Without Larsson pt 2

Team Explanation
What do you guys think of this roster?

Top Line you get a sniper that can play with McDavid for cheap. I think there are better options on the market but this was the most cost effective, and the other moves were more important.

DYN line stays the same.

Debrusk for Bear gives you a solid 3rd line winger while also allowing for space on the RD. Wennberg is a solid 3C and Chiasson replaces the grittiness lost by Kassian while staying a PP and PK option.

Fourth line we are betting on Benson and Mcleod to replicate some of the magic they had in the AHL this season. Archibald is the best option on the line due to his 2way game. Khaira and Shore can be subbed in for Benson and McLeod if they arent ready or you need more physicality.

Defense reunites Nurse with Barrie to keep the power play lethal. Keith plays with Savard, which is a player that can do a lot of the things we wanted Adam Larsson to do. Bouchard is still allowed to play on the 3rd pair with defensively responsible Russell as his partner. Lagesson as the 7th D and will probably see more time on the 3rd pair as he transitions to a full time starting player.

Goaltending gives us Jarry for Stalock (Weren't using but has value) and Kassian (Pens want to replace Tanev and it frees up cap for us). I think a tandem of Jarry plus Smith for two years buys the Oilers time for Skinner + Konovalov to eventually take over afterwards. Rodrigue is a consideration for the future as well, and Cossa could end up being the first round selection that completes the "Goalies of the Future" bunch.

Overall, I see the plan for the forseeable future being:
Draisaitl - McDavid - Puljujarvi
Holloway - RNH - Lavoie
Benson - McLeod - Yamamoto
FOURTH LINE WHO CARES

Nurse - Barrie
Broberg - Bouchard
Samorukov - Savard

Skinner / Cossa(?)
Konovalov / Rodrigue

That's at least my best guess at the roster looking a few years down the line, with a few holes that can hopefully be sorted out.

No sometimes I ask op why the deal makes sense for Boston, but I get no response. Sometimes I say DeBrusk for Nurse and also get no response. I try to change it up a bit and keep things fresh.

I know your not the OP, but your an EDM fan so I'll ask you....

Why does this deal make sense for Boston?

Yeah, I saw that answers too.

Obviously, I don't know much about the situation in Boston, but I looked at your depth chart, and...honestly...I don't know, it doesn't make any sense to me from a Boston perspective. I have no clue, why so many AGM make this trade other than that Debrusk is a local guy. I mean there were never serious rumors about such a trade.

That's why your answers always give me a little laugh.
So keep it up!
