Let's face it 2nd and 3rd are just numbers and dont have much meaning anyway when Torts is your coach.
Gabby has played RW his whole career.

And putting line numbers aside, Cally's gonna get 20 minutes a night...if you can find the minutes to put Gabby and Cally a 20 each and given how much Torts plays the 4th line, that leaves 10 minutes for the "second" line if you structure it like that. Essentially, given the minutes breakdown Cally is your 2nd line RW no matter what.

And given that, what's more important to fill right now?; 12-15 minutes of a 3rd line RW or 20 minutes of a 1st/2nd LW?

P.S. MZA is a potential option though I'd like to see him prove that he's a top 6 guy before we pencil him in on either side.
