Kostitsyn on RW in his own zone has been a two-year train wreck. We get hemmed in for 45 seconds at a time, several times a game. Since we did not go and sign Frolov, we will need to develop our OWN strong RW with RH shots.

So, if and when Avtsin and Leblanc are ready (it will probably not be for 1 year or 2), I would like to see this:

Pouliot-Gomez-Gionta
Cammalleri-Plekanec-Avtsin
Kostitsyn/Pacioretty-Eller-Leblanc
Pyatt-Boyd-Lapierre
extra: White

Moen contract finished or traded.

While I see lots of offense and speed I see very little grit up front. We desperately need gritty wingers on this team, and these arent he guys. They all dont shy away from the play, but they surely dont start the physical play.
