I'm certain both will come up when we have a season.
Pretty much. I could see Holland getting a third line start and if he does well enough I could see them maybe doing something like this.

Palmieri-Getzlaf-Perry
Ryan-Holland-Selanne
Smith Pelly-Koivu-Winnik

Watching Holland though, I still think even though he's consistently been the best forward there, I watch him play and I see even more potential in him. Like I see that he can still do better than effort he gives on every shift. If he can hit that potential, we're really going to like the value we got for him.

Plus it's nice seeing him outscoring guys like Couturier, RNH, (age difference I know), Kadri, Connolly, M. Foligno, Nyquist, Johansen, Silfverberg, and others. I mean this year's AHL is supposed to highlight a good chunk of incoming NHL talent and to see Pete up there at the top really does make me proud.
