If the Flyers want the most balaned two-way line they can have, this spot most likely need to go to Laughton or Gagne, unless McGinn or Noebels have a huge camp, which woudl be great.
Well let's hope McGinn will have a good camp and can improve upon his corsi. He seems best suited on that line because he likes to get his nose dirty. I like Laughton too and I know he wants to prove he deserves the spot and would seem as the most likely candidate to win it but it just seems he's headed back. Either way I like the competition. Sounds like Raffl is similar to what Gagne would have offered although he sounds pretty good from what Lavi has described.
