I think Olli signing is fantastic; I can see him bouncing between the first and second lines until Noel figures out the chemistry. My question is with Olli being the new centre in town with Little, Slater, and Burmi/Antro (possibly Scheifele?) where does does that leave Aaron Gagnon? If memory serves, isn't he on a one way next year?
Oli and Little will most likely cover the 1 and 2 C until either or both Sheif and Burmi are ready to take over. Both Burmi and Little play well on the RW so there are those options as well.
Slater, Antro and Burmi will cover most of the bottom 6 with Cormier probably being the first to join the ranks there (maybe even this year) and Sutter perhaps in the distant future. Antro, (again) Burmi and Cormier have ability to play wing.
Unfortunately I don't see Gagnon and Maxwell doing much more than bouncing up and down with depth coverage.
