It seems that we are still an inevitable injury or two away from icing something like:

dumont-leggy-4th liner
4th liner-4th liner-4th liner
4th liner-4th liner-4th liner

which wont cut it. again.


However, if our 2 top lines can stay healthy and the new third line improves, we have the ability to really suprise.

I agree, we need another forward that can play on the 3rd line, and move up and provide some kind of relief on a scoring line if needed.

Dumont - Arnott - Sully
Erat - Leggy - Radulov
Ortmeyer - Bonk - #####
Tootoo - Nichol - Fiddler/Smithson

Hordichuk in reserve.

If we could replace the ##### with a guy like Tony Amonte (old but solid and should be cheap), Glen Metropolit had a nice year (im just throwing names out there).

Then again, maybe, just maybe, the light will come on for Tootoo. With the way the refs are eyeing him, he's not going to be able to play the game like he has done in the past. Maybe this is the thing that causes him to be a bit more effective on the offensive end.
