Agreed. Mashinter has impressed me, much more than Haley. Which is surprising, because coming in I had Haley above Asham and Mashinter.
I think Asham has looked good as well.
A 4th line of Asham-Moore-Dorsett is about as nasty as it gets, while having grit and skill.
Powe hasn't shown me anything. I'd send him down/waive him. Keep the cheaper Mashinter around.
D is obvious.
When Hagelin, Stepan and Cally come back, your remove Asham, and 2 of Kreider/Miller/Fast, unless one of them blows you away, in which case, i think you sit Boyle.
So a month in, hopefully it will look something like this
Mashinter or Asham
That's an extremely deep lineup. The D is fantastic. The 4th line is basically a third line and better than pretty much any third line we iced last year.
The third line could be very good too, if one of the kids can have a solid year.
It's a very Boston-Esque lineup. No real "stars" sans Lundqvist/Nash. But a very deep and solid lineup.
If a role guys goes down it shouldn't really ruin our chances either, with Miller/Kreider/Fast etc waiting to be called up.
