I liked what I saw from Holmstrom and Laviolette certainly trusted him, even giving him some PK minutes. Holmstrom is the type of player who will make the hit, battle in the corners and has some size.

I am only using Leighton in the NHL because he is already under contract and Bobrovsky can get moved without a problem and needs a year of playing at that level.

This is the type of change I am looking at for this team. They need more guys who buy Laviolette's game, and a couple guys who are willing to do all the little things. I would be happy with Holmstrom if he scored 15-20 goals(he had 16-22-38pts in AHL on a bad team) and Magnus Paajarvi chipped in 20-25-55pts(Leino numbers) with Cole around his 25-25-50pts.
