**haha took way too long to do this.. sorry for the repetition
Not if he's planning on using Jordan's line against the other teams' top lines, like Muller said he would. Skinner and Boychuk both on the wings could score, but not be able to handle it in the defensive zone. He also said he wanted some scoring out of the 3rd line. Not with Dwyer and Nodl there.
It's the first day though, so I won't react to these lines yet.
I just remembered how bad our defense really is...Geez thats a weak group.
Like Faulk but he will have to cover for Pitkanen's wandering? Good Luck with that.
Gleason/Corvo as a pair have the lowest hockey IQ of any pair in the league.
Hopefully McBain has added a few pounds and won't be pushed around like a rag doll.
On other possible deals this week, Rutherford said, "We'll see. There's not any urgency." Said could add another "grit" guy.
No more moves? I hope not because we still need a 3C.
We won't be the only team having to make those decisions though. Won't be surprised if teams take the attitude that they did with players being sent down to the AHL the first time before the season with a gentlemens agreement not to take anyone.
