True. This seems like the most logical thing to assume. Like the past two seasons though Talbot will start to struggle on the 3rd line and Lavy will have to move someone else up. Always happens so I do not understand why Lavy plays that game.

They also seem set to try and keep up Laughton no matter how he plays. The kid really needs to go back. Looks outmatched out there.

Honestly Raffl didn't look the best out there but I was hoping him staying up would make Laughton get sent back and Akeson/McGinn/Straka/Noebels/Cousins to work on things to be ready for a callup. Now with Raffl in that bunch the callups are getting crowded.

Hoping they move Cousins to wing and try him out on the 3rd line tonight.
