I have a funny feeling Smith and Wilson will be on Legwand's wings once Bourque is back.ou
I am curious though, Gaustad instead of Spaling on the third line? He wins faceoffs and is tall. What else is he bringing that Spaling doesn't? Spaling was a solid number 3 for us last year and really connected well with Hornqvist and Bourque in the playoffs. Don't know why Trotz didn't put Hali on the wing with those two as the third line until Bourque is back in the lineup. Oh well.
I agree about Smith bouncing back.
I think Gaustad moved up to matchup against Anismov's size. Spaling is our 3rd line center tonight according to what I'm hearing today.
