IMHO if healthy MM could be good for 35+/- goals.
Having Faksa, Rieder and MM in the line-up is a real good start then if Crescenzi comes back he should be good for an additional 10 goals above his 24 from last season.
But players like Pederson, Ming and Lorentz need to vastly improve.
Not sure if a Lesway or a Francisco has a future with this team going forward and basically have zero trade value.
But most of the success of this team will depend on either Murphy and Gibson returning. If one returns then the
Rangers should be fine....if both, it will make it really interesting!!
I agree with you. The way I see it at the top 2 lines would be the following in any combination.
Where you have Pedersen, Lorentz, and Ming doing spot fill in with injuries/WJC...etc. But we really need clear the log jam at the bottom 2 lines because we need to get Schmalz and Llewelyn (sp?) playing time and experience as well as who ever may surprise and crack the roster.
I don't see Grant, Lesway and Francisco with a spot on this team come Fall. I would rather see someone like Clampitt get the opportunity.
