Otherwise our D is set and then it's a question of what the forwards look like. If we cannot trade for a LW I would go with what we have under a new system which includes trying to retain Clowe at the right price. So we start with (meaning with Hags and Cally healthy)

Kreider Step Nash
Clowe Brassard Zucc
Hags Miller Cally
Powe/Pyatt Boyle Dorsett

I'm one of those who thinks that the PP failures were part lack of a point shot and part system. Moore, McD, and Stralman can all bring it from the point; they need a chance to be creative without the fear of a benching for any defensive mistake. With Torts gone I'd like to see what this group can do before making wholesale changes.

If Lindberg and McI prove to be ready early in the season then we take another swipe at getting that scoring wing. And Fast/Thomas/Hrivik are other wildcards that could help our scoring woes if they are up to the task.
I thought Boyle was gone for sure?
