He should have been there this year. If it wasn't for Couturier having a fantastic camp, Holmstrom would have been the guy.

I think Holmstrom gets his chance in the fall as Schenn and Couturier will be 2 and 3 while Briere is permanently moved to the wing. I suppose Talbot could be the 4th C, but he plays his best on the wing. Moving forward, I think a 4th line of Talbot - Holmstrom - Wellwood would give the opposition fits. There's speed, there's hitting, there's agitating and most important, there's skill on that line. Leaving them as the defensive conscience on the team would be ideal.
