Team Explanation
Haula's a bit of a gamble but if he stays strong after his injury he'll be an excellent 2/3C.

VGK does not seem to value Miller very highly.

I like the idea of Haula, but I'm not sure Miller is what we need, he's not the most reliable guy in his zone, we have enough attacking defenders.

Bring back Zadorov? Never should have traded him in the first place

Pysyk, McNabb, Myers. Maybe we do not have Dahlin. let's presume we could have had him:
Dahlin - Pysyk
Zadorov - Ristolainen
McNabb/McCabe - Myers
Some people still think DATM did a good job. BTW Pysyk, Myers and Zadorov all had the second best +/- for their respective teams while McNabb is always near the top of ANY team he is on.

Yes it would be nice to get them ALL back.

Miller is a 3rd pairing guy who can help on the PP. You haven't improved your defense.
