To me,

Vermette

Gordon
Chips/Bolduc

is completely unacceptable.

Boyd Gordon is the epitome of the perfect fourth line center/number one PKer. He should not be any higher on the depth chart as he is a black hole on offense. Why waste Lauri Korpikoski on Boyd Gordon?
Tikhonov is 5-6-11 +10 in 13 gp centering Tarasenko and Kovalchuk this year. Playing with such talent has to be good for his development, and the fact that he's getting that opportunity speaks to how far he's come already. I'd love to see him earn the 3rd line centre spot whenever the next training camp comes.
