3. Arcobello has played well for us when put in a top 6 role and there is talk Gagner might be better served playing as a winger, especially since he's not very good in the faceoff dot. (if he shifted to wing I think his preference is the right side)
4. If you look at the make-up of our roster we have better depth on the RW position which is where Hornqvist also plays if I'm not mistaken.
