Oh and I also don't see Parse playing for us much, if at all. IMHO he either plays in the AHL, gets top 6 minutes due to injury, or gets traded.
I'm with ya. I made a fairly large post regarding the bottom six in the previous Roster Thoughts thread, but I guess it got lost once the new thread started. Basically I think we upgraded in bottom six skill but we're MUCH smaller, less gritty and less experienced. I'll post it again:
We're obviously quite content with our top six forwards, how do we feel about our bottom six?
Basically we got (just as an example):
We know that Murray will likely play Westgarth for at least 50 games. I guess Loktionov could be in there somewhere as well, or some other Manchester kid. Not a lot of size, not a lot of grit, not a lot of scoring in my opinion.
Compare it to:
from last season.. I definitely think we took a hit in the bottom six. I wouldn't change anything obviously, our team overall is clearly better, but I think we might need a boost in bottom six size/grit/scoring. Easier said than done, obviously. How do you feel about it? Confident?
Anyone still out there who could provide that boost?
