4th liner who will net 15 goals a year
, to help supplement our other scorers ill change my mind. Otheriwse? Give me the 4th line RW who beats the **** out of other people, protects our stars, and crashes and bangs during his 6 minutes of ice time.
Boyle? Prust? Feds? Avery? Between those four, they're all guys that can score 10-15. Not exactly danglers.
Dubi-Cally-Gaborik-Stepan-Anisimov-Wolski-Zuccarello-Prospal-Drury/Christensen as the other 9.
The real question is who you remove to play an enforcer. We already have a logjam. I'd say that Dubi-Cally-Gaborik-Stepan-Anisimov-Wolski-Zuccarello-Boyle-Prust-Feds should be locks to be on the team. That leaves two out of Avery-Prospal-Drury-Christensen. You have to drop three to carry an enforcer. Unless you want to carry 13 forwards but I think this team needs a 7th defenseman considering how young we are in the D.
