People are just handing spots to MDZ and zuccarello. These 2 have to earn them, something that will be quite hard for MZA as we have 13 forwards returning and no one knows prospal's status yet. Plus Hagelin and Thomas are going to push for a roster spot, zucc was pushed out of the playoff lineup for Avery, he is going to have to have a great camp to earn a 3rd line spot.

MDZ is lucky there is limited competition. Acquiring erixon cost a bit, but the trade was made with hopes he can come in and play right away on the 3rd pair. I assume that means eminger will be brought back as the 7th man. Basically it is valentenko vs MDZ for the 6th spot. MDZ is going to have to have a stellar camp as well because the starting PP QB spot isn't his to lose, it's Richards job now so MDZ is going to have to play solid defense and look like the PMD he was as a rookie. I'm going to take valentenko's physical style and stay at home game to go with Erixon as opposed to having a 3rd pair of PMD of erixon and MDZ.
