I thought the PP was ok tonight, just got robbed by Fluery but no doubt Vis will help out, and just help out in general for transition. There will be a healthy mix of puck moving and shutdown D with guys like Lubo, Streit, MacDonald, Hamonic, Strait and Carkner.

Adding Lubo helps so much, and bumps down Hickey (and hopefully Finley) to improve depth.

Then there is Bailey. Bailey adds secondary scoring, pking ability and once again, improves the depth we have. Reasoner sucks, so hopefully we will see these lines post Bailey:

Moulson-Tavares-Boyes
Grabner-Nielsen-Okposo
Bailey-Aucoin-Ullstrom
Martin-Cizikas-McDonald

MacDonald-Hamonic
Streit-Strait
Visnovsky-Carkner

Gotta say, it looks pretty nice. Just need Tavares to return to form and to get the third line going again, and with Bailey there should be a jump. And that fourth line? Turns from liability to energy.

Give Lubo some time to come in and then he can get more minutes. Even on the third pairing he should see 17 minutes easily given his PP skills. Also, he's a guy who can fill in the odd shift for the top pairing to get a breather.
