Gillies would have a hard time playing in the Dix Hills Arena

Martin and Hamonic would be in the AHL developing

JJ would be a healthy scratch most nights

That leaves only 4 NHL worthy forwards in Moulson, JT, Comeau and Nielsen

As for D, MacDonald, Martinek would see 20 minutes a night at least for most of the NHL teams.

The problem here is a lack of creativity on Snow's part in the offseason.
I always agree with all of your posts, but you've gotta admit you're being very nice about the bolded guys here. I do even wonder if Moulson would be as good as he is when not seeing top minutes. JT, However, will only be as good as his surroundings. He will never be at the level we all want him to be without some scoring, veteran presence. (see Stamkos with St. Louis.)
