He'd also help our second powerplay unit for sure
I wouldn't think he would kill penalties and 5 on 5 whether he would go out against other teams top lines. If he had Hansen and Raymond on his wings I'd think it would be a pretty decent 2-way versatile line given he's got two of our faster and better defensive players
Then again we have the personel to create a line that focuses on defending with Malhotra, Raymond, Hansen, etc.
Then use Arnott with Kassian and Lapierre to try and dominate physically who knows
I wouldn't even mind:
Higgins- Arnott- Hansen
Malhotra- Lapierre- Weise/Kassian/Volpatti
Lots of moveable parts in there.
I still have absolutely no idea where Raymond fits... especially with Doan...
