I dont think he will fit with Stoll on the 2nd line because there are no real playmakers on that line.
Be interesting to see where they put him.
I don't think there is a noticable difference between how Murray uses the so-called 2nd and 3rd lines. Every new winger seems to break into the system playing with Handzus, so we shall see.
Poni doesn't go to the net as hard as Simmonds will, but he does have a pretty good shot and isn't as reluctant as Frolov.
You know TM is going to use every line combination possible before the season is over anyway. A guy like Richardson could very well have a good camp and great start to the season and see a bunch of time on the 1st or 2nd/3rd line.
Thanks to all the Leafs fans for coming over and giving us their two cents.
