Good thread topic.

I also say Wellman over Zucco. MZA has no foot speed to get separation. He's too small to prevail. Only possible scoring MAYBE is shoot out.

Assuming Erixon getting more minutes down at Whale and we agree not yet for Sauer minutes (which I consider open to discussion), as and for a forward,

I prefer, ahead of JAM, who I understand is also smallish, giving St. Croix if available or Bourque -- think he's available --- a shot.

St. Croix has scoring touch.
It's not clear he's got enough else right now. But for 4th line a cup of coffee couldn't hurt.

Obviously, Bourque doesn't have most of Hagelin's ability but does have most of Hagelin's speed. He goes to 4th line and everybody else moves up one. He's smallish too but until he gets run over by somebody, he'd be productive addition, methinks. Not saying he'll execute shots and score, but see set up of scoring chances, and more part of solution than problem.

Can we also think about Yogan?
And if a grinder/fighter goes down, then as a specific replacement McNaught?

Thuresson, Deveaux or Newbury -- not impressed, ditto, and really not impressed.
