I've always expressed that I want Briere to move to wing toward the end of his career. The hour is getting late.

Anyway, two things about Laughton staying up...

1. I feel that in general smarter players are able to come up early without their development getting effected too harshly. Laughton is a very intelligent hockey player.

2. I could see him topping out at potentially 50 points. He's not an offensive dynamo, so he's never going to get that money contract to the point where we have to really factor him in. If he does get there, it won't be for years, particularly with Giroux and Couturier ahead of him.

I was on the fence last night after the game, but I came to the conclusion that we could really use him.

Simmonds - Giroux - Read
Hartnell - Couturier - Briere
Knuble - Laughton - Voracek
Talbot - Fedotenko - McGinn

I like it.
