Hopefully Lombardi will able to find one this off-season via trade or free agency. Penner can go elsewhere to drive coaches and fans mad with his inconsistent play.
I think the plan is for Toffoli to slot in next season. Sutter made mention in an interview that Toffoli is going to need to learn how to play left wing. That's a lot to ask of a young guy, but he looks the part when he's out there. Pearson is next in line at left wing as well.

Won't happen in this playoffs, but I still think Nolan has higher upside than King and maybe they flip lines in the future. Nolan handles the puck much better than King. Fights hard along the boards and has better vision as well.
