Team Explanation
No moves here; just a projection based on what we have seen and heard from Hexy & Co., draft pundits, etc. Lindblom and Laughton could be our left handed shooters on the PP. Patrick might get net front work in the mold of Simmonds. If Weal can chip in on PK2, that will help keep Simmonds fresh. AMac can keep blocking shots all he likes, and Morin can establish himself as a demolition man. The third line of Lindblom, Patrick and Laughton will be sheltered, at least to start. This is going to be an exciting season.

I'm not a fan of that third line. Two rookies with another player who spent last season in the AHL. I wouldn't mind it if they all ended up starting Game #1, but not on the same line, even if they do get sheltered.

I do like the TK, Coots, Voracek line to be reunited. Had good results until injuries happened last season.
