It doesn't seem like they plan on giving him any sort of offensive minutes on this club. Truth to the matter though is that he scored 30 points last year and has scored at about a similar pace(but in less games) to Abdelkader over the last couple of seasons. The guy wouldn't exactly make a fool of himself on the third line.

Tatar - Helm - Nyquist
Abby - Sheahan - Tootoo

Kronner - Ericsson
Smith - White

*maybe* keep Kindle depending on how he plays out the rest of the year.
Love the forward lines. I'd switch Bert and Nyquist though, feel like that third line would be a little too easy to play against otherwise. I think those four D's are the keepers too. If we could find a top pairing and top four guy on top of them we'd start to look pretty good.
