Raddysh is a good bottom pairing guy at this time but he's not ready to be a top 2 dman.
Hopefully we stay healthy, only injury left is Wigle. We stay healthy and pick up that dman and I firmly believe we get home ice in the first round.
Harper and Genovese more than likely will get suspended. Hoping Knoblauch goes with
for the pairings. Also think we should have Burakovsky-McDavid-Brown practice together this week and give them a whole game Saturday to see what they can do. Go with Fox-Curtis-Strome on the second I think. Third line of Wood-Pettit-Betz should be changed. Havent produced anything offensively thru five games and we need a little more secondary scoring. Maybe Hodgson can provide it. Also think Murphy should be on that third line instead of Wood, not a fan of Wood. Hope Knoblauch gets Evans and Maksimovich back in the lineup as well. Stay calm and patient otters fans, this team still needs to learn. 2-2-1-0 is not a bad start, given all five games were on the road and most of the opponents were at the very least decent teams. Remember last season we started 1-4, the last game being an 8-1 rout by a not very good Ottawa team.
How many games do you think Harper gets for the slew footing misconduct.
