Man...how things change.. Nearly EVERYONE here didn't want Aucoin on this team. The guy is an amazing leader for the younger guys..ALL the younger guys....even Tavares. Aucoin is the type of guy, I believe the Isles wanted out of Reasoner.

I call this new line with Aucoin, the "Gilligan" Line. Bunch of castaways that people gave up on, but proved to have decent chemistry. If Aucoin keeps playing the way he has, then He could be our full time 3rd line center..at least until we get to Brooklyn. The guy makes things happen. Putting him on 4th line would be a waste for him. Even Nino couldn't do anything. ACTUALLY, I wouldn't mind a line like:

Ullstrom - Aucoin - Nino in the future. Aucoin is the exact type of player that could jumpstart Nino, especially with the work ethic of both Ullstrom and Aucoin. Too bad both are lefties. Maybe toss around Ullstrom - Aucoin - Kabby or Nino Aucoin Kabby. Man, Aucoin is perfect for developing our younger prospects.
