There season is toast, and they should be moving everyone who is up at years end. Alfie included.

He is the 3rd line winger we desperately need.

Kills penalties

PP QB from the half wall or the point, or down low.

Leadership oozes from him the same way it does from Bergeron

He is a Swede, and could "chat" with Soderberg about the organization for us.

He is up at years end when we need the money.

Can play on any of the top 3 lines and be responsible defensively, and has a laser beam, creativity and a nose for the net.

He would thrive with 15-18 minutes a night, and could extend his career by another year or two.

Dream line up:

Seguin Krejci Lucic
Alfie Bergeron Horton
Marchand Kelly Peverly
Merlot

I actually think Alfie would re-up here on a 2 year deal, on fairly short money.

It works for me.
Agree with everything except for giving up Spooner. The kid is 21 and putting up close to a point a game in his first pro season.

He's going to be a keeper.
