I think we will see all kinds of combinations at 3rd line. Bringing Richards back kind of threw a wrench into the mix, as Brassard and Richards aren't really 3rd line players but one of them will be the odd man out and have to play on the 3rd line. AV will have some difficult decisions to make this year, especially if Richards gets outplayed by one of the younger guys.

Ideally, I'd rather have 3rd liners in the Bolland/Bickell mold rather than someone like Boyle, who has the size and defensive attributes but can't score, or Richards, who can contribute offensively (or at least used to) but is lousy defensively. But we will just have to make do with what we have and hope it works.
Agree, but they tend to get overpaid. Usually it's better to develop your own. We have a few prospects that hopefully can become players in that mold.
