Btw I think they should get a third liner and a depth d man because this team does not look like a contender, despite their record.

He's outperformed Marchand and isn't too far off of Krejci's points per game. They are your first line center and 2nd line LW. If Spooner is a Top 9 forward for us, he's worth more than 3wks + playoffs of Iginla.

Thanks guys. Didn't realize he was a rookie. Interesting for sure. If he's doing that well so soon he seems to have a legit shot as a top 9 guy in the future.
