  1. I just realized. Are we going to waste another year of Horvat's prime, and then saddle him with two plugs for wingers again when normalcy returns? God I hope Hoglander or Podkolzin blow us away.

      We still have Pearson for this season, and he's a good winger for defensive/ two-way support.  If Podkolzin comes in and proves he's ready we'd probably have a well-rounded top-6 (skilled two-way top line, heavier second line).  I also wouldn't view the 2nd line wingers as precariously, since I think if anything they need to figure out who plays bottom pair D, and if Holtby's still good.  The wingers will be fine (MacEwen can fit in a pinch, Hawryluk's probably got the speed to match, and even Motte could have upside).

      Pearson isn't incredible, but he's a capable second line guy. Virtanen could get there, but he's admittedly a stretch right now. Hopefully he takes another step.

       

      I expect Eriksson to be relegated to the bottom six or extra forward positions.
