Countdown continues as we are finally out of the dog days of August, and the time we've been waiting for all summer is almost here!  New line combos, new players, exciting prospects here to try sneak their way onto the big club, and the big club with nail biting decisions if that happens.  There is the nervous tension of the waiver wire, and seeing all of those players either get grabbed or luckily get thru.

  I'm waiting to see which winger shows the best with Pettersson and Boesser (yes, he signs before training camp and we all rejoice).  Will it be Ferland, or will Travis Green's whipping boy, Goldobin, finally snatch it to keep, after a summer working on his cardio and his shot?  Will it be JT miller as the winger with Horvat, or will Eriksson be coming in, hot and heavy to prove that not only is he a canuck, but has the stones to put the past behind him, and be the forward we need?  If Miller gets pushed down, will he be the 3rd line centre that can drive offense and possession that he seems to be, and who are his wingers?  Will a 3rd line of Baertschi, Miller, and Virtanen put the opposition back on their heels and make the choice even harder about who matches up with whom?  Does our fourth line become the most expensive in league history, with a possible combination of Sutter, Beagle, and Eriksson?

  Oh, and we want to see Markstrom be lights out for a whole season, our D actually start to find the net with shots while keeping the puck out of ours.  Here we go, everyone, lets get ready to be excited!!

Great question about their approach; some see J.T. Miller as a viable third-line centre.
