Call me crazy but I think we could make it through without Cally pretty well. We can all honestly say Callahan's ES play has been FAR from strong so far this year. Leadership and special teams would be the biggest holes needed to be filled and I think leadership runs deep on this team. If Kreider can get 100% and play top 6 minutes then that would be huge. I understand at this point it's a big if but we say many flashes of his brilliance in the playoffs. Getting Ferriero is looking like a huge move if Kreids can come up because we wouldn't have to move any players up to a line where they don't fit.

Hagelin-Richards-Nash
Kreider-Stepan-Gabby
Ferriero-Boyle-Pyatt
Asham-Halpern-Rupp

Sure this is far from ideal but Hags was getting to pucks well tonight and could work well fetching pucks for the Richie/Nash combo. This second line worked well in the playoffs. We know Stepan and Gabs have chemistry and this could get Step going again. Big thing is the bottom 6 doesn't have to change and we don't have to call up Newbs or have Bickel play forward.
