The Manchester roster has become depleted over the season due to the NHL CBA resolution (Voynov, Muzzin, King, Nolan), call ups (Toffoli), attrition (Hickey, Clune), "politics" (Prokhorkin) and trades (Loktionov).

With the signing of Forbort and apparently Mersch on the way, maybe Dowd, Gravel and Shore aren't far behind either. Throw in Prokhorkin and Kitsyn and, as others have pointed out, the Monarchs could see a rebirth the next couple of seasons.

If all this is on one of Dean's charts from a couple of years ago .... cue "Twilight Zone" theme music.
DL is a mad scientist. He covers every angle of the organization and turned it into a finely tuned machine.
