I really like Winchester as a fourth liner. Excellent faceoff %, beautiful PKer and his boardwork is magic. Him being not that physical might be a blessing in disguise since it makes it unlikely that he will get overpaid.

I think the opposing top teams will dislike Winchester a lot more than some type of pugilist or agitator. Imagine coming to the faceoff dot, losing the puck taking another 20 seconds to regain the zone, spending the rest of your shift grinding out the boards because Winny will force you there and keep you there for days. Shift is over, you're tired and you didn't accomplish anything.

I'm all for extending this guy for three or four years. But that's only if we want Smith as the third line center. Those two are excellent bottom 6'ers and I don't mind keeping them.

Doesn't Murray always build a kickass bottom 6?
