I hope Dowling actually gets to play. He seems like he'd fit another offensive system better.

I think Dowling is better than Dickinson, Comeau, and Cogliano. He's still just a grinder, but he's a much better one than those three.

The bottom half of the roster saw a lot of churn this off-season. Gone are:
- Dickinson
- Oleksiak
- Cogliano
- Pysyk
- Dowling
- Fedun
- Vatanen

Since Fedun is with Pittsburgh now, maybe we’ll be able to obtain him for a conditional 4th later once he’s good LOL.

That's a lot of scratches right there.

I actually wouldn’t mind having Vatanen back on the cheap. Harley sucks, so Sekeras Vatanen can be our 3rd pairing, while Hanley slides in and out.

That’s what she said.

They may have to roll with the Harley turnstile just because he’s cheap.

Benn is old and slow enough now to replace at least one of them.

Fun application of current nerd numbers to someone from the prior era.

That's when he was old too. Someone should analyze him circa 1997-2000.
