I still see some moves coming to bring in some toughness up front, and I can see a guy like Lowry being moved to a 4th line winger for some energy. He played a few games (shifts) in the post season on wing last year.
I see Stevens or Doedero as the odd guy out being moved. Personally I hope Doedero stays.
A question I have for others, who takes the OA spots?
It's not an easy one - Akeson, Tipoff and Mascioli all bring different things to the table. I could see Akeson being more attractive to other teams than the other two, and bringing a better return. If Skinner and Morin both return, he could be made available. If one is kept by his NHL team, then I think he stays.
Tipoff is a mystery - there are times I love his game and there are times he completely vanishes. But I think he sticks around to ride shotgun on the kid line.
Mascioli is the easiest one to peg as on his way out, but I doubt he'll bring much in a trade. It would be great if he played his brains out the first part of the year, allowing Spott to deal him mid-season.
