I wouldn't say physicality is his forte. Unless we want to bring back another physical player to play with him, I'd rather keep the 3rd line with three speedy workhorses, then. We could bring Brouwer & Laich instead, but that would require making space for them.
Here's where I'm confused with doing that.
Daniel - Henrik - Kass / cool no prob.
Booth - Kesler - Burrows / cool no prob.
Now it's at that point where do we have too much depth?
Brouwer - Laich - Higgins
Raymond - Schroeder - Hansen
Lapierre - Malhotra - Volpatti
So, uh, I don't know. I doubt Raymond, Higgins, or Hansen would be happy playing on the fourth line, and then have one of Malhotra and Lapierre sitting out..
Also, yeah we could move some for picks, but is there a market for them? I'd assume none of them individually are going to get us more than a 3rd round pick, but yeah. I'm also a huge fan of each player. They're all workhorses. I think we could improve in other places.
