc is a stretch as a third line center much less a second...
