2nd when Connolly returns...form a 2nd line of Connolly-Kotalik- Afinogenov
Curtis Brown- Taylor Pyatt- JP Dumont handling the checking role.
4th line: Rotate this line nightly to keep everyone on their toes.
I see no reason not to try this. Looking ahead, Hecht will return and will take a LW spot. We all knew going into this season that there were too many forwards with similar abilities. There will be some trades by the end of the season. Some of the pool of Dumont, Afinogenov, Connolly, Brown and perhaps Zhitnik, will be weeded out by then.
Although we didn't expect the season to start off loosing 8 - 0 in two games, we knew that the rebuilding process was going to take time. Loosing Hecht was tough. He's one of the few gritty players on the team.
