This gives them three solid scoring lines and a 4th line +Tibbo that can provide some energy and fill in whenever needed. They basically have two top lines.
This is a fairly strong defence. The first pairing is a great two-way guy playing with Deschenes who is a more of a stay at home guy. The next pairing will be a strong shut down unit, Nickerson and Mccabe are both big boys. The third pairing along with the 7th D are all guys who could really fill in and all three guys play a good two-way game. An all around solid D core.
McDonald I think is one of the best goalies to come out of the Maritimes in awhile. With MacCallum backing him up this could be one of the more solid goaltending units Team Atlantic has had in awhile.
EDIT: Forgot Noel. But I would have him probably in Moody's spot if he's comfortable playing the wing. If not him centering the third line would mean three top lines
Totally agree that this is a very impressive forward line up. Should have no trouble putting the puck in the net. However I am not so excited about the D. I would put MacIntyre in as i am pretty sure he is Canadian, as well as Nicholas Gibson. I would remove Deschenes and White.
After this I would rate forwards A, defense B- and goalies B+.
