Lewis, Richardson, Clifford and even Westgarth played pretty well in the playoffs. That was trial by fire and I thought they represented themselves well. Add Stoll to that group and I think it's looking pretty good. I would have to agree that Parse is probably going to get a shot on the third line. A youngster from the farm might be a possibility as well, but I don't think DL needs to make a move at this point.
With the old personnel from years past, the third line was the shutdown line and played a lot of minutes, but now that you have 2 elite 2-way centers in the top 2 lines and Gagne being underrated defensively, I would imagine the third line will play much less minutes this season than last. Either way, I would be fine starting the season with the roster as is. It's not like DL won't trade for a player if needed by the trade deadline.
