Agree to disagree. If we can get better passing on the back end and size on the wing in the top 9, we could make it, so long as RNH rcovers quickly.

To me he's probably the best candidate to become a great 2C on this team - potentially even a 1C over RNH.
Isn't he a winger? Besides, he's signed in the KHL for 2 years. Since you just stated that Gagner isn't an option for 2 more years, who plays 2nd C if we take Nichushkin?
