Heck, even if Laich lines up at 3C, you could still argue that's not an established 3C in that role (as Laich has done a lot more to establish himself at LW than at C).

If you look at the numbers, assuming Poti goes on LTIR, they have about 2m left for one player. We are 1.9m and change under the cap with 13F, 7D, 2G. So I can see them using the last roster spot on Eakin/Sjogren/etc until they determine what they have. It a bottom 6 role (could be top 6 if Laich plays 3C). 2m would fit the bill somewhere

Ovechkin- Backstrom - Knuble
Laich- MaJo- Semin
Brouwer- x - Ward
Chimera- Halpern- Hendricks
Beagle-King

Eakin or Sjogren could make the team and play that C role....or Laich could be there and then we need a cheap vet 2W (Stillman or Samsanov are who I'd like)

Ovechkin- Backstrom- Knuble
Stillman- Majo- Semin
Brower-Laich-Ward
Chimera-Halpern-Hendricks
Sjogren-Beagle
