Worst Case Opening Night

Created by: jstreim

Team: 2019-20 Tampa Bay Lightning
Team Explanation
If Hedman and Johnson (both DTD) miss opening night, They'd have to recall Volkov to fill out a 20-man roster. Not ideal to miss 2 of your top-six and your top D-man. I doubt coop will set this up, but I love the idea of a Kucherov-Volkov-Stamkov line.

Missing 3 centers means shifting Gourde to 2C, Verhaeghe back to 4C, and keeping Cirelli as 3C.

As an aside, it's amazing how TBL went from being a pretty "soft" group of forwards to having a pretty tough bottom six with Maroon, Smith, and Witko.

Smith as 4th C. Verhaeghe is more of a wing than a center.

Palat - Stamkos - Kucherov
Killorn - Cirelli - Volkov
Verhaeghe - Gourde - Joseph
Maroon - Smith - Witkowski

Volkov is injured too. At this point, if all of the day-to-day injuries result in missing opening night, I would call up Stephens and move Gourde to 2nd RW to open the spot.
