Team toughness is a genuine concern with this lot, but I don't think Asham's time with this team is over.

In addition, I think McIlrath will surprise a lot of people at camp and fight for a spot on the third pairing. He will probably be cut, but I think he'll get time with the big team this season even despite all of the #7 options we have on board.

Sather expects Dorsett to take more of the Prust role now that he's adjusted to New York. With Dorsett-Moore-Boyle is a pretty good, strong energy line. The only skill player with grit is Callahan but I think Hagelin and Kreider are decent forecheckers, enough to make up for guys like Richards, Stepan, Brassard, Zuccarello who bring little to nothing in the physical department.
