I see it like this now:

Huberdeau (A)- Nuge- Scheifele
Hudon - Mackinnon- Rattie
Danault - Strome- Ritchie
Jenner (C)- Mcneil - Wilson

Rielly- Hamilton
Ouelett- Harrington(A)
Reinhart- Corrado


Three very balanced scoring lines and a big, strong checking line that will keep opponents honest. I still think Monahan deserved a longer look, but there is enough talent still left in camp that I understand someone needed to be squeezed out. When it came down to it I think Monahan had to make this time primarily as a winger, but was outplayed by Ritchie, Wilson, Mcneil, Danault and others. The reason I liked Monahan to make this lineup is that I see him as a guy who can play all three positions on any of the four lines and in any situation. Versatility like that shouldn't be overlooked in a short tourny where several guys will be playing out of position.
