Perhaps you are right. Although I will say that the rumour is perhaps the best bit of insight we have, it's not definitive by any means.

That's why I choose to work off the logic behind it.

The structure suggests a C,W and D, so I naturally went with another D to replace Gardiner.

Personally I'm hoping for Lupul+ as a base, or worst case scenario Kulemin++(the pluses being conditional 1sts and Kadri) which solves a bigger need for us at the moment.

I don't want Lupul as the base. Mostly because I think he works best as a LWer, and we have plenty of those.
