What would you guys want to do with our bottom-6 ??
We have all those talented players coming up and thats so nice, but I get the intention, that we will lack grid next year again.

Right now it looks like our bottom 6 could be:
Palat-Pyatt-other prospect
Crombeen/maybe a serious though guy-Thompson-???
Labrie

Thompson is a hell of a 4th line center
Palat has great defensive awarness and will be a great 3rd liner for years to come.
Crombeen... well he is Crombeen and does what he is asked to do, but sucks at it.
Pyatt, well I'm not that much a fan of him, because I don't think he is used in the right position. He is less physical than Thompson, while putting up equal numbers and he lacks this mentality, that Thompson brings to the ice (aka the goal against the Devils). SoI would prefer to bring in a different player for him.

My problem is, we have no role player prospects in the pipeline, while it's one of our biggest weaknesses.

I would prefer a guy like Marcel Goc over Pyatt as our third line center and a though guy like Cal Clutterbuck as a 3rd/4th line . Maybe a guy like Abdelkader or any of the though Red Wings (they have plenty of them) as the other winger for Thompson.

My dream lineup would be:
Palat-Goc-prospect
???/Crombeen-Thompson-Clutterbuck
Labrie

This would be a very competitive and effective bottom-6 group in my opinion.
So what do you guys think??
