Earlier in the year we had pretty much just six guys who truly earned the chance to be a top six forward. Now we've now got 8 guys who belong there:
Nash, Gabby, Step, Richy, Cally, Zucc, Hags, and Clowe.
I'm not saying all these guys are first liners, or that it's absurd to see them on the third line, but all of these guys have shown that they aren't out of place as NHL top six forwards. That's huge, that's basically what we had last year with Dubi and Anisimov instead of Nash and Clowe. Having that flexibility should push guys and should give Torts more room to mix lines without having to push guys into roles they really probably aren't ready for.
I'm excited to see how this plays out.
