I do think he has been as bad as he looks!

But I agree with the rest of it really... he was looking just what we expected him to be before injury, a ~60 point, 2nd line centre who was a PP guy with Vet leadership.

As for Raffl... I hope he stays and plays 3LW next year...

Schenn-Giroux-Voracek
Hartnell-Lecavalier-Simmonds
Raffl-Couturier-Read
Laughton-Hall-whoever (in any config)

would be potentially great... so long as the holes can be all made into nice square ones for the pegs! (which may not be possible.)

The biggest conundrum is Lecav and Schenn... they both look far better at centre... but I think Schenn is more likely to go to wing.
