They probably will want one more big bodied physical player. I'm guessing Camara, so my forward cuts are Lipon, Wilson, Cattenacci and Shinkaruk.
Top 4 are a given on D and Griffin and Frank should get the last two regular spots. Spott will take Murphy, so the cuts are Wootherspoon, Sproul and Dumba. Dumba is only still here based on his pedigree.
I'm not going to guess forward lines anymore because I have no idea what pairings or positions the coach will want to place these guys. I think MacKinnon would do better on left wing than right, but that's just my opinion. If Spott wants to keep Strome with his line mate Ritchie, that stretches the top 6 to a more balanced top 9. So many of these players can play up and down from first to third line, that anything could happen.
Well put , I have the same cuts with these lines
Drouin showed some good chemistry with Rattie so I'm hoping they consider a 3rd scoring line.
Shinkaruk played well but I think he and Drouin are after the same 4th LW/13th Forward spot.
Camara I like at 4th LW if they go with a traditional bottom 6, or with 3 scoring lines he'd be my 13th forward.
