Team Explanation
I think the Penguins want and will make a trade or two before the season. This is my scenario where they are not able to do that.

Also taking a stab at the taxi squad in LTIR.

I think I would prefer McCann on the wing but that is why I put more defensively responsible players on his line so he can focus on being the offensive catalyst.

Rust shouldn't be on the 3rd line

Miller either signs in Anaheim or retires.
He won’t be going cup running at this point.

I'm just curious why you think they are going to make a trade?

I honestly think their roster is probably set. Which is a really sad situation. But it is what it is.
GMJR has all but said Jankowski is our 3C. As dumb a move as that is.
He wants someone to take faceoffs. Which is why he won't play on the wing.
The problem is he's as soft as brassard, Sheahand, Bjugstad. That just doesn't bode well for his playing a 3C which is why he got replaced by Lucic in CGY.
