What i'm most worried about is how Laughton will be treated. The guy's a natural center, right? I'm concerned that they'll try and shoehorn him into a winger spot to cater to Vinny's strengths over Laughton's.

Best case scenario for next year's 4th line:
Hall or Rinaldo - Laughton - Vinny or Rinaldo

What i'm expecting next year's line to look like:
Rinaldo - Vinny - Laughton
I don't know, people are expecting way too much of Laughton. Do you really expect him to walk onto this team and be better than Vinny off the bat? That seems pretty unlikely, even with how Vinny has played. Laughton's good, but he's a young undersized rookie who hasn't seen all of 10 NHL games yet.
