Why not re-sign Hall AND another 4th liner and let Laughton start in the AHL. Then, IF Laughton shows that he can handle playing against men for over half a season, look at bringing him up then. We are so impatient to have out prospects play. Let them PROVE themselves in the AHL for awhile. I would rather Laughton gets tons of ice time on the 1st line in the AHL. Allow our prospect to develop their offensive game instead of smothering them in defensive roles. We can get cheap UFA's for that.

While it has been good having Couts in the 3rd line defensive role, it would be nice to have a rookie come in like Scheifele and actually PRODUCE offensively as a rookie. We all use Richards as an example of it working playing 4th line minutes. People forget ghost he went back after being drafted and played 2 more years of Jr. And got a whole playoff run in the AHL before touching the NHL.

Stop rushing our top prospects to play 4th line minutes. Pay the Hall's of the world to do it.
