I think these are perfect lines if Avtsin was to play with the Habs. I don't think putting Pouliot on the 3rd line is the best idea because it would lower his confidence and he needs confidence to perform to his highest potential. Putting Eller-Avtsin together with Pyatt would be an unreal 3rd line imo because you got 2 good skilled players on the 3rd line playing with an awesome hustler/defensive player. And then on the 4th have Moen Boyd Lapierre, the bottom 6 would be fantastic
Expecting a 19 year old coming over from Russia(culture adjustment, small ice adjustment, language adjustment) to jump in and make the NHL team right away is not very realistic.

I expect him to produce at around 0.5 PPGM in the AHL at least for the first half until he gets adjusted. AK at 19...66 GP 12-11-23 with Hamilton
