I almost feel like I'd rather put Cogliano on the top line than Smith-Pelly. As much as I hate his contract, he did score a decent amount at one point. So he has it in him. Plus he could add some speed to help with the forecheck and backcheck. Think of it as a typical left-wing lock 3rd forward.
Send Lindholm down if the season starts. Maybe give him the abbreviated camp just to prepare for later. I'm sure someone will get injured, especially if they try to cram in more games.
Sometimes I toy with the idea of switching Selanne and Ryan to left and right wing, respectively. It's probably the exact opposite thing to do, but I just wonder about his declining goal to assist ratio and general ES play. Maybe making him play a little more like his PP role, especially since Ryan is an excellent setup guy on the RW.
edit: and this has oh so little to do with Norfolk.
