I'm simply saying there's a lot to happen yet before the roster is even close to where one could make a reasonable judgement where a specific player would fit. Just my feeling on that.

He's a guy you can always use on your team, I'm sure they'll find a nice spot for him in our roster.

Moreover, in my opinion it's pretty pointless to talk about line combinations before July 1st, we don't know what will happen on this date.

I'm not asking for a specific line he belongs on. I'm asking where he fits in on the team.

- Is he a top 9 guy in a 3 line set up?
- Is he best suited to a checking role?
- should he be a 4th line energy player?
- should he be moved?

Using the line combos is a jumping off point for the disucussion.

How else can you discuss where a player belongs if you don't use the current depth chart and speculate on needs for the team? And how in the world is it too soon to discuss where he fits in? The point being is it could impact what happens on July 1st. Its no different than discussing where any other player fits in next year.
