It would also be nice to see Howden and Petro make a couple of appearances and maybe even crack the squad. Getting another top 3 pick to use on a forward will probably be necessary to fill out our first line too.
This sounds so promising. Unfortunately, it is a formula we've dreamt over and over. I too really enjoy seeing Shore, and especially Huberdeau and Gudbranson, do well, but even if Markström becomes the best goalie ever, we need more. This team is so much better than teams we've had in prior years, but there are huge holes, the major one being goaltending, the other being the lack of a solid star on offense to lead the attack.
