Beyond that, I don't think Brouwer-Laich-Ward would be a good scoring line by any stretch of the imagination. That's a #3 line, a real dump-and-chase and forecheck line. Nobody on that line is a great passer or playmaker. Offensively, all three of them are complimentary players, but none of them really compliment each other that well. Would rather put Brouwer or Laich in a chance to succeed at 2W, and have Chimera and/or Sjogren fill in on line 3.
Does he? There's still some bargains to be had out there and there will be some movement around the league as rosters shape into form come Sept. Fehr was a disappointment his whole career here. It seems to me that the team was simply ready to move on.
