Many of you seem convinced he is slated to play in the top 6 but I would be shocked if that happens. He hasn't show he deserves to play top line minutes, theyre not going to just hand him the roster spot based on his potential 3 years ago .
Who else will be there? Someone needs to step up. We just slot him in there because he fits the ideal role we are looking for on the line. Big bodied guy that can protect the puck down low, crash the net, bang bodies, screen the goalie, and actually pass the puck. That opens up space for Geno to carry the puck and lets Neal be the trigger man.
