Forward lines need some shuffling too. The biggest thing must be that Kontiola can't play wing, or at least be very effective at it. He's a center through and through. Jalonen tried to slot him as winger a year ago when we had too many centres but Konna was being too good to be snubbed. Nothing came out of it. Also, if Aaltonen and Kontiola both make it, it's quite obvious they've been picked as a package.
MiG as a fourth liner is not very inspiring either. He needs an offensive role or be out of the team. And he should, by all intents and purposes, be a technical lock for one.
If we are to use Tormentor's group of forwards...
Filppula - M.Koivu - Ruutu
Granlund - Kontiola - Aaltonen
Jokinen - S.Koivu - Korpikoski
Komarov - Barkov - Bergenheim
...is the way to go.
