That said, if he can develop good chemistry with the Staal Bros. whenever the NHL starts up again, he has a shot. I'd say he gets invited to next summer's orientation camp but, again, I think we have quite a few better options at this point.
Well, the line would have to have all 3 TOP 10 in scoring for Skinner to be given serious consideration. E. Staal - J Staal - Skinner. Where would you slot that line, # 3? Where do you put Towes, 4th line center? Other centers are Crosby, Stamkos, Giroux, Tavares, Bergeron (maybe)... just curious has to how you see all these centers fitting in and who gets moved to the wing and who gets left off...
