Hopefully find someone to dump Souray on.

Sounds good to me...
Lindholm has in no way proven he's ready to play 2nd pairing minutes alongside Fowler yet. Penciling in a 19 year rookie to that spot is asking to fail.

54 in 80. One point, one goal is the difference of Oshie never having a 20 goal season or 55 point season.

And this season he went 20 in 30 which would be on pace for 55 points over a full season.

Oshie is literally a perfect 2-way 2nd line winger. No one is saying Bobby Ryan doesn't put up more numbers than Oshie, but Oshie is definitely more defensively responsible than Ryan is and can still be counted on for 50 points (happy I didn't put 55?) for a full season.
I'm not disputing he's a perfect 2 way 2nd line winger - I was just informing the poster who claimed he was a 55-65 point winger that he in fact isn't even on the lower end of that scale yet.
