It's the grinders/checking line players that have question marks around them and I guess those guys are highly favoured by the staff.
Actually he did mention them. He had the four forward returnees (Strome, Huberdeau, Scheifele, Jenner) plus RNH, and the three I mentioned as his locks. Which means, if you take Bob's word as law, there's only 4 forward spots left open...to be divided amongst MacKinnon, Drouin, McNeill, Monahan, Ritchie, Rattie, Shinkaruk, Graovac and Lipon. That's a lot of talent you're leaving out just because you've already locked in your grinders.

I don't know, to me, it seems like a backwards approach. Especially since many of the offensive guys also take regular shifts on the P.K. for their junior teams.
