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.
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.
Callahan's played like garbage this year anyways. Not a big loss in my eyes.
