I think Methot is going to be a great partner for Karlsson as long as he stays healthy. He has a good first pass is very mobile and is more physical then Kuba.

No he doesnt have Kuba's offensive flair but he isnt going to hurt the team either.

Latendresse is a huge wild card, I am hoping between him and Regin one of them can step into Foligno's role and contribute like he did but who really knows.

The player im most worried about is Phillips, I just cant imagine him having a strong season I am sorry. He has barely been on the ice, is an older player and isnt in game shape, the season is condensed and he is going to have to play minutes. He struggled in a top 4 role last season and he is going to get even more ice time this year.

They absolutely need to find another top 4 d man before the season or this is going to be a very long short season, especially if there is an injury to Karlsson, Methot or Gonchar.
