Team Explanation
With a small budget you have to get creative with the lines.
The 2nd line found chemistry the last 3 games of the season maybe it continues.
Dahlin played on his offside with McCabe for a good portion of the 18-19 season.
Jokiharju played on his offside in Chicago too, maybe he can find success with Ristolainen.
I have a lot of confidence in Tage Thompson this season, he finally figured out how to use his big size before he got injured.
