Kobasew pretty much played LW exclusively for us last year. Yes, it isn't his natural position, but he played it alot better than Bouchard/Clutterbuck have ever shown. Gillies natural position is LW, as is Kassian, but both could use more time in Houston. Wellman played some LW as well.

Almond, he needs another year to develop at the AHL level IMO. We're going to be qualifying Sheppard and could easily re-sign Ebbett for peanuts, give them each a final look next year while Cody develops. If you can get Jokinen or Morrison on a 1-year deal then sure, bring one in. Can't see any other quality UFA centers taking one year deals, and those 2 aren't that high of quality.

Next year is still an evaluation year IMO. Burns, Barker, Latendresse, who knows what we can expect from them? How will our prospects(Prosser, Scandella, Cuma, Falk, Gillies, Almond, Wellman, Palmer) progress? Avoid ruining the cap of this team and evaluate talent for one more year.

Kassian could use another 10 years in the AHL, I can't see him making an impact at this level.

Clutter does seem to be a better RW than LW...but yeah with Bouchard at RW and Kobasew at LW that would be a decent pairing to start (not that it matters us talking about it though).

I also agree I'd keep Almond in the AHL this year, Gillies depends on camp. 4th liners are so cheap it's not worth screwing up the development of the player.
