Keep MIller with Gaudreau but add whoever I named before NOT named Kuraly and Barber. Time to change the recipe even if some thinks it's too late. But I don't believe it is.
The problem I see with this roster is the one-two punch at center ice that is simply not working. Miller/Kuraly have been essentially useless offensively, and both should be moved out of those roles.
Miller is much better suited on the wing from what I have seen. If it were up to me (
) I would ice the following lines.
John Gaudreau - Alex Galchenyuk - Tyler Biggs
Mario Lucia - Vincent Trocheck - JT Miller
Jimmy Vesey - Rocco Grimaldi - Riley Barber
Blake Pietela - Cole Bardreau - Ryan Hartman
The placement of Biggs may seem iffy to most of you, but this team is severely lacking a net front presence. Urge Biggs to use his size and strength to park himself in front and too create havoc.
I also think it is time to give a player like Vesey an greater opportunity. At the end of the day Housley needs to do something with this forward group.
