I like the option of Kreider and Hags being able to switch between the third and first, since they will almost certainly struggle sometimes
Nash and Gabby should be on separate lines, since they'd just drag each other down with scoring. Stepan will have two options to pass to, both of which can be physical, and versatile.
And as mentioned, if we must, we can ice our own OV - Backstrom - Semin
I'm having a tough time thinking of a star player who was buried on a team as long as Nash. As good as his attitude might have been, losing drags you down. I'm really excited about his potential. Stats almost never tell the whole story (exhibit #1 - Alexander Semin)
Re: Doan...the challenge to the Glendale lease is officially over. The petition was rejected and the guys trying to block the lease couldn't find a local law firm willing to go to court. Now it's up to Greg Jamison. Either he shows up with his ownership group (or someone miraculously comes out of the woodwork) and signs the lease or it's all over here. If that's the case, I absolutely see him as a Ranger next year.
