NMHockey Posted December 27, 2021 Share Posted December 27, 2021 (edited) Get Podkolzin going to the next gear that he has the ability to play an elite game in. Slotting him in with Miller and Garland will push him in a very good way. He’s also a very mature rookie that gives 100% every second he’s out there so Miller and Garland will have trust in him. Put a steady, big, all-around Cup-winning veteran in Pearson beside Pettersson and Hoglander to free them up and let them fly and be creative. Put Burroughs in as the 4th Line right handed RW instead of Chiasson. Chiasson is a heady and smart veteran that plays hard but Burroughs speeds that line up immensely and brings more bite. He’s jumped up in deep many times while playing D so I see him being able to play wing effectively. Lastly sign Brandon Pirri. He’s bounced around a bit and has always struggled a bit to round out to being reliable in the 200 foot game and in health. But there’s no questioning his experience, his hands, his shot, and his competitiveness. He brings quality depth upfront and he’s played with Motte and Highmore in the past. Bring up Devante Stephens and John Stevens to the Taxi Sqaud now that Taxi Squads are back. Great way to keep extra depth around without losing players to waivers. Let Stevens and Stephens get practice time with the big club and see where they’re at. Late blooming talents that may still have the potential to become respectively an effective depth all-around D-man and a 4th Line Center. Both bring size, versatility, and infectious work ethic.
