To be fair pretty much anyone paired with Bo could probably vastly over perform. Kenins anyone? Who did Eriksson play with primarily in Boston? Bergeron or Krejci? His zone deployment was 50/50 pretty much in Boston, I assume he had a bit of a defensive role there as well. Maybe a Eriksson - Bo - Boeser line could do some real damage and reinvigorate Eriksson's offence. For whatever reason he didn't click with the Sedins but maybe Bo's two way, powerforward style could open up the ice for Eriksson. Clearly at the NHL level he thrives with two way centers. Probably too soon to throw Gaudette's name in the ring to bring up Eriksson's offense.

I was thinking today that Adam, Louie, Granlund might be a pretty decent line. Each one has something to prove. Markus and Louie are responsible and could let Adam cut his teeth.

I like Sven.  I really do see a 55-60 point 2nd line LW if he can stay healthy

Agreed, it's all about staying healthy.  He's actually developed into a more complete player along the way.  He's really undervalued by many Nuck fans though.  Maybe he's not an elite 1stLW, but he's the best the team has right now.  I don't if he reaches 60pts, but he will score enough to be considered a very good 2ndLW.

 

A big season coming up for Sven; he really needs to show what he's got.

If he can transition into a third line two forward when the rebuild is finished I wouldn't mind keeping the kid. 

 

Anyone remember all the drama when he was sitting alone on the plane or something? People thought he was an outcast on the team. :P

Baer seems like a really nice person.  He’s very likeable.  I’m really not a fan of his hockey, but it would be so cool if he did put up 30 and 30 this season.  Really wanting him to do well.

Love Baer’s down to earth persona and ability to laugh at himself.    He is also a dog lover and those are the best of us.

Bo looks like he would rather be driving the rickshaw

Like someone mentioned Baer would look really good on a contender’s third line. Maybe with the nucks in due time...

 

Suppose both Baer and Roussel are LW but would like to see them on a line with EP playing C.

Watching some of EP's play-off games it was interesting to see when players would try to push him around, he pushed back.  He has some fight in him but I would still like to see some size on his line for the first season at least.
