Team Explanation
There is anywhere from 0.5mil to 1.5mil in cap space depending on where you place Komorov, Ladd, Hickey, Aho, Wahlstrom, Bellows, Dal Colle, Timashov (Scratch, Taxi, AHL) The only real roster discussion is who plays on Pageau's line. Trotz loves to have two offensive lines and two defensive lines. So Pageau's line has to be defensively solid. He likes to use bottom sixers on his PK. For these reasons, I think Komorov makes the roster. Only bubble guy who can play PK. Dal Colle would be distant second. Not sure what they do with the other winger.... someone with speed or who can put the puck in the net. Or put Bellows there to showcase him for a trade. Just my thoughts.

Notable players requiring waivers for taxi squad: Ladd, Hickey, Johnson, Dal Colle. I think Dal Colle is a "healthy scratch" to avoid getting picked off on waivers if they tried to send him to the taxi squad. Aho is a two way deal this year and a one way deal next season, therefore he can be waived for the taxi squad without risk of losing him. Not sure if Timashov is going to get a one way or two way deal (details not released yet). If it is a one way deal, he may get a look on the third line or the healthy scratch department.

Well, that does not make for a strong defensive third line. I'm not sure who you put on the second PK forward unit with Pageau. Nelson or Beau? Not sure Trotz would do that.

Nelson played a lot of the pk last year especially in the playoffs and bailey played some time on the pk
