                      Lindgren's more then capable of backing up Price who likes to play most of the games during the season traditionally.

                      Lindgren can increase his value behind Price until he's about to go UFA at which time Primeau will be in year 2 of the AHL and not far off from being ready to play behind Price.

                      As far as bottom 6 forwards we have Poehling , Suzuki ,Teasdale,and Ylonen all likely to be either playing in the bottom 6 or in the AHL as waiver exempt call ups . Ylonen like his dad will likely take some time in the AHL first to transition then play a 2nd/3rd line winger role for us with similar style to Byron with less speed but more size .

                      Evans is also going to be looking to play a bigger role in the future and he rebounded nicely after a slowed start due to a concussion he got in MTL training camp but after 10-12 games he start showing real consistency infront of the net and along the boards but he needs to pack on some more muscle IMO but i said that about Lehkonen (and stood corrected)

                      i like where we are at everywhere but LD as Romanov would benefit from having someone reliable to mentor him on LD like a Hamuis or Russel for example . The bright spot is Brook plays LD as well because he is so mobile with the puck at high speeds Team Canada had him play the whole tourny there . With MTL depth at RD being so deep he might have to play LD regularly to get called up sooner then later.

                      i really would like to upgrade on Armia though and grab a big guy like Mantha to help protect the kids without sacrificing talent to do so .


                      overall though i love your post , i always offer my opinion but its not to take away from what you've created as its very detailed and impressive.

                      good job

                      For the ED I’ll protect Drouin Domi Lehkonen Kotkaniemi Byron Shaw Gallagher Weber Mete Juulsen Price Mtl doesn’t have to protected Tatar Danault Petry, they are all UFA. Gallagher will sign an extension before becoming UFA. IMO

                      I could package Mete and Juulsen in a deal, but Kotkaniemi is a definite no go.
