If he learned to play a wing and get to the sweet spots with his shot, with a playmaking center feeding could be a good thing for both the players and the team. People might give me crap for this, but the current 3rd line is not a shutdown line, so if we were to add some skill there, we could potentially run 2 1st lines and a 2nd line (Lokti,Stoll, and someone like Comeau-until clifford is ready to step it up).

Just my 2 cents, but ill give it until december before i go in WTF mode.
I agree with this about Stoll, something I've advocated for in the apst as well. Stoll on the wing with Loki at centre. It give Loki someone decent to play with (not Westgarth) who has a decent shot and can come in on faceoffs, which aren't Loki's strong suit. I've also advocated for a guy like Comeau, so good post
