Can Samsonov play the point on the PP? I don't recall that being among his abilities. I realize you tok three defensemen with little to no offensive skill, so that may necessitate a forward playing the point, but you may want to make it the 2nd unit and you may want to make it someone other than Samsonov (ideally a guy who has done it before, or at least a guy with some defensive skill and/or positional versatility)

Just noticed, your 15 forwards might be the most modern group I've ever seen! Hicke, Seiling, Olczyk, Buchberger, Sillinger are your five oldest forwards, in order. Yikes!
I think its a wash when it comes to skills. Both are different players so it will come down to what the line needs. Speed or a big body.
