I'm guessing someone here gets bumped down for a UFA signing or a trade.


I heard Dave Maloney on his little exit interview and he seemed pretty sure the team would be addressing the top 6 issue via trade or UFA.

As promising as Krieder and Hags looked, I don't think Slats puts all his eggs in that basket.
Agreed. Labeling players as second liners or third liners is outdated in the current salary cap NHL. Every single Stanley Cup champion team has young players on ELC's playing on the third line who are skilled enough to be "second liners" but are there because they provide necessary depth and secondary and tertiary scoring that's so crucial in tight playoff series.
