TT is a RW and the times that he plays off wing he looks out of place.
Behind Gagne Penner King Clifford and DB playing LW as his off wing we have Pearson Kitsyn (not until next season at the earliest) and Andy Andy who more than likely would play on the bottom 6 causing King Cliffy etc to move up.
After this season when Penner and Gagne become UFA's (if we don't try to keep Penner) we will have to address our second line LW situation one way or the other. Or I suppose sooner depending on how things go.
TT will give us a ton of flexibility for how we handle our top 6, just not by playing LW.
Where Gagne is concerned I am all for giving him as many as 20 games to get his head back to being NHL ready. The guy has been out for a season and is coming off of a major injury at that. Give the guy time to get himself back into the NHL game. My only concern is that with the shortened season we may not have the time he needs to get him back up to speed.
I think he still has game. Here's to hoping he can get it together asap so we don't have to be concerned.
